Additionally, through our parent organisation the Timewise Foundation, JPMorgan Chase Foundation is helping us to stimulate the creation of a quality part time jobs market.

Women Like Us is supported by the Big Lottery Fund to develop the advice, support and recruitment service that we offer to employers, in order to stimulate the supply of quality part time vacancies in London. The funding will also enable us to scale up our ability to support more parents and carers into these vacancies.

As well as financial investment, Nesta provides a package of non-financial support to build and launch the online career portal, and contribute to developing a network of professional women who will volunteer as career sharers.
