“You never know what will happen to you in life. Carrying such a sick child is probably every mother’s worst nightmare. I will support you as much as I can, because I know that there will be more and more women like me.”



We hope that you’ve found this site comprehensive and persuasive and that the information provided has enabled you to make an informed decision about your application. Before you apply, please ensure you have read the role profile and person specification in detail. For a confidential, informal conversation, please contact Deborah Thomas or Aino Betts at Cadence Partners at

If you require the candidate materials in an alternative format, please request it in your initial contact.


Abortion Support Network especially encourages applications from racially minoritised people, LGBTQ+ people (we are a trans-inclusive organisation), people with disabilities, and people who have experienced other exclusion or marginalisation. We have tried to make this recruitment process as accessible as possible, but if you have particular needs please let us know when you apply and we can think together about how to make this process more accessible for you.

Applicants from outside the UK

As an organisation that supports people from across Europe, ASN welcomes applications from people across Europe. However, as a small charity, we are not licensed as a sponsoring employer with the UK Home Office for international recruitment. ASN is legally obliged to ask for documentation to validate your right to work in the UK. All successful applicants will be asked to provide two pieces of identification as proof of identity and residential address to enable ASN to meet UK audit regulations. International candidates will need to be legally able to work in the UK.

How to apply

Cadence Partners are using Applied, a new application platform developed by the Behavioural Insights Team, to record your application. Applied is focused on using behavioural and data science to improve hiring decisions and minimise unconscious bias in the recruitment process. You will be asked to respond to three questions which will allow you to express your match against the person specification.

Your answer to each question will be viewed in isolation, and reviewed against the job specification. Please therefore ensure there is enough detail in your response and evidence in that single response, without any references to your other responses.

NB: Whilst we are asking for your CV, please note that we will not be viewing your CV during the initial sift process. The selection panel will not have access to your CV, so it is therefore essential that you respond to each question fully.
