Background

Tamba has been in existence for over 30 years and is the largest charity of its kind in the world.  We provide support, help and advice to 10,000s of families each year.  Our families face some unique challenges.  For instance, they face much higher risks during pregnancy and birth with an almost 50:50 chance that one or more babies will end up in neonatal care.  Our mothers face twice the likelihood of developing postnatal depression, can find themselves isolated and experience higher rates of relationship breakdown.  Mothers find it harder to return to work and our families tend to have less disposable income and a considerable proportion experience real material hardship. 

If you are able to help organise our office and keep on top of our financial transactions to enable us to work towards saving and transforming lives then please do apply.  It will be a challenge but should be rewarding and fun.
