About us

Good Things Foundation operates in the UK and Australia. We believe in a world where everyone can benefit from digital and our new strategy has one mission: to Fix The Digital Divide – for Good. We’re making that a reality by creating a national infrastructure for digital inclusion and delivering change on a large scale.

Since 2010 we have worked with partners across the globe and helped over 4 million people improve their lives using digital, including helping them get jobs and improve their health and wellbeing.

About the role

We’re looking for an outstanding senior leader to help us lead our groundbreaking work to Fix The Digital Divide.

In 2022 Good Things Foundation, the UK’s leading digital inclusion charity and a global leader in community innovation, launched the National Databank – a ‘national food back for connectivity data’ – as a response to digital poverty in the UK. We’re piloting a National Device Bank to turn end of life equipment into new hope for those unable to afford the internet, while fuelling the circular economy. And our new strategy for digital inclusion is ambitious: by the end of 2025 we want to engage 1 million people across the country, building their confidence and skills with technology.

It’s never been more important that everyone can benefit from the digital world, particularly right now with so many global challenges – and we’re determined to change the national infrastructure in the UK to drive a step change in digital inclusion.

We’re now recruiting for a new post on our Senior Management Team to ensure we meet our delivery goals. An inspirational leader able to take our world leading service innovations to scale, working with our network of community partners and ensuring the best outcomes for our beneficiaries.

Our new strategy is delivered through three core digital inclusion services: a national network of community partners (digital inclusion hubs), a national databank, and a national device bank.

The new role of Associate Director Digital Inclusion Delivery has been established to ensure mission-led, effective and efficient delivery of those three services that will deliver positive outcomes for digitally excluded people and the thousands of community organisations who support them.

Are you that person? You’ll have the opportunity to work with one of the most dynamic and impactful charities in the UK, lead our amazing and committed delivery team, and change people’s lives for the better.
