What it’s like to work for us

Our behaviours

We’re positive

It’s not a sin to be ambitious. We’re set on creating change through digital and the 2 million people we intend to help by 2020 is just the start.

We’re collaborative

Good partnerships are key to what we do. We love to share our knowledge and there’s nothing better than connecting with people who share our vision.

We’re curious

Finding things out is just one of the things we do well. We love to be informed and the only way to find things out is to always be asking the right questions.

We’re people-focused

No matter what we’re doing, people come first. Whether investing in our staff or designing a community learning programme, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to participate fully.

We’re creative

There’s always more than one way of doing something. We might not always take the obvious route but we make new discoveries along the way to getting it done.

"Good Things Foundation is an incredibly purposeful organisation, determined to ensure everyone is able to realise the benefits of being society powered by digital.

As a staff owned mutual, it’s also quite a unique operating environment, powered by people to whom this agenda really matters.

If you are looking to bring your skills to make a real difference to people up and down the UK, we’d love to hear from you."
