Founders4Schools’ mission is to improve the life chances of students by giving them access to inspiring business leaders in their community who help them discover the skills and pathways that will be relevant when they leave education.
We are always looking out to hear from great people who want to work at the intersection of technology and education.
Below are a list of our current openings. To apply please drop an email to email@example.com with your CV and a cover letter.
Founders4Schools is looking for an enterprising, experienced and driven Office Manager to enhance executive and office effectiveness of our fastgrowing UK charity that has just celebrated its first 300,000 brokered student-employer encounters. The successful candidate will be working closely with senior directors, and provide additional daily support to the team and office in general.
The candidate must have a university degree and excellent native level written and spoken English, an eye for detail and a love of what we are all about; improving the life chances of students and inspiring the next generation.
We are looking for an ambitious, dynamic Full Stack Developer to join our London based development team. Our platform enables teachers to discover leading business leaders in order to inspire their students through high-impact events. Our existing platform is built using Python, Django, PostgreSQL, and Heroku. The platform also utilises the latest APIs from LinkedIn, Duedil and others to find, validate and invite speakers. More recently we have launched a web/mobile service which allows students to find work experience with our large community of businesses across the UK.
“We are a dynamic, passionate and ambitious charity dedicated to putting an end to the skills gap. We have set ourselves some big targets in order to make a difference for children from some of the poorest backgrounds in the UK.” Born in 2011, Founders4Schools began as an extension of Silicon Valley Comes to the UK as a manually curated idea to bring inspiring entrepreneurs to universities and schools. The feedback from parents, educators and students was so powerful, we decided to think about how we could use technology common in other industries to the education industry. So by 2013, spurred on by encouragement from Government, industry and the educational sector we collaborated with linkedin, edubase, duedil to create a tech platform that supercharged educators to create student-employer encounters as easily as buying a book on Amazon.
If you want to work for a dynamic mission-driven charity empowering and influencing millions of students around the world, then this is the job for you! You will be supporting our effort to have a significant impact on the employability of students before they leave education. We leverage technology to broker interactions between business leaders and young people to help them make critically important choices throughout their lives which render them more employable. Successful applicants will be based in stunning offices in Central London and will be part of a talented and dedicated team where social cause is at the heart of what we do.
