You are ready to be scrappy, resourceful, admit when you do not know the answer, and go and find it. You want to shake the tree, rather than look for the lowest hanging fruit.
You want to work at F4S because you realised how school was so disconnected from the real world. You believe that there is a better way to make kids excited about their future and help them enjoy and fulfilling productive lives.
You believe that schools can use technology to change what they do from the inside-out. You have exciting ideas to bring to the table to help us see things differently and do better. I look forward to working with you.
You are already used to leading communication with governmental departments and other highly influential stakeholders.
You thrive when your communication allows the organisation to collaborate and influence others to drive a common goal forward.
You pride yourself on being eloquent and able to adjust your communication style to the party you deal with.
You want to work at F4S because you believe that there is a better way to make students excited about their future and help them enjoy fulfilling productive lives.

F4S opens the eyes of young people to the life chances available by connecting them to thousands of professionals with inspirational stories to tell and experience to share.
Teachers and professionals from across the UK have brokered over 1,200,000 student- employer encounters with F4S, inspiring young people, helping them to understand what skills are needed to improve their employability.
At our core, we are developing meaningful and direct connections between professionals, teachers, and young people, in particular those from more disadvantaged areas.
Our platform for young people aged 6-18, the Educator Service, provides a GPS system with recommendations to guide educators and young people to search for, and request professionals to offer inspirational engagements, which open the minds of children across the UK. Like Amazon and booking.com but with people rather than books or hotels...
Evolved with over five years of experience, the platform includes a recommendation engine, which guides the educator and young people to select the most appropriate professional to help them take steps along their journey to fulfilling lives.
Arguably our most powerful service is our deep analytics service, which provides a high and low level oversight of our engagements to a variety of stakeholders from parent to government.
We are hugely ambitious for F4S and our strategy is to deepen and broaden our coverage across the UK, so it is a strategy for growth.
