A fantastic opportunity to be part of an ambitious charity and social change organisation. We help millions of people improve their lives through digital, working in communities, nationally and internationally. We deliver deep impact at scale.

We’re looking for a dynamic Director of Social Inclusion to drive the evolution and development of our exciting and ambitious Social Inclusion programme. You will be joining a great team who work hard together and we have fun.

You will already be operating at a senior level and you will have successfully secured income from Trusts & Foundations and/or from Government to help you to drive your social impact goals. You are already well connected and networked in the charity and social inclusion, social mobility, or social impact sector.

Designed to increase social justice and to reduce inequalities, our programme focuses on four areas: employability and benefits; financial literacy and resilience; health and wellbeing; and English language learning for people who are native speakers of other languages.

As with everything at Good Things Foundation, digital is key so “social inclusion powered by digital” is firmly at the heart of our approach.

You are responsible for the overall success of the social inclusion programme end-to-end: developing partnerships, building funding bids, as well as ensuring effective ongoing delivery of all projects within the programme. You are also responsible for the overall income target for the programme.

You raise the profile of the social inclusion work of Good Things Foundation, giving speeches, reaching and influencing senior people in relevant partner organisations, and using blogging and social media to get your views and the work of Good Things noticed.

You and your team will work with partners and funders and inspire them to support our vision for social inclusion, as well as to provide income to help us succeed.
