  • We offer flexibility: maternity and paternity leave, adoption leave and flexible working

Uniqueness is powerful. Be yourself. We like it that way.

We support a hugely diverse range of charitable organisations all over the world and we want to reflect this in who we are.

Diversity and inclusion are more than just words for us, they guide how we build our teams and create a charity that’s the right fit for every person inside of it, where everyone is welcome.

We want people to bring their authentic whole selves to work to fuel our innovation and connect us more closely to the customers and charities we serve.
