At Apps for Good, we are a dynamic team of passionate and innovative people, looking to welcome a Marketing and Events Executive.

Since our birth in 2010, Apps for Good has undergone rapid expansion. Our impact has grown by 10,000% within four years and we aim to deliver our course to 40% of all secondary schools across the whole of the UK by 2016. However, whilst our ambition is great, we still remain a small and close-knit team of 17. We believe that through hard-work, integrity, belief in the cause and a positive mind-set, we can change education forever.


About You

Now is the time for you to join Apps for Good and be part of the small yet energetic group of people that has and will continue to have a profound impact on the skills and prospects of young people, helping them to becoming creators – and not simply consumers – of technology.

You will be an integral part of the Apps for Good Communications and Communities team. Your main job will be to support the delivery of effective events for the organisation and marketing and communications to our key audiences – educators, students and technology professionals – as well as the wider public, to help grow our reach and impact and raise our public profile. You will play a key role in running our national Apps for Good Awards at the Barbican Centre and our App Launch.

We teach our Apps for Good students to be problem-solvers, to be inquisitive and to always be ready to pivot. We therefore value the same qualities within our team. We believe in a ‘can do’ approach and we strongly support a work/life balance. The result is an organisation that exceeds targets and achieves incredible growth whilst still socialising together at work or during a nice meal (a very important statistic about the team: two-thirds of us are foodies and love to hunt for the newest coolest restaurant in town!)

If you believe in the power of technology and education, then you will be the perfect fit within our team. We want to continue to grow and that is why we need you to help us reach out to new educators, students and technology professionals and deliver outstanding events for our communities.


We are looking for someone with:

  • A university degree or equivalent experience
  • Excellent communication skills, especially to write clear, effective and grammatically correct prose
  • Strong organisational skills
  • Familiarity with design software (InDesign, Photoshop etc) as a bonus

In addition, we’d love you to have the following either through professional or voluntary work:

  • Experience planning and delivering events and overseeing event budgets
  • Experience producing and organising marketing materials
  • Expertise in using social media channels including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, with experience crafting effective and sharable messages and monitoring reach
  • Experience and/or interest in developing expertise in using online analytics tools

Start Date: ASAP 
Location: Old Street 
Hours: Full time, 4 month contract, with possibility of permanent position
