Since our foundation in 2010, Apps for Good has undergone rapid expansion. Our impact has grown by 10,000% within four years and we aim to be delivering 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 16. We believe that through hard-work, integrity, belief in the cause and a positive mind-set, we can change education forever.

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 become a key part of the Apps for Good Business Development team. Your main job will be to approach new prospects (companies and foundations) and be able to lead negotiations through to contract.  You will also be able to build quality relationships with our impressive group of existing corporate partners, such as Google, Facebook, Samsung, Thomson Reuters, Barclaycard and TalkTalk.

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 more partners and to build long-term and mutually beneficial strategic partnerships.


We would like you to have:

Five years or more demonstrable experience of working with companies to achieve income targets and build relationships (OK we know years of experience is a poor metric for talent so we are happy to hear more about how you rocked in different ways)

  • Experience in negotiating and closing £50,000-£100,000 deals
  • Experience in managing large companies and foundations     (account management)
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and presentation, with the ability to network at all levels
  • An interest and understanding of the technology and education sectors in the UK
  • An experience of creating project proposals including budgets
  • A good network of prospects is desirable.
