Kick Ass Opportunity

Create a positive impact in the world by helping the next generation impact entrepreneurs succeed


Thanks for coming and reading more about Unrest. I felt impersonal just throwing you right in there with words like "Accelerator" and "MVP."

As such, I want you to know that the person that wrote this job description (me!) wants to apologise in advance for any clichés, tropes, or late-night-ideas-of-grandeur that you might find in the description below.

Our Mission

Right now the world can seem bleak, with global warming, social issues and deadly diseases at our doorstep. But there's a growing movement to solve these problems using business. 

That’s where we come in.

Unrest is a London-based impact accelerator, developing the next generation of entrepreneurs. We’ll help entrepreneurs launch Mission-Driven businesses, and support them to scale their businesses globally so they can make the greatest possible impact. We work with 30 companies a year (think the next Calm/Headspace, Patagonia, Allbirds, What3Words and Bulb) and are currently looking to expand our team.

How we do it

We’re bringing together the best coaches, mentors and business leaders – people who have been there and done it, and who can support founders to develop and fine-tune their strategy, MVP, pitching, and everything else that goes into creating a great scalable, mission-driven business.

We believe looking after the mental wellbeing of entrepreneurs is vital, and something that’s sadly neglected by many investors and accelerators. So as a core part of our programme, we’ll help founders develop strategies to be mentally resilient and build a winning team culture based on strong values. 

We will also actively look for founders from all different backgrounds right across the UK. Only 2% of investment goes to people of colour and just 5% to female-only teams. We believe this has to change, and part of our mission is to help redress this imbalance.

Finally, we’ll give founders a clear route to funding, building strong relationships with key VCs, Angels and other Funds. 

What can we do for you?

This is a Kickstarter Scheme opportunity; offering you a 6-month contract, providing you with valuable experience to build up your resume. You will be part of an energetic & passionate team learning and growing together. You will be supported by one of our team members and together you will create your personal Unrest journey connecting your goals to our mission. The opportunity is open to people:

- Aged 24 or under

- Currently claiming Universal Credit

- 25h/week at national minimum wage with national insurance and pension

*Previous experience of start-ups, the start-up ecosystem or the impact investing world is not essential.
