Careers at Apolitical Group Limited

Technology has transformed entire sectors, from finance to healthcare. But it’s overlooked government, the world’s largest employer and the one sector that affects the success and stability of all others.

Apolitical is a peer-to-peer learning platform for government, helping government transform itself by connecting public servants to the newest and best ideas, skills, solutions and partners. Apolitical equips government to tackle society’s biggest challenges, from climate change to the future of jobs.

Apolitical’s first-of-its-kind digital platform used by public servants in more than 170 countries, from mayors to ministers through to millennial digital innovators. Leaders who’ve recognised Apolitical’s work include Justin Trudeau and Ellen Sirleaf Johnson. Membership to Apolitical is free for all public servants.

OECD governments spend 40% of GDP on government and 10% of GDP procuring outside goods and services. Apolitical helps governments spend this vast resource better, supporting them to become smarter, faster and more efficient. This is critically important when trust in government is at an all time low.

Apolitical is a mission-driven for-profit company, backed by leading investors around the world. It was named one of Fast Company ‘Most Innovative Companies’ in 2018 in the Social Good category alongside Salesforce and Patagonia.
