Careers at Apolitical

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 social learning platform for government. Our mission is to help build 21st century governments that work for people and the planet. We equip policymakers with the knowledge, skills and community they need to solve the world’s hardest challenges.

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.

Our platform is used by more than 200,000 public servants and policymakers in 170 countries, with community members ranging from mayors, ministers, and heads of civil services to policy pioneers and digital disruptors. Leaders who’ve recognised Apolitical’s work include Justin Trudeau and Ellen Sirleaf Johnson. Membership to Apolitical is free for all public servants.

Apolitical is a mission-driven for-profit company, backed by leading investors around the world and by prestigious European Union innovation funding.
