We have a licence to ask: What’s the world we want to see and how do we get there?”

We are a not-for-profit enterprise working in the UK and across the world. If you share our passion for creating a fairer world and want to be part of a diverse, high-performing, multi-skilled team, this could be a great place for you. We’re a friendly, intellectually curious and lively bunch – flexible thinkers, highly collaborative and always up for a debate.

We offer excellent prospects for career development and for broadening skills and experience. People join us from a wide range of backgrounds, ages and career stages.

It’s great knowing that your work will have an impact – and Social Finance is also a really interesting organisation, with many different areas you can work in.

What we do

We help our partners to design, fund and scale innovative solutions to complex and enduring social problems in areas such as homelessness, education, health, domestic abuse, employment, children’s services and social care. 

If you join us, you can have a real impact on these issues, collaborating with partners such as local and national governments, commissioners, charities, funders and the communities and people whose lives we’re working to improve.

Our social impact projects are funded by a mixture of:

  • Public contracts awarded by local authorities, government departments and health bodies.

  • Grants and social investment from trusts, investors and organisations like the National Lottery Community Fund and the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.

Our teams

We started as a handful of people in a basement with a big idea for a better way to fund social change. Since then, our big idea has changed the landscape for social funding globally. Now, this is just one aspect of what we do. 

We have over 130 people across our central team and our six specialist teams – a unique offering in the sector that gives employees the opportunity to collaborate.

I love the range of experience my job gives me. The culture here is one of trust – junior members of staff are encouraged to be present in the full pipeline of change.

How and where we work

Our office is in Vauxhall, London. We have a hybrid working model which supports a mixture of office, client and home working locations. We have quarterly all team off-sites, social events and unplugged afternoons with no emails, calls or Slack messages. It’s a friendly and sociable place to work where we offer wellbeing and support packages.

Our impact

We have big ideas and the know how to see them through. Some of our most impactful projects are those we’ve started small and taken to scale. 

Our values


We unearth the evidence, ask the awkward questions and don’t give up until we get an answer. 

Through rigorous thinking, and learning from others, we generate ideas that make a big social impact.


We look from all angles, welcome all viewpoints. We seek to understand without reproach.

We build strong teams from diverse backgrounds, with a shared goal to create lasting partnerships for change. 


We are ambitious for lasting change and won’t stop until social systems truly meet people’s needs.

Change is hard. But by combining social insight, business flair and practical innovation – we make it happen.

We’re dedicated to making our workplace, as well as our world, a fair and inclusive place – always learning and adjusting. Hear from our founder about how we’re doing this and the importance of diversity in fulfilling our mission.

We use a platform called Applied to reduce bias in the recruitment process. You will need to answer a few work-based questions which will be anonymously marked by members of our team. Our first selection is based on performance in these questions, rather than looking at your CV or examples of your work.

Below is some of the feedback we’ve had from candidates:

This is the first application where I feel like I am on a level playing field.”
It’s a fantastic way of seeing how people think rather than what is on a CV.”
