Jobs For Good is closing the gap between impactful businesses and the mission-driven talent that want to help them change the world for the better. They exclusively post jobs that help tackle environmental or social problems in impactful organisations, startups and scaleups.
Jobs For Good aims to make mission-driven hiring easier
People want purpose in every aspect of their lives, including their work
A survey* by Prospects revealed that 91% of graduates want to make a difference with their job, with a further 86% stating it was vital that the company they work for has a positive environmental impact.
This appetite for purpose doesn’t end with graduates, it stretches across seniority levels. Research by McKinsey & Company** confirms this, as 82% of employees surveyed claimed they believe it’s important for their company to have a purpose.
Growing demand for mission-driven talent
Demand is growing for both job seekers and employers, with the latest PwC Green Jobs Barometer*** revealing the number of green jobs is growing at around four times the rate of the overall UK employment market.
The Jobs For Good team aims to remove the barriers of entry and bridge that gap between candidate and employer so everyone can make an impact through their work. Jobs For Good is the only job board that shares live roles across 11 impact areas, including climate change, social impact, renewable energy, and conservation.
Impact beyond posting jobs
As well as donating 2% of their profits every year to a range of impact partners and charities, Jobs For Good plants trees or offsets carbon for every approved job listing they share. To date, they have planted over 400 trees and funded two climate projects thanks to their partnership with Ecologi. The team also organises four volunteering days and two fundraisers per year, most recently raising over £1,000 for Alzheimer’s Society.
Quote from CEO, Olivia Spaethe:
‘Lots of people I had spoken to wanted a job where they could help solve a big environmental or social issue but didn’t believe they had the skills or experience to do so. There’s a common misconception that in order to help tackle a problem like climate change you need to be a climate scientist or have a PHD, but that isn’t the case. The reality is everyone can use their talents to make positive impact, whether you’re a sustainability officer, a developer, or a marketeer. That’s why we share roles across a range of skillsets and sectors on Jobs For Good.’
