About Social Tech Trust
The cost-of-living crisis, global economic downturn and continuing pandemic are contributing to an uncertain environment where it is more important than ever that we find solutions to the challenges people face. Tech is not a panacea, but it is part of almost every solution. We are working to ensure that early-stage companies are able to do good with technology.
Social Tech Trust is at an exciting stage. Our vision is a world where social transformation is the driving force behind tech. We’ve already invested more than £30m in 300 socially motivated initiatives over the last decade. We’re now ready to scale our impact by creating a new investment fund for early-stage social tech ventures. Our fund is based on a flexible VC model that combines elements of revenue-based investment and venture capital to enable social tech ventures to build their sustainability and increase their impact.
Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion: Having worked with many organisations that champion equality, diversity and inclusion from a range of backgrounds and perspectives, we’re committed to the same principles in our own employment practices. We actively welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, gender, disability, religion/belief, socio economic background, sexual orientation or age.
Our approach to recruitment: We know that well qualified people often screen themselves out as they can’t tick all the boxes of the job description, or their imposter syndrome kicks in. No-one can do everything perfectly, so we are looking to build a team with complementary skills and the right attitude and values. So, if you are wavering, we encourage you to apply.
