We are delighted that you are interested in joining Engage Britain an exciting charity who are searching for an exceptional Head of Digital to join us.

About Engage Britain
Engage Britain will put people at the heart of policy development, ensuring that those who are affected by policies can contribute their knowledge and experiences to their creation. Great ideas come from combining our different views, knowledge and experiences, so we’ll bring people together to talk and listen. Where voices have been excluded or unheard, we’ll make sure we’re all equally involved in finding answers. Where the problem is rooted in our differences of opinion, we’ll work together to build on the things we agree on.
As ideas emerge, we will test these ideas, learn from and re-test them until everyone is confident they will make a positive difference. And then we’ll work together – with citizens, practitioners, communities and politicians - to make them happen and use them to improve people’s lives.
Our differences are not something to be feared; our differences will enable us to create imaginative, practical and radical answers to the problems our country faces.
Engage Britain is committed to creating a culture where people from different backgrounds and cultures can come together to share their views and voice. We see difference – both in our work and in our employees – as a strength, so we actively encourage applicants from all ethnicities, political backgrounds and locations across the UK, those with or without a university education, as well as people who identify as LGBTQ+ or people who may have disabilities, to apply for roles. We are also a family friendly organisation and are open to different flexible working arrangements from people across the UK. We very much look forward to hearing from you.
