Jobs & volunteering

When we are recruiting for staff or volunteers we post details in this part of the website.

We support more than 1,000 leaders of social change every year. Join us!

Working at SSE is purposeful, exciting and demanding. You’ll enjoy it here if you want to spend your time improving the lives of other people and the environment, if you enjoy cracking on with projects with a fair amount of independence, and if you are open to working with people from all backgrounds.

We strive to create a culture that respects and values each other’s differences, and we encourage everyone to be themselves and develop their potential. Our values are integrity, empowerment and inclusion in all that we do. (Find out more about the Inclusive Cultures Pledge we’ve committed to.)

We’re inspired every day by the social entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs we support, and the impact our collective efforts create.

This video explains a bit more about us and who we work with. You can read more about that here.

At SSE, everyone’s ideas are welcome for how we can learn and improve. People at all levels contribute ideas for our future, and we collaborate as a network of UK schools to share best-practice, along with our schools in India and Canada.

We like to enjoy good times together too, because changing the world is an exciting task that’s worth celebrating!

Check out this video from our 20th birthday party for a flavour of what we’re all about. We won’t lie, it’s not always a big old party like this… but this is a lovely insight into why our students and community make it feel so great to spend our working days supporting them.

We also recommend signing up to our Friday newsletter to get a flavour for the kind of people we’re supporting and what social enterprise is all about.

It’s written by our excellent sales and marketing manager Dave. Dave was recently interviewed by JustGiving on what it’s like to work at SSE, which is worth a read too.

You can follow us @SchSocEnt if you’re on Twitter, and at Our YouTube channel has loads of videos with the inspiring social entrepreneurs we support.
