A place where you will make a difference

Our people work in a range of different roles across the country and are all equally committed to creating an amazing experience for our students every single day.

We care passionately about doing a good job because we know our work makes a difference to the students who live at our 15 on-site campuses. We are there for them when needed, including when things are hard, offering the right support to help them flourish and grow in confidence.

You help a student solve a problem, and they smile, and that makes you smile too. That’s what it is about.

Your chance to give back

The Foundation focuses on funding innovative projects with universities and charities to produce impactful though leadership and public policy initiatives.
