We are serious about delivering social mobility through our vision that one day everyone builds the essential skills to succeed. That means we are ambitious and set high standards for ourselves. We are reflective, inclusive and supportive. In practice this means that everyone makes time for others in the team, we get stuck in to solve problems together, we have regular employee surveys where leadership talk through every single suggestion and the whole team is involved in developing our strategy.

What our team say


Our team consistently say they have never worked anywhere as supportive, friendly or collaborative. We genuinely care about each other and our mission.

We are delivering system change in a way that is tangible, working with a wide range of partners to have a social impact.


Every day, we make work fun!

Skills Builder is somewhere you can grow and learn. We build our own essential skills alongside our technical skills and expertise.
