Democracy Club strengthens democracy and civic engagement in the UK.
We are looking for a permanent CEO as passionate about serving voters and strengthening democracy as we are. Over the last 5 years we have laid firm foundations in elections and are looking for a permanent CEO to help grow our reach into services that support everyday democracy.
Our vision is of a country with the digital foundations to support everyone’s participation in democratic life. We tackle this in three ways:
- by providing world class tech services to government agencies
- mobilising a community of thousands of volunteers to independently support democracy
- building tools and services that enable voters, campaigners and representatives to exercise their democratic rights
Democracy Club is a non-profit, non-partisan, Community Interest Company, registered in 2015. We have worked alongside a community of 12,200+ volunteers and all councils in the UK, to collect 100% of all polling stations and candidates standing for election.

Notably, we now run the Electoral Commission’s API and widgets, and in 2019 we sent 218m notifications in partnership with Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and SnapChat to remind people to vote with personalised directions to their polling stations.
Working in partnership is key to the success of our services. In and outside of elections we have provided democratic data and services to partners such as the Electoral Commission, Welsh Government, Facebook, Twitter, SnapChat, Google, Fawcett Society, The Times, Reach, Sky News and many others. We believe that democratic data should be as frictionless as possible to access and good digital infrastructure, paired with bold partnerships, are the best way of making that possible.
The CEO of Democracy Club wears many hats, and to be effective, must balance them all well. You will work alongside the board of directors and staff to serve democracy.
