Job description

About us 

Foxglove is a non-profit that exists to make technology fair for us all. In just over two years, we’ve brought several ground-breaking cases taking on Big Tech and government – and won. 

We’ve forced disclosure of secret contracts between tech giants and the NHS, stopped a racist Home Office visa algorithm, helped make grading fair for all A level students in the UK, forced the government to pause the NHS data grab and helped hundreds of Facebook workers speak out against workplace exploitation.  

We are a small, growing team of lawyers, activists and communications specialists. We investigate, litigate, and advocate for justice in technology. We’re just getting started. We hope you want to join us.
