About us 

Foxglove is a non-profit that exists to make technology fair for us all. In just 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. 

Foxglove is a young organisation and we are looking for someone to join us at an exciting time to support the smooth running of Foxglove as we grow.  The post-holder will support our finance and fundraising administration, ensure we have strong systems to operate effectively, and assist the team with office, diary and administrative support.  

About you 

You are organised and efficient, manage time effectively in a busy, varied role, and like juggling multiple responsibilities in a challenging environment. You value a workplace that is fun and irreverent, and you know social change is a marathon, not a sprint.

We think it takes collective effort to build something that lasts, not a hero or a martyr. If this role and the Foxglove mission excites you, and you’d like to support our work, we would love to hear from you. We are actively working to improve our diversity – because an effective and creative team is made of people from different walks of life.
