We’re on a mission to level the playing field when it comes to young people finding and applying for their next step after school. We're achieving this by bringing all the available information into one single, impartial, user-friendly platform that helps students to make the best choices, and submit the strongest applications. We also empower teachers and counsellors to manage the progression process effectively.
Our outlook is global - we work with schools and universities all over the world, from the US to New Zealand, and from Italy to Hong Kong. We want to make it so that young people can compare every opportunity taught in English, wherever it is in the world, and have all the support they need to make successful applications.
We have a clear social purpose, and we’re hugely ambitious. We already work with over half of UK secondary schools, and hundreds of international schools. We are growing rapidly in terms of the number of our customers, in terms of how much they use our platform, and in terms of the breadth of products we offer (check out this video to hear more about the Unifrog platform).
Our team is at the heart of our business and is integral to our success. We work hard to foster a culture of openness, happiness and innovation, and we commit to helping every individual learn and grow so that they can reach their full potential. We want to hire talented people, whatever their background. If you are excited by our mission and are ready to work hard, please don’t hesitate to apply. We look forward to hearing from you!
We believe in the power of diversity. If you are from an ethnic minority background, we would like to strongly encourage you to apply. In advance of applying if you have any questions about working at Unifrog, please contact our Diversity Champions, Hannah and Farhana.
Work experience at Unifrog
Last academic year, we introduced our brand new Unifrog Placements tool and, since then, over 1,000 schools and 80,000 students have engaged with the tool to support their work experience programme. The Placements tool makes it quick and easy for schools and colleges to administer work experience, virtual work experience (VWEX), work shadowing and internships, all in one central place on the Unifrog platform. The more schools that sign up to and get started with Placements, the closer we can get to levelling the playing field for all students.
What you’ll do
As our first Work Experience Lead, you will provide outstanding customer support for school and college partners using our Placements tool. You’ll be the first point of contact for any queries about the tool, resolving any issues partners, parents or employers have with the process. You’ll also be responsible for tracking the engagement and impact of the Placements tool across our partner schools, and keeping Account Managers up to speed on this throughout the academic year.
Manage incoming queries about our Placements tool via phone call and email.
Keep Salesforce records up to date after any interactions with partner schools and colleges.
Continually suggest and streamline our Work Experience processes using feedback from our partners.

Support the Account Managers with training individuals from partner schools on the Placements tool during busy periods.
Proactively look for opportunities to continue improving our platform and support of Work Experience within schools and colleges. For example, reviewing survey responses to identify potential tweaks or process improvements.
Support the UK Partner Success Team during busy periods, e.g. uploading school data onto the platform and troubleshooting any issues partner schools and colleges are experiencing.
Proactively work to foster a sense of community amongst our Unifrog partners and consider how we can promote the sharing and embedding of Unifrog best practice.
You’ll work alongside the Partner Success Leads, Placements Champions and wider UK schools and colleges team. You’ll also have contact with our Data, Marketing and Finance teams.
You’ll report to the Head of Partner Success.
What we’re looking for
Strong communication skills - both written and over the phone
Proven track record of excellent customer service
Proficient in data analysis and excel
Active listening skills
Keen attention to detail
Strong organisational skills

Inclusion and diversity at Unifrog
Within the company we try to foster a culture of innovation, and a happy working environment, both because this is the right thing to do, and because we think this results in the most effective team. To this end we believe in open communication, celebrating successes, supporting each other, not being afraid to be wrong or to fail, and promoting good ideas wherever they come from.
As a platform that supports teachers and students from a huge variety of backgrounds it’s important that our team and leadership reflects this diversity. This is something we are actively working towards and prioritising. We want to embed diversity, equity and inclusion across everything we do, continually evaluating policies and practices to make sure they are inclusive and equitable.
To make sure everyone’s voice is heard and people have the opportunities to learn to be better allies in the workplace, we encourage the team to share what they’re celebrating, facilitate training and group discussions, and seek regular feedback about what more the company could do to help people feel included.
To ensure that our recruitment process is consistent and fair, we anonymise your application and therefore do not see your name, personal, educational or professional background. We also randomise the order of responses so that it’s less likely that a candidate is advantaged or disadvantaged by where their answers appear compared to other candidates.

The UK has one of the worst rates for social mobility in Europe. Zero Gravity is changing that through the power of tech, backed by ~£4m in equity investment from leading social impact investors.
Our platform finds talented people in low-opportunity areas and brings opportunity to them – unlocking their potential all the way from school into top universities and careers.
Zero Gravity is packed with features designed to take talent to the top – from mentoring, masterclasses, internships and scholarships to personalised career opportunities. Our members get totally free access to a digital community of over 10,000 students, all working together to make their ambitions real.
The Zero Gravity community secures top results, doubling a student’s chances of winning a top uni offer and top career role. We’ve already boosted the cumulative lifetime earnings of students from low opportunity areas by £270m, and are set to create a £1bn boost by 2025.
We build strong values within each of our members. They become highly skilled candidates who scale our mission. By powering individual outcomes, we unlock the true potential of the nation – solving one of the UK’s biggest challenges.
Talent is spread evenly, opportunity is not. Zero Gravity is changing that.
Zero Gravity Scholarships
Outside of universities, we are one of the biggest scholarship providers for students from low-opportunity areas in the UK. We power hundreds of the UK's most talented students with £3,000 scholarships (£1,000 p/y) and game-changing career support. Where wealthier students have the professional networks of Mum and Dad; our scholars get the elite career opportunities offered by Zero Gravity. This accelerates their academic and career journeys, helping them land the future they didn't think possible.
Our scholarship product and funding model is ground-breaking and we are on our way to creating the most efficient and impactful system for deploying financial support to low-income students.
This year we want to become the largest scholarship provider to low-opportunity students in the UK and deploy more scholarships than ever before. As a Fundraising Lead, you’ll help us accelerate our fundraising from HNWs and institutional partners to deploy millions of £s to high-talent, low-opportunity students, powering them into futures they didn’t think possible.
- We are looking for an experienced fundraiser with 2-3+ years of experience.
- You’ll need a demonstrated and impressive track record at securing donations and smashing fundraising targets.
- You’ll need to be a dynamic self-starter, using your specific fundraising expertise to develop and execute a multi-channel fundraising strategy across High-Net-Worth Individuals, Trust and Foundations, and Corporates.
- To date, scholarships have been fundraised by a network of over 65 individual supporters. You’ll need to be an exceptional relationship builder, engaging these important stakeholders, and encouraging them to make multi-year contributions, all whilst ensuring a superb donor experience.
- We are ambitious. Since the first pilot cohort of 36 scholars three years ago, the number of scholarships we’ve deployed has grown 5x. You’ll need to be someone who always exceeds expectations and is relentlessly determined to deliver exceptional outcomes for Zero Gravity members and ultimately ensure the highest number of Zero Gravity Scholarships are deployed.
- Most importantly, you’ll need a passion for a cause that makes a real impact in creating a more equal playing field for high-talent, low-opportunity students as they go through university and into their graduate roles.
- Fundraising Target: We have an ambitious goal to raise £1 million in new funding by September 2024 to support at least 333 new scholars heading to university in September 2024. This will require building a sustainable pipeline of individual and institutional donors. Longer term, our strategy is to raise sufficient donations to fund 10% of all Zero Gravity members entering university each year.
- Donor Focus: The initial priority will be engaging high-net-worth Individuals and mass-affluent individual donors across the UK who can make major donations to Zero Gravity’s Scholarship Fund. This includes cultivating new prospective donors while managing existing supporters.
- Partnerships: There are also opportunities to secure corporate sponsorships, grants from foundations and trusts, and other institutional funding sources. Building partnerships will be key.
- Marketing Alignment: Working closely with our Brand and Marketing team, you will help maximise awareness and positive sentiment for the Zero Gravity Scholarship program within the education sector. This includes developing donor-centric communications and hosting networking events.
- Incredible Work - Be part of a mission-driven business that is transforming the lives of our users and disrupting the status quo
- Performance bonus - We reward top performance via our Zero Gravity bonus scheme, with bonuses of up to 40% of salary
- Share options - You can become a Zero Gravity shareholder via our 'ZERO GRAVITY FOR ALL' option scheme.
- Central London office - You'll work out of our beautiful Zero Gravity HQ in St Pauls, with flexible working options.
- Brand New MacBook - We'll equip you with the latest Apple hardware so you have the best tech to do your work.
- Zero Gravity Card - We’ll give you a Zero Gravity card loaded with £500pa to spend on learning and development.
- Fortnightly socials - Every fortnight we take our team out for dinner/drinks, completely on the house!
- Work worldwide week - Escape London with your laptop and work anywhere worldwide!
- Stand up straight - We say what we think and mean what we say. We’re straight talkers who hold ourselves and others to a high standard, owning our mistakes and always striving for improvement
- Run towards danger - We push ourselves to the limit and refuse to stand still. We embrace imposter syndrome by taking risks, failing fast, and venturing into the unknown. Because playing it safe ≠ progress
- Change it up - Innovation comes from challenging convention. So we say no to the status quo and constantly seek to disrupt our own thinking. Because the best ideas are often found in the strangest of places
- Make it happen - We focus on creating incredible results rather than obsessing over process. There’s an inherent drive in our work: a bias toward taking action, moving fast, and delivering what matters
