IFOW's mission is to shape a fairer future through better work. Our goal is a good society in which everyone can flourish through this new technological revolution, and our belief is that creating and sustaining good work is the best way to achieve this goal and ensure that innovation and social good advance together.
We believe ‘good work’ can be an outcome of technological change, if, and when: government prioritises and creates; regulators steer and intervene; industry develops and models; civil society is engaged and informs; academia carries out research; and industry prioritises and requires.

We are seeking a Comms and Events Associate working at 0.5 FTE who can accelerate this goal, shaping a growing organisation to clearly demonstrate its significant impact.
