Work for us

Working for the Jack Petchey Foundation isn’t quite the same as just ‘having a job’.

The Jack Petchey Foundation is a youth-focused grant maker located near Canary Wharf in the heart of London’s Docklands. Young people are at the centre of everything we do, and our values underpin our day to day work. The work we do really does make a difference to young people’s lives across London and Essex.

We have a dedicated, friendly workforce and enjoy a light, modern office with a spacious garden, fully equipped kitchen and table football and table tennis facilities!

We are committed to ensuring our staff have a good work-life balance and offer all our employees a comprehensive package of benefits including pension scheme, life insurance, childcare vouchers, private healthcare insurance with reduced cost gym membership and a cycle to work scheme.
