We are a growing organisation and we are regularly on the look out for new recruits to join our teams around the world. If you are interested in hearing about vacancies that open up in the future, please subscribe to Forum for the Future's job alerts.

    Equal Opportunities

    We use Applied as part of our recruitment process.  Applied collects some standard equal opportunities data on applicants’ gender, age, ethnicity, disability status, sexual orientation and socioeconomic status. 

    Forum for the Future wholeheartedly supports the principle of equal opportunities in employment. We promote and support equality, diversity and inclusion both in our own workplace and through our work with our partners and the wider public.  We actively support and promote diversity as an essential component of sustainability, and as a key element of our organisational values.  We oppose all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination on the grounds of colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, age, disability, caste, religion or belief. We encourage applications from under-represented groups, including those who identify as disabled, LGBTQ, ethnic minorities, and come from diverse social and educational backgrounds. For more information on what personal data we collect and why, please read our Privacy Policy.

    Learning through internships

    At this time, we do not accept unsolicited applications for internships. However, we may consider recruiting interns on a project-by-project basis when there is a specific need for acquiring an intern. Find out more information on internships here.

    Why work with us?

    There is a lot more to working at Forum than a nine-to-five office job. You will be joining a global organisation that brings together people from various backgrounds who are committed to addressing critical global challenges facing the world today. We convene transformational collaborations to drive change by partnering with organisations to help them lead by example and by building a global community of pioneers and change makers.

    In our four offices – London, New York, Mumbai and Singapore - we offer a dynamic, creative and networked place of work among fantastic colleagues and with some great benefits.

    • Our benefits. We offer generous annual leave/vacation, sick leave and pay, and family leave provisions. Our staff have retirement provisions and are included in a life insurance policy. Staff in APAC and the US have medical insurance cover. We also offer sabbaticals for staff with accrued length of service. In our London office, staff can benefit from cycle to work scheme and interest free season travel card loan.
    • Our approach to your development. We regularly hold in-house learning opportunities to develop employees’ core skills and learn about our work from each other, and annual away days, when the whole organisation meets to build on our strategy, share knowledge and renew our common commitment. Forum offers a unique benefit of using the inspiration space which is meant to create some clear space for learning and thinking in addition to the learning days, brown bag lunches and other more formal training provided by Forum. All our staff participate in the annual performance appraisal cycle and are offered 360 degree feedback on their performance. There are opportunities to progress within Forum based on performance and career aspirations. 
    • Our flexibility. We recognise the value of staff having a healthy balance between home and work life, and we actively support and promote flexible working. We try to accommodate any request to work part-time, work at home, or work flexible hours, as long as it is operationally feasible. We offer time off to care for dependents to deal with emergencies and on compassionate grounds.
    • Our values. We make a real effort to live by our values. We are courageous, adaptive, empathetic, inquisitive, playful and respectful. These values help build our common culture, shape our shared purpose and guide us in all actions and decisions. We are also committed to the successful development of an equal opportunities policy, and invite applicants to complete an equal opportunities form to help us implement and monitor it. Read more about them here. 
    • Your wellbeing. In addition to regular manager-staff check-ins and pastoral care support, all staff have access to independent, free and confidential employee assistance advice (EAP) and, if necessary counselling, on a range of issues, including personal relationships, finances, childcare or work-related issues.
