National Numeracy is a young and rapidly growing organisation based in Brighton. Join us.
We are on a mission to empower children and adults in the UK to get on with numbers so they can fulfil their potential at work, home and school. Our work improves how people understand and work with numbers in everyday life, sparking better opportunities and brighter futures.
The issue: Numeracy levels in the UK are significantly below the average for developed countries: nearly half the working age population (49%) has the expected numeracy level of a primary school child. And it costs the UK economy a staggering £25 billion a year.
Enabling social mobility:
Basic number skills and confidence provide a gateway to financial inclusion, wellbeing and employment prospects. Without number confidence and skills, people are locked out of many life opportunities. And it’s a problem handed from one generation to the next.
Enabling a fairer society:
Poor numeracy blights lives and livelihoods, and contributes to pervasive problems from unemployment to poor health and debt. At National Numeracy we focus our support on disadvantaged individuals and communities most in-need, where we can have the greatest impact.
Our diversity: Our stakeholders have different backgrounds and experiences, and we are committed to having a diverse team who can bring their experiences from work and home into this role. Therefore, we actively encourage applicants from Black, Asian or minority ethnic groups, LGBTQ+ people and people with disabilities to apply for all of our roles.
Among the benefits we offer are:
- Competitive salaries
- 33 days’ holiday a year including bank holidays
- Company pension scheme
- Flexible approach to office/hybrid/remote working
