About us

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK-based educational charity that works to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. We want more people to be able to harness digital technologies for work, to solve problems that matter to them, and to express themselves creatively.

Established in 2008 and first known for our product — the wildly successful Raspberry Pi computer — the Foundation has developed educational content and programmes that are helping millions of people learn new skills.

In October 2015 we merged with Code Club, followed in May 2017 by a second merger with the CoderDojo Foundation. Together we now represent one of the largest sustained global efforts to help young people learn computing and digital making. You can read more about our mission, values, and goals in our 2018–2020 strategy.

The role

Following an internal promotion, we are looking to recruit a Code Club Regional Coordinator who will be responsible for expanding our community of clubs and volunteers in South East England. This is a diverse role that involves grassroots community management, organising and running various types of events, and developing and nurturing relationships with a variety of partners and stakeholders.

You should bring experience in building volunteer communities and organising small-scale events, and since this position is part of a remote team, you should be comfortable working independently. You need a track record of building and maintaining professional partnerships, and you should also have excellent written and verbal communication skills. The ideal candidate will be an active member of the digital making community and have practical knowledge of computing education.

While we expect you to come with an impressive track record, you will be joining a fast-growing non-profit organisation that offers unparalleled opportunities for development and growth. We pride ourselves on being a brilliant place to work, with a fantastic team and a positive work culture. If you think you could make a contribution, we’d love to hear from you.
