Work for us

"Pratham's impact on the lives of millions of kids has been tremendous; it is quite simply an exceptional, best-in-class organisation that has managed to scale across India."

2019 Nobel Economics Laureate Abhijit Banerjee

Working for Pratham UK

Pratham is one of the largest and most respected education charities in India. We developed a model that can teach a child to read and do basic maths in as little as 30 days for £14. We also have preschool, vocational and women's education programmes. 

We have strong support from the UK Indian diaspora and are in a period of significant growth, having tripled in size in three years. We now raise £1.5m a year and are ambitious to at least triple again. 

While you will work in a small, fully remote team daily, you will be part of the global Pratham network. The team in India has over 6,000 staff, and they raise $28m locally. Pratham USA has 14 chapters and produces around 12 galas annually, contributing to its $30m income. We have recently launched Pratham International, and we will work with them to reach more children worldwide in the years ahead.

Current opportunities

The board of Pratham UK have approved two new posts as we continue to grow the charity's impact and income.

Special Events Manager

Full time £38,500 + You will also receive £26 a month tax-free home working allowance.

4 days could be considered. Fully remote but within easy reach of London

Closes 23:59 on 4th June

You will support this year's gala, Pratham's flagship event, before taking the lead next year. You will also be responsible for a number of smaller stewardship and cultivation events as we build out our Major Donor, Corporate, and Grants partnerships.

We are a small team, and whilst an events person is vital for our development if someone wanted to get involved in other fundraising streams, particularly corporate or major donors, we would be delighted to read about it in your application and discuss it at the interview or in a call before the interview—which are welcomed.

All current staff have visited India to see the programmes, and whilst we can't guarantee you a visit as we grow, it remains an ambition. We can offer a level of flexibility on hours, we'd consider someone four days a week, but flexibility and some extra (paid) days might be required around the gala time. 

Please see the full job pack for more details on the role and how to apply.

Salesforce, Administration and Supporter Care Officer

25 hours over four or (ideally) five days - £25,000 pro rata (£17,857). You will also receive £26 pro rata (£18.57) a month tax-free home working allowance. (fully remote)

Closes 23:59 on 28th May - note we have moved this forward.

This role will help our small team become comfortable with Salesforce and tweak the setup and reports so they’re part of what we do. You will also be the first line of supporter care, being the first point of contact when people email or phone us. You will supercharge the supporter experience and ensure everyone who supports Pratham feels appreciated. Finally, you will support us with some of the charity's administration, both for routine processes and ad hoc tasks.

All current staff have visited India to see the programmes, and whilst we can't guarantee all staff a visit as we grow, it remains an ambition. We can offer some flexibility on hours and when they are worked. 

You can read more in the job pack and see how to apply. We will not shortlist anybody who hasn't got either a Salesforce Admin qualification or significant experience using it.

We fully subscribe to the Non-Grads Welcome and Show the Salary campaigns and share interview questions in advance.

We are not able to sponsor work permits for any candidates.
