Join us in making dents in the world

Brink exists to make a real positive difference, at scale, on the big challenges that matter to the whole world: global education, health, climate change, digital transformation and Covid-19, to name a few. We’re privileged to work with innovators and motivated teams across some of the world’s leading governments, foundations and businesses and we’re proud to be a Certified B Corp. Our work is highly collaborative, fast-paced and global. And whilst it wins awards and is featured in the press, what really matters to us is getting to do the best work of our lives.

Being an organisation that takes on challenges with creativity and freshness in small tight teams, it gives me the opportunity to shape and lead my work independently but with support when I need it.

Review from Escape The City

We work a little differently

We know that to make dents in the world, we need to keep our own house in tip-top shape too. That’s why we’re proud to be a remote-first, global organisation, with a team of over 30 Brinksters from 13 nationalities currently living in 7 countries. Our ways of working won us a spot on Escape The City's top 100 workplaces to escape to in 2022 and in 2023! 🏖️

A give-get that goes way beyond perks

Every piece of work we do is fully open to creative, sideways solutions and tackles a global issue. Each is an opportunity to deepen our expertise in Behavioural Innovation and make a meaningful dent. We don’t split our time between “mundane bread and butter” and “exciting pro bono”. We think that’s quite unique. As a result of our approach, our portfolio of work is growing and so is our team.

Working at Brink has given me so many opportunities to stretch and grow as a practioner. This is highly valued within Brink and we're given both a learning & development budget, as well as, opportunities to be challenged through our work every day.

Review from Escape The City

We’re proud of the things we’re able to offer

A remote set up with autonomy over your time, support to set up your workstation and the opportunity to join our annual get togethers (we've spent time in Norfolk, Lincoln and London in the UK and Kigali in Rwanda!).

  • We care deeply about your wellbeing and vitality and offer a ‘take what you need’ annual leave policy, access to mental wellbeing platform Oliva, and 16 weeks’ parental leave.
  • A dynamic learning environment which plays to your strengths whilst challenging you to stretch and experiment in a safe space. You’ll get access to a personal coach, a Kindle loaded with the company library, and guided time every month to learn.
  • Diversity and inclusion is in our DNA from the make up of our team to the clients we work with. Our team includes 13 nationalities based in 7 countries and our work is truly global.
  • Exposure to some of the biggest challenges of our time and the opportunity to do career-defining work that creates meaningful impact.

What we value at Brink

Our values were created after hearing from each and every Brinkster at one of our retreats. We feel that they encompass how we approach every aspect of work at Brink. Here's what we value at Brink:

  • Courage
  • Generosity
  • Curiosity
  • Joy
  • Ubuntu

You’re a Brinkster if…

To help us on our mission we need a team made up of brilliant brains, from many backgrounds, viewpoints and passions.

You’re a Brinkster if you’re a low-ego, high-curiosity mind with a global outlook, and deep expertise in a technical area related to the role - from lean startup to service design to behavioural insights, we draw on many methods in our work and welcome practitioners from across them. There’s no one Brinkster in the team with the same background and experience - our team includes a former architect, pizza chef and nun (yes, really!). We truly value that diversity. Our work requires new thinking, the ability to challenge current ways of working and the drive to question how we can make things better.

I love working with my colleagues, every day I'm inspired by their smarts, kindness and wit. I have fun working with them and that's the best thing!

Review from Escape The City

We want to ensure that Brink is a diverse, equitable and inclusive organisation, and we celebrate differences across the team. We’re on a journey and learning how to do this best across Brink, but are set on building a culture where all Brinksters feel safe, supported, and able to bring their full selves to work. Regardless of your background, if you’re a hybrid thinker, and want to put your skills and experience to use making meaningful impact in the world, we’d love to hear from you.

We may not be a match if...

We know that our way of working may not be for everyone, and that’s okay. Our team works across 7 countries which means you may not see your team in-person for weeks (or even months). We do our best to create spaces for all our Brinksters to feel connected to one another but acknowledge that sometimes remote-first working just doesn’t work for people, and we want to be honest about that from the offset.

Our inbox is always open

We’re always interested in speculative applications from talented and curious practitioners. At Brink you will get the opportunity to work with designers, psychologists, business-builders, community conveners and thought-leaders, and consciously mix these talents for fresh approaches. It takes a mix of innovation methods and skills to take early ideas and evidence through to action and impact. That’s why we are building a team with a range of talents and practices to draw from.

Regardless of your background, if you’re a hybrid thinker, and want to put your skills and experience to use making meaningful impact in the world, we’d love to hear from you:
