Work With Us

The Jacobs Foundation invests in the future of young people. We aim to ensure that all children have access to opportunities for positive development and the best education possible that enables them to thrive.

Our work is structured around three interwoven portfolios: Learning Minds, Learning Schools, and Learning Societies. We support brilliant minds, purposefully bringing them together in cross-sector collaborations to drive new ideas about child development and human learning. We support schools, producing valuable insights and sharing best practices they need to excel. We promote evidence-informed decision-making in public policy and corporate practices to generate system change.

We foster relationships by recruiting, developing, and retaining professionals and talents from within our network and beyond. The Jacobs Foundation promotes equal opportunities. We consider all qualified applicants without restriction regarding origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age or other characteristics. We also welcome applications from qualified persons currently being in Switzerland under the protection status ‘S’.

We are looking for curious, creative, experienced individuals from around the world to join us at Jacobs Haus in Zurich. Our small team is full of experts passionate about investing in the future of young people.
