Work with us

 

In 2007 a renegade unit was formed; they escaped from regular every day jobs and set up base across the south west of England. Ten years on, wanted by Government Departments, national funding bodies, the public sector, schools and corporate clients, they survive today as innovators, pioneers and social entrepreneurs.

If you have a calling, if no other employer feels right, and if you have what we’re looking for, maybe you should join the RIO team…

As you might have guessed, at RIO we do business differently; we’re not your usual bunch of weary co-workers dutifully shuffling paperwork and clockwatching till 5pm. We’re an energetic, passionate and creative team; our hands are always getting dirty delivering real change for people and communities, and our collective fingers are in a broad range of pies – from education, regeneration and transforming public services, to supporting new business start-ups and even baking bread.

We deliver strategic contracts, we run our own projects and we use our skills and knowledge to help other folk do the same. The work is broad and varied, so you’ll never get bored!

We firmly believe in using our powers for good and addressing social problems; finding solutions that are co-designed and co-produced by the people we work with.

If this sounds like a bit of you then explore any job opportunities below (if we have any you’ll find them here) or, if we’re not advertising any vacancies right now, feel free to get in touch via email info@realideas.org or call us on 08458 621288 to see when we’re next recruiting.
