Becoming part of the Peopleís Postcode Lottery team!

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a forward-thinking, dynamic organisation where we understand that people are our greatest asset. Perhaps that’s why our team voted us one of the Sunday Times Top 100 medium sized companies to work for in 2019! Our core values are fun, sharing, courageous and sustainable which are reflected in everything we do.  

We recognise and reward hard work and performance, offering a variety of benefits and career progression opportunities. This includes a generous pension and private healthcare scheme, an above average holiday allowance, discounted gym membership and fresh fruit in the office! We encourage you to spend two days each year volunteering with our charity partners and we are committed to investing 4% of salaries into training each year.  

What do we do?

As one of the world’s top fundraising private charity donors, giving back to good causes is our mission. We manage multiple society lotteries promoted by different charities supporting a wide range of causes. Since 2005, our players have raised more than £500 million for over 7,500 charities and good causes across Great Britain and internationally.
