The Sutton Trust was founded by Sir Peter Lampl in 1997. The son of a Viennese émigré who came to Britain in the 1930s, Peter attended grammar school and went on to study at the University of Oxford. After a successful career in private equity, Peter set up the the Sutton Trust in 1997 and ran its first summer school in partnership with the University of Oxford.
Since then, we’ve worked with over 50,000+ young people through our various programmes, published 250+ pieces of agenda setting research and had 30+ substantial policy influences. Our work has put social mobility firmly on the map and established the Sutton Trust as a leading organisation in the social mobility space in the UK.
“The Trust is committed to ensuring equality of opportunity and that all applicants receive equal consideration for employment. We strongly encourage individuals from all backgrounds, including those underrepresented at present at the Trust, to apply for this role and recognise the value that diversity brings to our work.”
27 days per annum plus bank holidays (29 days per annum for roles at 'Head of' level and above).
Contributory pension scheme (subject to the conditions of the scheme) which includes a 6% employer pension contribution.
Social mobility in Britain is low. The educational opportunities and life chances of a child born today are strongly linked to their parents’ socio-economic background. We fight for social mobility from birth to the workplace so that every young person – no matter who their parents are, what school they go to, or where they live – has the chance to succeed in life.
