December 31, 2021

Are you an experienced sales person or in education or children’s services and looking for a new challenge? Do you want to work for a multi-award winning social tech business and make a positive impact on the most vulnerable children in society?

At Mind Of My Own our ambition is for all children’s voices to be heard and we carefully co-produce all our apps with children. This is why Mind Of My Own is the trusted apps for children’s services. We believe that every child is able to have a say, so we create fully accessible apps that provide a unique digital solution to advancing universal children’s rights.

Our apps are a smart way to receive organic, uncontrived and authentic feedback to help keep children safe and support their wellbeing. 


Mind Of My Own has been named as one of Escape the City’s Top 100 companies to work for in 2021 – proudly achieving a 10/10 score from our current team.

It’s a fantastic culture at Mind Of My Own – everyone is driven, focussed, friendly and passionate about doing good work. There are lots of opportunities to get involved in all areas of the business and by fully adopting remote, flexible working, there’s a genuine focus on supporting employee wellbeing. I felt immediately at home and part of a welcoming, growing team!
