You’ll wear many hats and juggle competing demands. You’ll get the best out of our clients as well as our team of designers and developers to improve the digital offerings of our clients.

We especially encourage applications from women, disabled and people from ethnic minority backgrounds, as these groups are underrepresented throughout the technology industry.

What we offer


Other benefits include a training budget, pension scheme, 10am start to the day, and drinks on Wednesdays (because hump day).

About Fat Beehive

We are a small team of about 30 who, when not working from home, work in relaxed, informal offices in a converted warehouse in Borough (London) and Ancoats (Manchester). There is often cake. There is often music playing. We don’t have a ping pong table, table football or an office dog (although we do Borrow My Doggy and get regular visitors!).

Fat Beehive is dedicated to providing a friendly, relaxed, safe, fulfilling and fair work environment – see what it’s like. We want to create an environment where people want to come to work – one that engages them to give their best.

We’ve all chosen to work in the charity design sector because we want to help bring about positive social change – and we know that starts with us as individuals. We’re always challenging ourselves to work in a way that puts awareness of power, diversity and inclusivity at its heart.

We don’t work for oil, mining, arms, banking and sweatshops. But we do work for charities that challenge these and more. Come join us.
