what we do


CIFF is the world’s largest philanthropy that focuses specifically on improving children’s lives.

From exploitation and education, to health and climate change, we give grants of circa $240m annually to take on the world’s biggest issues, transforming the lives of millions of children.

What makes CIFF so unique is the freedom we have to take risks and push boundaries. We get results by being rigorous and evidence-based. By scaling up. By thinking commercially. And by being bold, collaborative and relentlessly determined at every step.

At CIFF, we have the right resources and the right approach to solve the world’s biggest problems. Now, as we grow, we need to continue to find the right people. Could you be one of them?

the ciff way


At CIFF, we have incredibly high expectations of ourselves, of the programmes we invest in and of the impacts they’ll have.

It’s often fast-paced and pressured, but it’s also a lot of fun.

Yes, we’re rigorous in our approach, and yes, we work hard, but it’s the kind of high-energy, dynamic environment that’s always buzzing.

Join CIFF and you’ll find yourself working alongside teams of fascinating experts to make the biggest difference to children in the most efficient and scalable way possible.

One team

The kinds of large-scale changes we create can’t be achieved by working alone or in silos. So we work together at every opportunity. We learn from each other and support each other to succeed, each of us sharing our own unique insight to help push boundaries and achieve more.

It’s inspiring. It’s motivating. It’s joining forces to achieve a single purpose.

a diverse team of experts


At CIFF, we’re ambitious, we’re passionate and we’re world experts in our fields.

One of our greatest strengths is our sheer diversity: sit in one of our meetings and you’ll be surrounded by people from across the globe who’ve worked at FTSE 100 companies, government agencies, multi-national companies, charities…each of them bringing their unique experiences and insights to the table.

Being a CIFF person is about how you think. We’re bold. We’re entrepreneurial. We’re hard working. We’re always focused on how to do more and push boundaries. CIFF is challenging, but it’s also supportive – tell somebody you’ve got an idea and they’ll immediately start thinking about how they can help.

Is it hard work? Yes. But it's also exceptionally motivating, which can help take your career from strength to strength.
