We're pleased to be working with no.10 Innovation Fellowships Programme to support their search for the next fellows to join the 2021 cohort. They're seeking the best digital and tech talent in the industry so we want to connect our members with this exciting career opportunity.

"Are you a digital and tech leader passionate about using cutting-edge technologies and approaches to create positive change in society?"

You can apply to be a No.10 Innovation Fellow for the fantastic opportunity to work on some of the UK’s most important public sector challenges. The scheme is aiming to hire a diverse group of Fellows. If you're successful, you'll be working closely with senior leaders in departments and help build strong relationships.

And if you'd like to hear more about the Innovation Fellowships Programme, join our Ada's List coffee morning on 25th March, when we'll be chatting to some members of the programme/hiring committee who can tell you more about the cohort and what you can expect. Sign up to our next coffee morning to take part in this conversation.

"The No.10 Innovation Fellowships programme is a fantastic opportunity to make a big impact in government.  We're looking for 10 fellows to work on interesting challenges like including the use of digital services in education to designing high-impact data solutions in the fight against COVID-19.

As an Adas list member, I know personally how talented this community is and I know there are people with expertise in many areas from data to product. It's a programme where you can have societal impact but also as part of the cohort you will get 20% time for learning, networking and working with other fellows on projects.

It's the first time we are running a programme like this and it's been inspired by the Presidential Innovation Fellowship from the USA.  It would be amazing to receive applications for Adas List members!" - Arfah Farooq, Number.10 Innovation Fellowship Programme Lead.
