Digital Disruptors is a programme co-founded by our Chairman, Tina Judic, and PR Lead, Julie York. Set up in memory of Nicky McShane — one of the digital industry's most exuberant and progressive digital marketers — the programme is on a mission to encourage young people to investigate digital and the options it provides as a career choice. Now in its third year, the programme reaches young people of all backgrounds, aged between 13 and 19, providing them with an opportunity to learn about this exciting and fast-paced industry.

Helping support the community is a big part of Found’s mission. We have a huge desire to share our passion for learning and do this through training academies with universities, presentations at schools and partnering with charities. We work alongside our partnered charity, The Hebe Foundation, which supports young people in learning life and employment skills; through mentorship, work experience, workshops and more. Not to mention the various fundraisers we run throughout the year from Found Bake Off and quiz nights to marathon running and stand-up comedy. We've also partnered with Matchable, a platform that embeds social impact into businesses by matching them with innovative volunteering projects.
We understand that everyone’s idea of a development path is unique. We celebrate the fact that everyone has individual aspirations and goals so we ensure that all of our team members have a personalised development plan to help them acquire the skills they need for their future – no matter what their path. We harness our team members’ strengths and mould their roles around them for maximum effect.
Our team are the heartbeat of Found so we like to take care of them. Helping employees develop their careers is one thing we do. But work is just one aspect of their lives, so we support growth in other areas too. We place a big emphasis on mental health. This includes mental health first aid, workshops and regular well-being check-ins, plus resilience, emotional intelligence and energy management training – all the tools to help our employees grow as individuals. With access to a 24/7, 365 days a year support line, our team are always supported
