Matchable is a B2B platform changing the way companies do business by embedding social impact into business-as-usual-practises.
Our unique approach reimagines volunteering by offering employees unique upskilling opportunities working with exciting non-profits and impact startups (think using your skills to help disadvantaged farmers in Colombia become cacao entrepreneurs using blockchain… instead of painting a fence on your team volunteer day!).
Matchable is a London-based Tech for Good startup disrupting the old school way of employee volunteering. We raised our pre-seed round in early 2021 so we're at an exciting stage of growth!Our approach reimagines volunteering. Our B2B platform matches employees with unique skills-based volunteering opportunities at exciting non-profits (charities and social enterprises) and impact startups. We’ve experienced fantastic traction since launch in 2019 and are currently onboarding some of the UK’s biggest and most innovative companies, with the aim of delivering over £420m of value via 600,000 hours to organisations changing the world over the next 5 years.We've just launched the next version of our platform and are excited to be taking Matchable to the next level by scaling our client base, becoming a brand recognised for the quality of our projects, the quality of our service and our game-changing work!
Flexible working approach
Our general policy is that it doesn't matter where or when you're working as long as you get your work done.
Location: We have offices in Victoria but have been wfh during the pandemic, and going forward will encourage the team to work how they prefer, with flex to come into the office if it's more productive or for specific team socials / brainstorming sessions etc.
Working hours: We encourage the team to work when works for them as that's when they're at their most productive! Some of the team are real early birds and will start at 6am and finish early afternoon. Others start later and take a break for lunch. We want you to be able to balance life and work.
Other flex / benefits: Pets can be brought to the office, we have therapy on demand from Spill, employee benefits that are centred around wellness and mental health from Juno, book club, monthly team socials which is followed by a monthly team day off where we close the office for everyone to get a break! We have unlimited holidays and encourage the team to take at least 25 days per year, with this also being a KPI!
Scoring against our flexibility index (1 = not at all flexible, 100 = couldn’t be more flexible, 51 is average) using a number of parameters to assess flexibility such as working from home, hours, frequency of travel, benefits, etc.
Employee benchmarking score
Scoring against our employee perception index (1 = not seen as flexible, 100 = couldn’t be happier with the flexibility, 51 is average) using a number of more emotional / perception based questions to understand whether employees feel supported and offered what they want. The areas we cover are work-life balance / managerial support / flexible benefits / working environment / and many others.
I am currently working part-time and Matchable has been amazingly flexible with my schedule - I get to work any time from anywhere, I am trusted to get my work done by the deadline, no questions asked. I feel extremely lucky to have this opportunity!

What do we think of Matchable?
After speaking with the founder of Matchable; Wai Foong Ng, it was very clear to me that she had thought of her employees wellbeing from the very beginning. She's a prime example of how the modern founder should be looking towards their workforce, as important and as valuable as the deliverable product itself. Her continuous introduction of flexible benefits through different avenues continues to grow, from the type of office, the WFH options, the book club, the therapy provider, and more. It is facilitating an environment where employees can be the best version of themselves and connect more closely as a team to produce the best outcomes.
