Working for Scott Bader

Scott Bader is unique.  We employ over 650 people globally (of whom over 300 are based in the UK). We are an independent, creative and reliable international business enterprise – ‘owned in common’ by all who work in it.  Our independence is ensured by our ownership with all the shares being held in charitable trust. 

We are structured to empower our people, so when you work for us, you have a democratic right to influence and make decisions on important issues that matter to you.

Ernest Bader, our founder, believed that a business should do more than just make a profit; it should be founded on ethical principles, be organised democratically and contribute to the good of the wider community.

The charitable trust, the Scott Bader Commonwealth Limited, distributes a proportion of our profits each year by making donations to charities which support economic and social development around the world.
