We’ve come a long way since we were founded back in 1961. And our huge progress is thanks in no small part to staff both past and present who have propelled us here. We’ve been involved in major breakthroughs; from stents and transplants to defibrillators and clot busting drugs. We’ve seen survival rates transformed and treatments revolutionised.
Everyone who works here lives our values every day: brave, informed, compassionate and driven. Because whatever role we are in, we share the same fearless commitment to sparing families the heartbreak of conditions like stroke, heart failure, atrial fibrillation and other heart diseases - conditions that currently kill 1 in 4 in the UK.
Heart and circulatory diseases do not discriminate and as much as we are committed to beat heartbreak for everyone, we are also committed to be an inclusive employer for everyone. We are proud that the diversity of our supporters is also reflected in the diversity of our workforce. Our equality and diversity agenda spans across our charity and we pride ourselves in being an inclusive employer who puts diversity at the heart of everything that we do.
The most important thing you need to know about working at the British Heart Foundation is that every single day is about protecting our mums and our dads, our brothers and sisters, our grandparents and our friends.

Mind supports people with mental illness in their recovery, to help them live well in the community, with or without symptoms. They work with people who have a range of often complex issues resulting from mental illness, and their families and carers, and have been doing this work for over 30 years in Victoria and now for more than four years in South Australia.
The journey people take to reclaim their lives when they have a mental illness or are homeless is a very personal process. Mind’s role in this journey is to encourage individual solutions that help people take control of their lives, foster self-belief and connect people with the community. Mind does this through a holistic approach that facilitates people to:
- Set goals and achieve them
- Manage their mental and physical health
- Develop a clearer sense of personal identity
- Develop trusting and supportive relationships
- Get back to work, school or tertiary studies
- Develop skills to live independently in the community
Mind sees recovery as a process which involves accepting, adapting and moving along pathways to participate more fully in the community. Recovery does not necessarily mean being symptom free or ‘cured’, but learning to come to terms with, manage and live well even in the presence of a mental illness. Mind has more than 93 programs across Victoria and South Australia, employing more than 550 staff and provides services to more than 4,000 people each year. They have proven expertise in the areas that they operate in and a solid reputation built over 30 years of delivering services.
