We're the British Heart Foundation and we fund research to keep hearts beating and blood flowing.
Our vision is a world without heart and circulatory diseases. A world without the heartbreak that they cause.
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.
Together, we can beat heartbreak forever. – less
