Career development

When you join the BHF we want you to feel valued every day. You'll be empowered to develop your knowledge and skills and encouraged to be ambitious in reaching for the next challenge.

We want you to succeed, and will strive to provide all the tools, support and exciting opportunities you need to do the best work of your life. A vital part of this is by asking you to play a proactive role in your own development, and immerse yourself in BHF’s culture of continual improvement, curiosity and collaboration.

You'll be supported to create a personal development plan, mapping out your aims and aspirations for personal growth. Then we’ll help you to go for it.

The learning and development opportunities we offer include:


Everyone starts learning from day one. We’ll support you through a comprehensive and informative induction to understand the work of the BHF and how your role is vital.


Various leadership and personal development courses and programmes are on offer through different approaches including digital, face-to-face and virtual training.
