How to apply


When you’ve found a vacancy that’s right for you, click apply and complete our online application form.

It’s quick and easy to apply for a role at the BHF. All you’ll need is an up-to-date CV and a supporting statement, outlining your interest in the role and how you meet the role’s criteria.

For our retail store applications, as well as your CV, we ask you to complete a questionnaire designed to test how you would respond to a variety of day-to-day situations in the role. You’ll need to allow about 20 minutes to complete it, but it is not timed.

As part of our commitment to be an inclusive employer and ensure fairness and consistency in selecting the best candidate for this role, the BHF will use anonymous CV software as part of the application journey.

Early application is encouraged as we will review applications throughout the advertising period and reserve the right to close the advert early.

We’ll send you an email to let you know your application has arrived safely. If you haven’t received an email from us, check your junk or spam mailbox. If there’s still no email it means we haven’t received your application and you should send it again.

We’ll always let you know whether you’ve been shortlisted or not. We receive a lot of applications, so unfortunately, we’re not able to give individual feedback if you’re not shortlisted

If you’re having problems applying online, please contact us on 0300 330 5473 or email [email protected]


If you’ve been shortlisted, we’ll contact you by email or telephone to arrange an interview.

We’ll let you know the format of your interview and whether it will be in person, over the phone, or over video call.

Depending on the role you’ve applied for, there may be an initial screening call, or video interview. As part of the process, we may ask you to complete a task, such as an unseen assessment or a presentation.

Many of our interviews and assessments are held virtually. We use Microsoft Teams for all virtual interviews. You can download the latest application or access Teams via your internet browser on your desktop or mobile device.

The interview process is our chance to get to know you and to hear more about your skills, knowledge, and experience. We’ll ask you to talk us through examples of where you have demonstrated specific competencies or behaviours. We want you to explain what appeals to you about the role and why you want to join the BHF.

The interview is also your opportunity to get a feel for the BHF, the team you’d be working in, and ask any questions you have about the role and about working here.

We’re not able to pay for candidates’ travel expenses so please bear this in mind before booking your interview. You can find our office locations here.

We offer feedback to all interviewed candidates.
