How to apply

A career with us is a chance to help protect our mums and dads, our brothers and sisters, our grandparents and friends. It’s a chance to stop heart and circulatory diseases killing 1 in 4 people in the UK. We want people who are not just brilliant in their field, but motivated by our cause and our values. If that sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.

And if you haven’t found the perfect role for yourself today, please register for job alerts so we can send you opportunities that match your skills and experience. By creating a profile on our job site, you’ll be all set to apply when the right vacancy opens. Or, you can login using your LinkedIn, Google+ or Facebook profile.


When you’ve found a vacancy that’s right for you, complete our online application and submit it with your CV (in Word, PDF or rich text format) and a supporting statement.

For retail 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.

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. Depending on the type of role you’ve applied for, we may ask you to complete an unseen assessment or to prepare a presentation. For some roles, there may be an initial interview over the phone or via video. For candidates who progress through this first stage, we will invite you to an in-person interview.

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

It’s our chance to get to know you and to hear more about the skills and experience that you’ve included in your application. We’ll also ask questions that require you to use your judgement, to demonstrate what you’ve found out about the BHF and to tell us why you want to join us.

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.

All candidates invited for interview will be asked to bring evidence of their right to work in the UK, i.e. passport and/or visa or other documentation that supports this, plus a clear copy. You will be notified of this at interview confirmation stage.
