We rely on strong performance management and effective planning. And we rely on a first rate finance, governance and strategy team that includes lawyers, accountants, analysts, planners and auditors working together.

We look for enthusiastic, diligent people who can demonstrate a thorough approach and an interest in applying their skills to make a difference. In return, we guarantee a proactive approach to your career and personal development, and the reward that comes from meeting people who have directly benefited from our life saving research.

Being in this team means benefitting from experience in a large and complex organisation with an annual income of over £300 million. Our scale provides huge opportunities for progression and we are utterly committed to the professional development of our people.

What the team say

  • RoshanFinance Business Partner

    What do you do?

    As an FBP, my role is to provide support on financial matters to senior leaders across a number of Directorates, whilst being a critical friend. My support ranges from investment appraisals of projects and financial planning to strategic reviews.

    What do you enjoy most about your role?

    The interaction with colleagues to help improve financial understanding and mitigate financial risks, as well as learning about their business objectives and supporting their delivery.

    What are the best things about being part of the BHF?

    The passion and determination demonstrated by colleagues to promote our cause, whilst the BHF’s investment in learning and development is remarkable.

  • ClaireStrategy Analyst, BHF Strategy Unit

    What attracted you to the BHF?

    I used to be a cardiovascular researcher, so I knew all about the BHF. When I decided to leave academic research I was very keen to continue to work for people with heart disease, and the BHF seemed the perfect choice.

    What does the Strategy Unit do?

    We work with colleagues across the charity to help shape the overall direction of travel for the charity, and to ensure that we are on track to deliver our long-term objectives. We also support and develop strategic projects for the BHF, to help the charity respond to threats and opportunities in the internal and external environment.

    What inspires you in your working life?

    Learning about the medical advancements that have come from BHF research - and have directly benefited a number of people close to me - is immensely gratifying.

  • RichardLegal Counsel, Chief Executive’s Office

    What do you do?

    I am a lawyer for the BHF and so I advise the organisation on a wide range of legal matters, but mainly focus on commercial, corporate and employment issues. I also act as Legal Business Partner for the Marketing and Engagement team, advising them on strategic matters as well as day to day legal queries.

    Would you recommend the BHF to other lawyers?

    Absolutely! Every day you’ll be involved in different projects, and your advice will have a direct impact, often at a senior level. Our expertise helps to shape the organisation and make us more efficient, meaning we can spend even more of our funds on life saving research.

    Three words to describe working life at the BHF?

    Motivational. Inspirational. Challenging.
