The King's Fund is a stimulating, innovative and friendly place to work. We’re a group of dedicated people who work hard to help make our vision – that the best possible health and care is available to all – a reality.
Our work and values
We work across a range of disciplines, including research and policy analysis, leadership and organisational development, communications and information services, ICT, finance, and facilities management.
Our values underpin all that we do:
- we are committed to maintaining our independence
- we are collaborative and supportive
- we are positive and engaged
- we strive for excellence
- we act with integrity.
If you want to work for an organisation which is making difference to how health care is being delivered and developed, and where an excellent reputation and good colleagues consistently top staff satisfaction polls, then take a look at our current jobs.
We actively support the development of our people and are committed to being a learning organisation, supporting staff to learn and develop both within the Fund and outside of it.
Salaries are competitively pitched for the charity sector, and this is enhanced by an occupational pension scheme and generous holiday entitlements. The Green House café is a popular place to meet colleagues, and staff benefit from a daily discount of £3 on the wide range of food and refreshments on offer.
As a health charity, health and wellbeing is important to us – we provide an occupational health service that offers free flu jabs and well-person screening, on-site gym facilities, a confidential counselling service and a range of policies which support flexible working. We’re also a friendly bunch, holding frequent social events throughout the year.
Our location in the heart of London’s West End is another perk – we are minutes away from Oxford Circus tube station and enjoy easy access to shops, parks, theatres and restaurants.
What our colleagues say
"I really enjoy working in a highly respected organisation, with friendly and encouraging colleagues and where my personal development is supported."
"I know from friends in the NHS that our reports can have a real impact, both for leaders and on the front line – for me that’s one of the most important things about working here. Also, the friendliness of an organisation that’s small and sociable enough to know everyone."
"My role straddles the boundary between research and practice, ensuring the work we do is evidence-based and relevant to people working in the system. The diverse team I work with is perhaps the thing I value most, and what makes working here a real joy."
"I really value working with people who are so dedicated to doing great work. People here are constantly looking at how to improve on what we do, which makes it a stimulating and interesting place to work. The benefits are also great!"
