Working at The King's Fund

This content relates to the following topics:

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 our purpose and independence
  • we act with integrity
  • we are collaborative and inclusive
  • we are positive and engaged
  • we strive for excellence.

If you want to work for an organisation which is making a 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.

We are proud to be a Living Wage Employer

Salaries are competitively pitched for the charity sector and we're proud to be a Living Wage Employer. 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

Alex Baylis, Assistant Director of Policy

"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."

Chris Lazenby, Corporate Partnerships Account Manager

"I enjoy working with great colleagues, who strive for positive change through their work. I also really value working for an organisation that rewards its staff with development opportunities and great benefits. "

Durka Dougall, Senior Consultant, Leadership

"The King’s Fund is a great organisation that is full of talented people who care about improving the health and care system and making a difference to people’s lives - that’s important to me. This unique combination of expertise, pragmatism, challenge and support acts as a strong positive catalytic energy and one that can make all the difference in the current landscape."
