Job Title: Health Foundation Internships

(9 month fixed term contract). Full time (37.5 hours per week)
The Health Foundation is an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK. Our aim is a healthier population, supported by high quality health care that can be equitably accessed. From giving grants to those working at the front line to carrying out research and policy analysis, we shine a light on how to make successful change happen.
The programme offers an exciting opportunity for people who are enthusiastic about public policy including health policy or health care improvement and who want to learn more to join us for nine months. Interns will have the opportunity to work on a range of projects spanning a broad array of topic areas, as well as developing their research, analysis, project management and drafting skills.
There are three internships available, one each based in the Healthy Lives, Improvement and Quality teams. See the job description and application pack for more information about the teams in which you could be working.
These internships will suit recent graduates and/or those looking to build a career in public policy or health care improvement. They offer the opportunity to learn about health policy to support healthier lives and health care improvement as well as to develop core skills which are integral to these areas. In return, the interns will be expected to bring enthusiasm, curiosity and a flexible approach to their work. Interns will be encouraged to maximise the opportunities available to them to learn and develop their knowledge and skills during their time in post.
The interns will benefit from on the job experience and skills developed as a result of their project work at the Foundation.
