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 successful candidate will gain experience working with their team and colleagues across the organisation on projects spanning a wide range of topics, for example what works to support the implementation and spread of technology in the NHS, how NHS leadership and management can be improved or key priorities for NHS recovery. They will be supported to develop their research, analysis, project management and written and verbal communication skills. This is a development opportunity, and the intern will receive mentoring for the duration of the placement.
In return, the intern will be expected to bring enthusiasm, curiosity, and a flexible approach to their work. They will be encouraged to maximise the opportunities available to them to learn and develop their knowledge and skills during their time in post. They will also be encouraged to connect and share learning with interns in other teams across the Foundation. The successful candidate will be based in the Foundation’s Improvement team.
