We focus on four complex health issues more prevalent in urban areas
With the Social Progress Imperative, we've developed the first neighbourhood level, health-focused social progress index of its kind.
With Wellcome Trust
We want to hear from you.
Who we are
We set big ambitions, and recruit brilliant people to deliver them
As a member of the team, you have a real opportunity to shape our work and the impact we can have. This is fuelled by our desire to be more than the sum of our parts. We’re curious, we think big and we’re not afraid to take risks.
We’re a values-led organisation, driven by being enterprising, collaborative and delivery-minded.
Enterprising – looks at things from different angles, with willingness to experiment and test
Collaborative – gives time and attention to people and ideas, and motivates others
Delivery minded – is willing to get stuck in and takes ownership for results
We’re a Living Wage employer and support part-time roles and job shares. The team comes from diverse professional backgrounds, so exposure to different specialisms and experience is high. During the pandemic and beyond, working at Impact on Urban Health can involve remote working and other flexible working patterns.
Our office space is in Southwark. We work in an open and vibrant environment with agile working, collaborative spaces and a library. Our office space is fully wheelchair accessible and you can find more information on our building’s facilities and accessibility.
We also provide fresh fruit in the office, showers, cycle storage and lockers, weekly yoga and Pilates sessions and annual health checks. Our active social committee organises a range of activities in and out of the office, including bright ideas breakfasts and bowling nights.
We have a committed approach to learning and development, through generous individual development budgets, organisation-wide training, and peer-to-peer learning and coaching opportunities.
By working at Impact on Urban Health, you’ll have access to a generous benefits package including pension contributions up to 12% and a BUPA employee assistance programme.
As a health charity, we care about people’s wellbeing. We provide annual individual budgets for staff to spend on their health and wellbeing, from gym memberships to recipe books.
We are committed to becoming a more diverse and inclusive organisation. In 2019, we set out a clear agenda to embed this commitment into who we are, who we fund, and how we make decisions.
We appointed a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion lead and established a core working group to review our internal processes and systems that sit behind our work across the charity. Though we have more work to do, we have made practical changes to the way in which we work. You can read more about these changes on the diversity, equity and inclusion page on the Guy’s & St Thomas’ Foundation site.
