Working at Impact on Urban Health

We set big ambitions, and recruit brilliant people to deliver them

Purpose

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.

 

Values

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

Diversity, equity and inclusion

We are committed to becoming a more diverse and inclusive organisation. We are part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity, which 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 in the Charity’s annual report.

What diversity and inclusion mean to us:

Diversity

Recognising and taking account of everything that makes us unique as an individual. It is not just the categories that are protected by law. It is our backgrounds, the way we live, our personality types, our ways of thinking and the variety of our perspectives. To us, diversity describes the positive value of the rich tapestry of experience which helps us to look at things from different angles to make an impact in the communities in which we operate.

Inclusion

We embrace, celebrate and value difference within the workplace. It means that our organisational effort and practices ensure we remove barriers so that all groups or individuals are culturally and socially welcomed and valued equally.
