We are an independent charitable organisation working to build a healthier UK

We are an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK.  The Healthy Lives directorate has an ambitious strategy to improve people’s health and reduce inequalities. To achieve this we are continuing to build our expertise in the economic and social factors that influence people’s health.

Health is our most precious asset. It is shaped by the work we do, the income we earn, the education we receive and the places and communities we live in. The context of the pandemic, the cost-of-living crisis and rising demand for services makes improving – or even sustaining – healthy life expectancy a real challenge.

Improving health and reducing inequalities requires a whole-society approach – we can’t do this alone. Our ambition is to create more favourable conditions that enable others to act. We want decision makers across all parts of society to understand and fulfil their potential contribution to building a healthy nation.

About the role:

One of our key objectives is to improve understanding of how business and investors influence health and catalyse action in the private sector. We do this by providing evidence and recommendations to influence policymakers, employers and businesses. This is supported by funding activity by other organisations to build evidence or take action to improve health and reduce inequalities.

The Policy Fellow will be key in helping us to influence employers, businesses and investors to support good health through inclusive economies, economic development and anchor action. Existing programmes are seeking to: understand how investors can help to improve health and reduce inequalities; improve health through economic development; inform business and employer action to improve health; and support effective action by anchor institutions through the Health Anchors Learning Network.

The role will also lead on delivering a new policy research contracting framework to commission rapid policy research and analysis on key live policy issues such as employment, welfare and local economic development.
