Our ethos is simple and our goal is clear, we are creating the future of volunteering in the NHS.

To do this, we need bright enthusiastic people to join our team and contribute to the growing social movement of people who believe volunteers can make a real difference to staff, patients, and communities.

We welcome volunteers and students looking to gain work experience; simply send us an email and tell us about yourself.

We do not currently have any vacancies, but please check in again soon!

We value everyone who works at Helpforce, their skills, experience, and passion. And we believe in rewarding good work, developing our people through training & mentoring, and helping create future leaders for this sector.

Be the Helpforce

We are a tightly knit team, passionate about creating a step change in volunteering within the NHS. With a strong work ethic and a sense of fun, we support each other to work hard and achieve our ambitions. With a flexible culture we work wherever we are, at home, hot desking in our office, or on the train as we visit our partners across the NHS.

We can all be the Helpforce, to me it means believing in change and making it happen. That’s why I love working for Helpforce, we are really making a difference.

Many organisations talk about flexible working hours, Helpforce truly delivers on this and enables me to be part of a great team at work, while achieving a work-life balance I’ve never managed in a role before.
