About us


One Heart, One Team

Looking for a rewarding career in heart health? Join our passionate team at the Heart Foundation to help save Australian hearts.

The Heart Foundation is committed to improving the heart outcomes and health inequalities of Australians. Our team of welcoming, supportive and passionate people work together to deliver our strategy and purpose.

Every individual is empowered to make an impactful difference through challenging and meaningful work.

Our values 

Our values represent how we have evolved, and how we wish to continue working into the future. They guide the way we work together.

Stronger together

We believe in the power of unity, as we are strongest when we work together. We support each other so we all feel appreciated, by showing respect, leveraging diverse backgrounds, talents, perspectives, and resources.

Make a difference 

We are proud of our history and our achievements; we use our past successes to guide the future. We work with evidence to be a trusted voice on heart health – when the evidence changes, we change with it.

Change the future

We are courageous and think big, but we don’t ignore the details. We promote creativity and innovation in our thinking and actions to continually increase our reach and impact.

Build connections

We build genuine connections with our community, stakeholders, partners and customers.  We strongly believe that what we do every day is for the benefit of others.

Act with integrity

We are honest and take responsibility for our actions. We value the opinions of others and always assume positive intent. We enhance our trusted reputation through the responsible and transparent use of donor funds.

Our culture

People are at the heart of all we do. The Heart Foundation recognises everyone as more than just an employee and provides a workplace that helps manage work-life balance.

As a team, we’re accountable, empowered, integrated and community-focused. By joining us, you’ll be working towards a better future for all Australian hearts.

Wellness in the workplace

We are committed to fostering a workplace culture that prioritises the wellness of our employees. We strive to create an environment that supports physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. We do this through:

  • Encouraging open communication channels
  • Continuous engagement and improvement
  • Providing opportunities for people to thrive personally and professionally
  • A strong commitment to flexible working
  • A commitment to healthier catering

Employee wellbeing

Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) supports you and your immediate family with free access to confidential counselling 24/7 and an app with helpful resources.

Our strategy

The Heart Foundation is developing a 25-year vision; this initiative is known as Vision 2050. Coronary heart disease remains the leading cause of death in Australia — accounting for over 17,000 deaths each year.
