Work for us

We are a friendly and welcoming organisation based in London. See below for information about current vacancies, our internship schemes and staff benefits.

We are recruiting for a Programmes Officer in our Grants and Programmes team (£28,000 deadline 13 August) and A FORUM Policy Manager in our Medical Science Policy team (£37,000- £42,000 1 September). 

We are also recruiting the following roles into an expanding Communications and Engagement team at the Academy.


About the Communications and Engagement team: Our mission is to tell the story of the Academy and its work to improve health. We do this by providing a diverse, trusted and accessible voice for medical science in print, broadcast and digital media, and by putting patients and the public at the heart of our work.

These new roles offer opportunities to work on innovative engagement programmes like our Departure Lounge project which explored death and dying in a pop up shop, and our Planet DIVOC-91 comic that helped young adults share their view on the COVID-19 pandemic. They also offer opportunities to work on high profile communications campaigns connected to our influential policy reports and to support those working in medical and health research through digital activities like our #MedSciLife campaign. We’re also developing new programmes to connect researchers in universities, the NHS and companies across the UK with patients and the public at local and community levels to ensure medical research truly benefits all.


The Academy is committed to working towards full equality of opportunity both in our own organisation, practices and work, and the wider academic workforce. We encourage applications from all backgrounds. Please do get in touch if you have any questions about how we can support diversity and inclusion in these roles. You can see more information on our ED&I work here.

Location - Staff are currently working remotely. Access to desk space in the office is available, however we remain responsive to government announcements and restrictions. There is no expectation that staff will return to the office 5 days a week. Location of work will be set based on the needs of the individual and their role, however when in the office the location is 41 Portland Place, London W1B 1QH.

Information on our agile working approach, family friendly and wellbeing benefits are also available on the Academy website.
