One Heart, One Team

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: One Heart, One Team.

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

Our team 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 togetherWe 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 connectionsWe 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 integrityWe 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 the 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 

Our staff wellness program supports multiple aspects of wellbeing and encourages a healthy lifestyle. 

Thrive at the Heart Foundation 

Thrive is our staff wellness program. It takes a holistic approach, covering physical, mental, social and financial wellbeing, and an overall healthy lifestyle.  

A healthy lifestyle at work 

At the Heart Foundation, we promote a culture of health with walking programs, walking meetings and a healthy catering policy. 

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.
