Carnegie UK

Carnegie UK is an endowed charitable foundation. Our purpose is to improve the wellbeing of people in the UK and Ireland. For us, wellbeing means everybody having what they need to live together well, now and in the future. We believe collective wellbeing happens when social, economic, environmental and democratic wellbeing outcomes are seen as being equally important and are given equal weight. In 2021, we launched our Strategy For Change, setting out our vision and strategic priorities for the coming years. 

We work in ways that reflect our organisational values. 

Carnegie UK is strongly committed to encouraging and supporting a diverse workforce. We seek to provide equal opportunities to all current and prospective employees regardless of age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, gender identity, or marriage and civil partnership.

We want to improve our practice and understanding in relation to diversity, equity, and inclusion and have prioritised this in our organisational development. We take positive steps to ensure that our employees can thrive and the workplace is equitable and free from discrimination. 

We especially welcome applications from all in the community who can contribute to the further diversification of experiences, ideas and perspectives.
