Working at Wellcome

Wellcome is a member of the Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion (ENEI).

Our central London offices offer good access for those with a disability and we are committed to supporting disabled applicants and members of staff.

We also advertise all our vacancies on the Diversity Jobs website.

We're committed to doing as much as we can to support applicants who have disabilities. Please contact Sonia Matthew on +44 (0)20 7611 8821 or Tracey Wickham on +44 (0)20 7611 8593 to let us know of any adjustments we can make to help you during the application process.

If you're an applicant from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, please be aware that we're bound by legal restrictions that affect our ability to employ non-EEA nationals in the UK.

This legislation requires us to view evidence of the successful candidate's eligibility to work in the UK before confirming any offer of employment.

Currently, we can only apply for work permits to fill a vacancy if:

  • the role is on the shortage occupation list
  • there are no suitable settled candidates
  • there are no candidates from a country in the EEA to fill the role.

In some very specific circumstances, individuals may find they are able to personally apply for a visa that gives them the right to work here.

If you're a non-EEA national without the right to work in the UK and are considering applying for a role at Wellcome, please find out if you will be able to work in the UK.

Embracing diversity and inclusion is fundamental to delivering our mission to improve health, and we are committed to cultivating a fair and healthy environment for the people work here and those we work with. As we learn more about barriers that disadvantage certain groups from progressing in our workplace, we will remove them.

We are updating our policies and providing training to support the people we employ. We’re also making changes to our recruitment and selection processes to ensure we can continue to attract people from all backgrounds, and achieve our goals.

    From training programmes to volunteering in the local community, secondments to study schemes, we’ll encourage you to try new things and develop your skills.

Recruitment agency policy

We don't accept speculative CVs from recruitment agencies and only pay recruitment agency fees when we instruct an agency.

If unsolicited CVs and proposals are submitted by any other means than our recruitment portal:

  • we reserve the right to contact candidates directly without paying agency fees
  • we take this as evidence of full and unlimited acceptance of Wellcome's recruitment agency policy.

We do sometimes work with a list of preferred suppliers to help us source candidates for specific roles. We're reviewing our preferred suppliers list in summer 2019 and we'll then invite selected agencies to submit an RFP as part of a formal tendering process.
