Help us transform health for all

Our Institute is made up of a multidisciplinary group of talented people with a common ambition to empower people to transform their health and that of others. It’s this drive, and the collaborative nature of everything that we do, which helps us tackle health challenges across the globe. 

IGHI recognises the importance of having a diverse workforce, who bring a diverse set of ideas, skills and experiences. To make a real difference in global health, we strive to have an institute that listens to everyone’s voices. No one should be left behind in healthcare and this cannot be achieved without an inclusive environment.     

We proudly support Imperial’s ‘Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy: Inclusive excellence’. The strategy actively seeks to ensure equality, diversity and inclusion are integrated across the College and positive action is made to improve the opportunities and experiences of underrepresented groups.

A place to learn

“I enjoy working with different people across IGHI. This allows me to constantly learn new things in different areas of clinical research as well as develop my understanding of various analytical tools and techniques; it is a never-ending learning curve. I also love the fact that my work helps support impactful healthcare research and its positive
applications for society and beyond.”

Davina Tijani, Research Support Analyst, Big Data and Analytical Unit (BDAU)

Impactful work

"As a designer, being able to work so closely with clinicians, academics, engineers alongside other designers means IGHI is genuinely a unique place to do incredibly impactful work. We get to tackle really tough health challenges and bring together so many varied skills and perspectives. It’s never a dull day here, and I leave every day feeling deeply satisfied."

Opening up opportunities

“While working at IGHI I have been so grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to ‘dip my toes’ into different areas of academia. When I joined in early 2018 I didn’t have a clear direction for my career, but my experiences to date have really guided me towards areas that I’m most interested in. This year, I decided to take Imperial’s Global Master of Public Health which I was encouraged to do by my manager. I’m really excited about the opportunities this, and my work at IGHI, will open up in the future.”
