The George experience

Attracting, developing and retaining the best people in their fields is the key to our success to date, and our growth in the future.

Our employee surveys consistently tell us that our team of global employees relish the opportunity to work in a values-based organisation that is having a real impact on the health of millions of people; an environment where global collaboration, diversity and flexibility are key tenants of their experience at The George.

Diversity is important to us. We are committed to providing a diverse and inclusive work environment where individual differences are respected and valued and the richness of ideas, backgrounds and perspectives are harnessed to create positive impact in health outcomes around the world.

You get to experience different people, different cultures and different viewpoints coming to the same table and turning out the best ideas for the population worldwide.

We recognise that flexibility is really important to our diverse workforce.  We know that our team members have many other aspects to their lives – carer’s responsibilities, personal interests, volunteer activities etc. We are committed to supporting our team to integrate work into the rest of their lives. 

Flexibility can be seen in – for example - your working hours, and your working location. I think the George being a flexible environment is what makes this a really special place to work

In 20 years, The George has grown to 700+ people in 13 countries. We have projects in 45 countries and extensive global partnerships that help maximise the influence of our health and medical research around the world. 

The research we deliver has global implications. For example, if we‘ve found out something new about blood pressure, that affects millions of people around the world. Our work and research is guided by what will have the greatest impact globally.

The George team is leading the way in making real changes to health outcomes around the world. We have affiliations with world-class universities such as UNSW Sydney and Peking University Health Science Center and work in collaboration with Imperial College London. Our profile enables us to advocate for health policy change with governments and other peak bodies. 

Most of our work is published in very high-impact journals. Our work informs clinical practice AND public health policy-making.

In our most recent employee engagement survey, 84% of The George team said they believe in our values, which is well above global benchmarks.

The kind of people who work here are really committed to the organisation and the values of the organisation.
