We ensure that money from the National Lottery makes a decisive difference for people, places and communities.

Also, to drive forward and deliver the goals and outcomes of the Heritage Fund’s People Strategy by collaborating with all HR functions, as one team, to deliver on priorities.

Our Values

Our Values and Behaviours sit at the heart of our work and are central to how we recruit. How you demonstrate our Values is just as important to us as your skills and experience.

Flexible Working

The National Lottery Heritage Fund has offices all over the UK and we champion a flexible approach to working where this supports our business needs. We have formally adopted a hybrid working approach. This means that most employees will work from their contracted Heritage Fund office twice a week at minimum. Time spent on site visits to projects or other meetings based at another Heritage Fund or external office are counted as part of those two days. The other days in the week employees may work from home.

Disability Confident Employer

We guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum essential criteria for every vacancy. We always endeavour to make reasonable adjustments and special requirements can be discussed and arranged before an interview.


Our values

Four values sit at the heart of everything we do. We are:

  • Inclusive

  • Ambitious

  • Collaborative 

  • Trusted 

They help us build success for our people as well as for heritage, communities and the environment. Make sure you read about these values before applying to us, as they form a central part of the application process.

Our values and behaviours make The National Lottery Heritage Fund a great place to work. We very much hope you can join us. 

Best wishes and good luck with your application.
