Between 2018 and 2022, we will invest £1.45 billion of public money from government and an estimated £860 million from the National Lottery to help create these experiences for as many people as possible across the country.

We employ more than 500 people in nine offices across England. We believe that our staff should represent the communities, organisations and individuals that we work with and support. We want people from all walks of life to contribute to our work and share their experience, expertise and passion.

We believe in developing your skills and talents – and we promise we’ll continue to invest in your learning and professional development. This includes covering the cost of qualifications, in-house and external training, conferences, e-learning and more.

You’ll be paid a fair wage while gaining skills, knowledge and experience to help you in your career. You’ll also have the chance to learn and develop through training, conferences and other opportunities – that’s why we’ve been awarded an Investors in People Gold award.
