Find out what some of our staff have to say about working at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity. 

Charity employee, Hatty, at the London Santa Dash
Harriet James, Marketing Executive (International and Private Patients)

"I love working for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity – it is such an inspirational place. The community and atmosphere at the charity are fantastic and the work that goes on at the hospital is just amazing.

"I started at the charity as an intern just after my masters degree – 10 months later I was made a permanent member of staff. Every day at the charity is different. I might be interviewing a family for a case study, working on one of the websites, creating specialty guides or even directing a photoshoot on one of the wards! 

"Through my work I have been able to meet so many inspiring people both at the charity and hospital, and every day I learn something new. Working at GOSH has given me a whole new perspective on the wonderful and valuable work done here and I feel very lucky to be a part of this organisation."

Jennifer Sutherland, Development Manager (Major Gifts)

"As a Development Manager in the Major Gifts team at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, I work with a broad range of people, from our fantastic supporters to the hospital’s world-leading researchers and clinicians, and collaboration with other teams at the charity is also a big part of the job. The charity is a good size and has a great profile so there are always lots of exciting projects to get involved in, and ways to grow and learn in the job. No two days are ever the same.

"The hospital truly is at the forefront of paediatric medicine. As a fundraiser it’s exciting to be able to share this work with our supporters, but it is also a huge motivation – we have all visited the hospital and seen the incredibly brave children and families who benefit.

"Until I joined the charity three years ago as Development Executive, I didn't realise just how many people I knew who had been touched by the hospital’s work, whether personally or as family members of patients, past and present. It makes me very proud to work in support of an organisation which makes a difference to so many people and which really does transform lives."

Alice Barnard, Press and Communications Assistant

"As a recent graduate applying to be a Press and Communications Assistant/Intern at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity was a dream role for me, but a long shot. After receiving many knock backs from companies who did not want to give a graduate with limited experience a chance I was shocked I got the role, but ecstatic.

"I had heard amazing things about GOSH from my sister who had previously worked in the hospital as a play worker so was excited to start my own journey at the charity. When I first started it was amazing how much the team trusted me and gave me important responsibilities from day one, which was refreshing as many interns are often overlooked, especially in media.

"I love my role as every day is different, one day I can be writing press releases and monitoring press coverage and the next I can be at the hospital meeting families and hearing their amazing stories. Since I’ve been at GOSH I’ve had the pleasure of being involved in really exciting projects and come home each day feeling so lucky. My journey in the past few months has been so vast, I can’t wait to see what the next nine hold for me!"

Ravinder Singh, Project and Business Analysis Manager

"Being part of the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity team has meant that I have been involved in some really interesting projects and initiatives. These range from working on a system that looks after patient case studies to turning new fundraising ideas into reality on our charity website.

"The career development here is fantastic. I started as a Business Analyst and now, as the Project and Business Analysis Manager, I am responsible for a team of business analysts.

"I feel very privileged to be part of such a great cause. Working so closely with the hospital means that results of your efforts can be seen almost immediately.  There are always opportunities to get involved at fundraising events such as the F1 in Silverstone and the Christmas parties where you have a chance to meet the patients themselves and learn about their experiences in the hospital."
