In the past ten years THET has reached over 100,000 health workers across 31 countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia in partnership with over 130 UK institutions.

We have also recently experienced a period of growth bringing the total number of staff at THET to c. 50. Of these, 60% are based in the UK and have access to an office near Regent’s Park in London. However, in the past eighteen months we have very actively encouraged applicants from other parts of the UK who are happy to be home-working.

THET offers a range of benefits including 25 days annual leave (pro-rata) plus 3 days winter closure between Christmas and New Year; 5% pension contribution when Employee contributes 3%; Cycle to work scheme; and a Child Care voucher scheme.

Today, one billion people will never see a qualified health worker in their lives. Since 1988, THET has been working to change this.

THET is an exceptionally friendly place to work, and we have maintained this reputation throughout the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In our most recent staff survey for example, we scored >79% satisfaction ratings across 12 of 15 questions, an 89% approval rating for how the charity is responding to COVID-19.
