Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People has been challenging disability for more than 80 years.  We are a disability charity specialising in independent living, mobility and neurorehabilitation. We offer a wide range of staff and volunteer roles based at a number of  Surrey locations.

The people who work for us are one of our greatest assets.  Our services to disabled clients could not be provided without our staff.  The successful recruitment and retention of staff is vital to the continuing success of QEF. Our services are diverse and so are our clients.  Although we may all look different, QEF people have one thing in common – a passion for what we do. We want to recruit the best and the brightest: people who thrive on collaborating through team work and the discovery of new opportunities.  

QEF people are able to agree their own goals within a strategic framework and all our employees are provided with support and development in order to achieve these goals. We provide staff with a wide range of employment benefits, including up to 33 days’ annual leave (pro-rata for part-time staff), a contributory pension, life assurance, a healthcare plan, shopping discounts, childcare vouchers and free staff parking at our semi-rural locations. We employ around 250 staff across QEF and we all enjoy the benefits of the assistance of over 500 volunteers who provide invaluable support.

In our staff survey 92% of our staff say they enjoy their work, 93% say they are proud to tell others they work for QEF and 95% feel they contribute something meaningful and make a difference.
