We value

our volunteers

We have a great army of volunteers donating their time and skills to help us with our work. But to help more hearts we need more people just like you to volunteer with us.

You will join a highly motivated team who help make sure that our events run smoothly, collections are counted, our new fundraisers feel supported and generally keep operations running efficiently.

In our Leeds office, we are currently looking for people with the below skills:

General Admin

Typing mailouts, inputting



Website Management

Healthcare experience

Admin (databases)

We are also always on the lookout for volunteers who can help with our events. We have a selection of 5k runs across the country (from April to September) and we need people to help with the registration tent, ensuring all participants have what they need to take part. These are really great events which we organise in partnership with Subway®. Please contact corporate@heartresearch.org.uk or call 0113 234 7474 if you’d like to help.

We are based in Leeds at Joseph’s Well (LS3 1AB) and you can decide how many days/half days you would like to volunteer each week – whatever suits you. We can provide you with a parking space, but alternatively we are only a short walk from Leeds train station and we are surrounded by lots of bus routes, so access to us is easy.

Our commitment to our volunteers

We are the first to say that we are only as good as our supporters and volunteers. So we will invest in you, to help you feel confident in your role and enjoy a valuable and rewarding experience.

We will provide plenty of support, on-the-job training, resources and where necessary specialist training too. A dedicated member of staff from Heart Research UK will also act as your point of call for all advice, support and information.
