Wellcome is a politically and financially independent global charitable foundation, funded by a £29.1 billion investment portfolio. We support discovery research into life, health and wellbeing, and we're taking on three worldwide health challenges: Mental Health, Climate & Health and Infectious Diseases.
These challenges need the bold science we support, but they won't be solved by science alone and because it will take more than science alone to solve these health challenges, we need people who can work with policy, culture, governments and the research community.
Facilities & Workplace comprises a small team dedicated to the provision of high standard services and projects within Wellcome's London buildings. All core services, i.e. Engineering, Cleaning, Security, FoH and Catering are provided by outsourced business partners.
