Who we are

Established in 2013, Genomics England successfully led the 100,000 Genomes Project in partnership with the NHS.  This world-leading project, which compared and analysed individuals’ genetic codes to help diagnose, treat and prevent illness, was achieved thanks to patients and their families who not only donated their genomes, but who also helped to shape and guide decisions on data and privacy.

Genomics England is now accelerating its impact, working with the NHS to further develop and embed genomic healthcare and research in Britain.  Our next chapter involves working with patients, doctors, scientists, government and industry to improve genomic testing, and help researchers access the health data and technology they need to make new medical discoveries and create more effective, targeted medicines for everybody.

At Genomics England, we now have a tremendously exciting opportunity ahead of us, to transform healthcare through genomic medicine – and we are looking for the brightest minds to join us on this journey. 

We have a number of great new opportunities in many different disciplines, which will all have a significant impact on our future success.  So, if you’re motivated, driven and smart, and would like to help us shape the future of healthcare, and help millions of people live healthier and happier lives, we’d love to talk to you about some of these hugely rewarding roles.
