Reimagine public health with us

Common Thread has been shaking up the world of global public health since 2017. We harness the power of human behaviour to stop the spread of disease, connecting behavioural insights with community insights to design public health solutions that always put people first.

We like to do things a little differently at Common Thread. From behavioural scientists and public health specialists to designers and communicators, our team is made up of some of the most creative, curious, and optimistic people you’ll ever meet.

If you believe in the power of people to influence positive change, if you’re tired of the 9 to 5 cubicle grind, if you want to join a motley crew of creative problem solvers, drop us a line.

Our core values bring Common Thread to life

  • Teamwork Makes the Dreamwork

    We’re in this together. We’ve got each other’s back. Speak up when you disagree. Argue openly, passionately, and with respect. One voice, one team. We move forward together.

  • Find the People

    People drive change. Whether in our team, our clients or most importantly – the communities we’re trying to support. Always be on the lookout for the people who can help spark change.

  • Create Superheroes

    The change we ignite will only last if we can inspire the people who can keep the sparks filying when we leave. Within their world, help them shine. Within themselves, help them to see they have the [super] power to create change.

  • Spark Joy

    Aim for surprise, beauty, even delight. Enjoy what you’re doing. In this, we have fun, we create opportunities, we open doors, we inject some magic and we spark joy.

  • Be curious

    If we don’t understand, we increase our chance of failure. Curiosity about life in all of its aspects is the secret of great, creative people.

  • Don’t take y[our] word for it

    Common Thread is about evidence: finding it, creating it, and promoting it. Evidence comes in many forms. Anecdote and big data can both obscure reality.

How we work

We are a small, fully remote company with associates based all over the world. We search hard to find “our people” and are always on the lookout for talented people to join the Common Thread family.
