Our vision is to create a diverse charity where everyone feels like they belong and benefits from the work we do. We value different perspectives that could help us find innovative solutions to our challenges and we want a workforce that represents our communities. We are committed to funding research into cancer inequalities, diversifying our research community and developing an inclusive culture for all staff. This is how we’ll beat cancer for everyone.

Join a workplace that encourages collaboration

We encourage a flexible working culture, including options such as home-working, reduced or flexi-hours, job shares, job-splits, compressed and core hours. We also offer a high level of flexibility for the vast majority of our office-based roles, meaning that you’ll only be required to work from a specific location for 1 or 2 days a week on average.
