Benefits, Recognition and Wellbeing

Recognising “Our Heroes”

We think it’s really important to recognise and celebrate the amazing work that happens throughout Cancer Research UK. “Our Heroes” is an internal awards scheme we use to shout about the wonderful individuals and teams who go above and beyond.

No matter where you work or what team you are in, we love to reward everyone who helps towards achieveing our goals. 


As an organisation committed to changing lives, we care a lot about our own people too. We’ll help you take care of your health, happiness and financial well-being. And your talent, passion and hard work will be rewarded. So, while our inspiring work and engaging workplaces might be a big incentive, our benefits package could bring some positive life changes you wouldn’t have expected.
