About Blood Cancer UK

FLEXIBLE WORKING & OUR BENEFITS

Location: Very few of our roles require staff to work from an office. If that's where you do your best work, then fine. But equally, meeting objectives and beating blood cancer is far more important to us than where you choose to work from. We trust our teams to make the best decision about when and where they work. And because we pay you for the role you do, not where you choose to live or work, we only have one pay scale rather than regional variances. Details about our flexible, hybrid and agile working approach (including how travel expenses work) can be found on our website.

We welcome conversations about part time working, job shares, and all forms of flexible working right from application stage. You can get in touch with us at recruitment@bloodcancer.org.uk if you want to ask us anything about flexible working.

Benefits: We think our benefits are brilliant, and the majority start from day 1. These are just a few of them:
  • 30 days annual leave PLUS bank holidays
  • Generous pension scheme and Life Assurance
  • Enhanced maternity, paternity and adoption leave, as well as study leave and a day off to move house
  • Wellbeing is a priority for us, we offer a wide range of individual and team support in our Wellbeing Hub
  • Our Academy is our in-house Continued Professional Development (CPD) learning and development programme, including an internal mentoring scheme. We have organisation-wide focus days, which are days set aside for you to focus on your own development, without being interrupted by emails and meetings.
  • Cycle to work and season ticket loans
  • Opportunity to take sabbaticals
You can find full details about our benefits on our website.

HOW TO APPLY
We ask you to send us a CV and cover letter. In your cover letter, we'd like to know why you're interested in working with us at Blood Cancer UK. It's also helpful if you tell us why you think you are a great candidate for this role based on the skills, knowledge and expertise section above. Your cover letter doesn't have to be too long, 1-2 pages is ideal. Please don't add photos or graphics to your CV, as we use blind shortlisting at this stage of the process.

Full details about our recruitment processes, including how we use blind shortlisting and what to expect at each stage of the process can be found on our website. Sometimes we close our vacancies early, usually because we have had a lot of great applicants, so we’d always encourage you to apply early rather than wait until the deadline.

WHY WORK AT BLOOD CANCER UK?

We're the 9th best charity in the UK to work for according to Best Companies 2021! 

We started because of Susan, we’ll get there because of you.

Blood Cancer UK was started by one family who lost their daughter, Susan, to blood cancer, and that history and sense of family continues to shape who we are today. When you join Blood Cancer UK, you don’t just become an organisational employee – you become part of a collaborative community dedicated to funding research into beating blood cancer that includes some of the most inspiring people you’ll ever meet. 

And we’re not that far away from beating blood cancer. We’re confident we can do it within the next generation, and this makes us hugely ambitious and gives us a sense of real urgency. It also means we’re changing quickly as an organisation as we constantly challenge ourselves and strive to become more and more effective. This pace of change means working here isn’t for everyone. But if you’re excited by the chance to work in a fast-paced, agile and supportive environment with the focus and ambition to beat blood cancer this could be the place for you! We focus on results rather than time spent at a desk, so we deliver more for people affected by blood cancer.

Blood Cancer UK offers the chance to work for and with people affected by blood cancer, and the opportunity to advance your career and develop your skillset whilst taking on exciting new challenges and making your mark. 


EQUALITY, DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
We are committed to actively promoting equality, diversity, and inclusivity. Read our statement which reflects our strong drive to change in this area.
 
To this end we would welcome approaches from qualified individuals from underrepresented groups, including Black and Ethnic minority communities, and applicants with a disability, to better reflect the community we serve and help broaden our perspectives.
