Working with us:
We are an inclusive employer looking for people who can demonstrate dedication to our cause and values.
We celebrate all aspects of diversity and inclusion and believe in appointing the right person for the role and, that there should be no barriers to work and employment. We are aiming to be an organisation whose workforce broadly reflects our society and creates a positive environment for everyone to flourish, therefore we particularly welcome applications from candidates who consider themselves to be in a diverse minority.
We offer a dynamic, high-performing, and supportive place to work with friendly and welcoming staff who are really focussed on moving our cause forward and report a high level of job satisfaction. We are a growing and changing organisation and this brings the opportunity for our people to grow with us and to contribute and influence who we are in the future. We only have one office which is based in London on the river with spectacular views towards Westminster (SE1), and, we feel that for the size and type of organisation that we are, it is highly beneficial that our people come into the office at times, as this works great for creating positive energies, collaboration between different teams and supports our culture of impactful and responsive working. We believe having different ways of connecting, interacting, and working is good for everybody and better for us as an organisation. We don’t feel that it is necessary for everyone to be in the office all the time and so we envisage that this role will be a blend of working from home and working in the office under a hybrid working model, and we are happy to consider flexible working options.
About our recruitment process:
We are a small but growing charity, and like every other organisation, we are aware that the recruitment market is competitive and that great candidates do not stay on the market for long and in some cases, the resource is scarce. Every vacancy is a gap for us in which we do not have the correct level of resources to help us combat our fight against Pancreatic Cancer and make a difference in increasing survival rates and supporting those impacted.
We also know that candidates want us to come back to them quickly, so we may do rolling interviews as part of our adaptive recruitment process. We do not want anyone to feel excluded by this approach and we will do our best to accommodate a suitable time for your interview that works for you and our hiring managers. If you have a question about the role/ process just get in touch with us! We are happy to chat this through!
