We are committed to making our organisation a place where diversity of people is recognised and valued and where everyone has the same opportunities, is supported to achieve their very best and all feel welcome, included and part of the wider Teenage Cancer Trust team. We strive to create an Inclusive culture where people feel valued, involved and appreciated, with a sense of belonging regardless of their differences. We aspire to achieve this by learning from peoples lived experience, listening to their views, adjusting how we interact with our staff and reviewing processes, training and policies to ensure they align with our goal of being a diverse and inclusive employer.
In just 30 years, we’ve gone from nothing to having Teenage Cancer Trust units in every major UK cancer treatment hospital. But there’s still much more to do to make sure every young person with cancer gets the right support. You can be a key part of that.
We’ll invest in your learning and development, giving you the chance to shine, as well as share your skills and experience with others.
we encourage a healthy work-life balance, for example through our email curfew policy, support for flexible working options to help with family life or study, and other wellbeing initiatives.
we think our benefits compare really well with the rest of the sector, including competitive pension contributions, income protection, gym membership, a great healthcare package and more.
we’re a small charity, so we can still maintain that ‘personal touch’ such as making sure new starters get a great welcome and celebrating all our achievements together.
We take our commitment to safeguarding seriously and work to protect and promote the rights of the young people who we support. Our safeguarding responsibilities extend to the children and adults who work to support the charity, who we also have a duty of care to protect. Safeguarding is at the forefront of each activity we carry out.
