We offer a wide range of benefits, most of which start from day one of joining us.
Our benefits span three main areas: wellbeing, culture, and learning and development.
We constantly strive to ensure that our working practices are in line with our values as an organisation. An example of this is that we do not use probation periods. This is because we don’t think they are necessary. We spend lots of time and effort recruiting amazing people like you. We think that if something isn’t going well, the best way to address that is to have a conversation. Most of our benefits start immediately, so the only real change you’ll see is that there is not a shorter notice period during your first six months. Our focus when you start with us is on making sure you feel part of the Blood Cancer UK family as quickly as possible, and we have an induction and settling in process to support you.
We also think that financial wellbeing is vital. So the minimum salary for any of our roles is £25,000 (excluding apprentices).
Benefits for staff
We offer a generous 30 days annual leave as well as bank holidays.
All staff can request sabbaticals at any point, which are considered on a case by case basis.
We take staff wellbeing and mental health seriously and have both Mental Health First Aiders and Time to Change Employee Champions. We also run Schwartz Rounds for all employees.
As well as providing discounts on eye care, we provide an Employee Assistance Programme. This is a free, confidential counselling service to all staff, as well as a general advice service.
We also offer free flu vaccinations and we support the End Period Poverty campaign, and provide free period products in our offices.
Our agile working culture means that you can manage your time in a way which supports your wellbeing.
We work in a social environment with a range of activities throughout the year run by our Culture Club.
When you join us you’ll be enrolled on our pensions scheme, where our contributions increase with your length of service. You’ll also qualify for life assurance as part of this.
Other benefits include an interest free season ticket loans, a ride-to-work scheme, and an interest-free loan scheme.
Our Academy is our in-house Continued Professional Development (CPD) programme. We will help you develop your career by supporting your personal development and encouraging internal progression. This includes recognising individuals’ achievements through our internal staff awards. We run an internal mentoring scheme which you can join at any point.
We also provide generous enhancements within our parental and family leave policies, as well as study leave and a day for moving house.
