What we do for you

We look after you

Benefits

There are lots of benefits to working at Macmillan. 

  • You can join our BUPA medical cover scheme which we pay for (except for your personal tax liability) and includes the option to buy extra cover for your family.  
  • We give you 25 days holiday a year. After your first year this increases by one day a year, until you reach the 30 days maximum. We adjust this if you’re part-time. 
  • You can apply for a season ticket loan to help keep your travel costs down or take out a loan for gym membership. Both these loans are interest-free. 
  • There is also the option to exchange part of your salary for childcare vouchers and save up to £1,195 per year in tax and national insurance costs. 
  • Macmillan will pay three times your salary as life assurance to the person you choose. 

Wellbeing

The wellbeing of our people is important to Macmillan.

  • When you start work at Macmillan we will give you a volunteering day. Volunteering is a great way for you to get involved and learn more about Macmillan, giving you the chance to do things that you wouldn’t normally do in your role.
  • We have developed a range of initiatives, based on feedback obtained from the Wellbeing Audit, aimed at helping staff improve their wellbeing. These include workshops, bite-size sessions, webinars, video clips, information, support and guidance, so that as many staff as possible can benefit from these regardless of their role or their work location.
  • We also love to get you involved in fundraising. Many of our staff take on personal challenges to raise money for Macmillan and once a year in London is Macmillan Takeover, where as many staff as possible get out on the streets in teams to raise money for Macmillan.

We reward you

At Macmillan our high-performance culture represents who we are and this is evident in those who continuously make Macmillan a great place to work. As such, each year we review our salaries to reward peoples' hard work and impact.

Macmillan also believe in showcasing the great work our people do, which is why we have a Recognition Award Scheme designed to recognise our high performing teams and individuals.


We help you grow

As an organisation, Macmillan places high value on personal development and we strive to give people the opportunity to realise their full potential. We know it's important that you get off on the right foot so we plan an induction introducing you to the organisation and its people. It will also set the context of your role in supporting people affected by cancer whilst maintaining our commitment to Macmillan’s values.

We will ensure we support your transition into Macmillan and the challenges this brings. Coaching and support will be offered which might include a buddy or a mentor as well as your line manager. In addition, a member of your division's HR team will also be there to support you throughout your future career.

We offer a blended learning pathway which helps you to identify your training and development needs and get the support you need to be the best in your new role.
