The wellbeing of our people is important to Macmillan. You can join our BUPA medical cover scheme which we pay for (except for your personal tax liability). You can even choose to buy extra cover for your family.
We give you 25 days holiday a year. And after one year, it goes up by one day a year, until you reach 30 days. (We adjust this if you’re part-time.)
My interest-free season ticket loan saves me over £1,000 a year. It really makes a difference.
Rebecca, Marketing and Communications.
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.
You can 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.
At Macmillan our high-performance culture represents who we are and shows in the people who have made and continue to make Macmillan a great place to work. As such, each year we review our salaries to recognise peoples' hard work and impact.
Macmillan 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.
Macmillan is an organisation where we value learning and giving 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.
The culture at Macmillan is infectious – I’ve never thought of personally fundraising or volunteering before, and now I’ve done both.
Amanda, Communications officer
We want to improve the lives of everyone affected by cancer, and support them in facing whatever the future brings. It is our ambition to get as many people as possible to support this vital goal, and that includes the people who work for 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. It may help you in your personal development and give you the chance to do things that you wouldn’t normally do in your role.
We also love to get you involved in fundraising, many of our staff take on personal challenges to raise money for Macmillan. In London we ask as many staff as possible to get out on the streets of London in teams to collect money for Macmillan.
