Working for Macmillan
More than just a job
Hear what our people have to say about working here.
The work we do is varied and different jobs require different skills. But whatever your role we all base our work and behaviour around five important values:
We are personal
We treat everyone we come into contact with as an individual and with care. We listen to their experiences and needs and provide them with the personal support that’s right for them. That’s true whether they’re a person living with cancer, someone who wants to raise money or a potential volunteer.
We demand better
Whatever we do, we always believe there’s room for improvement. So we demand better – from ourselves and others. We’re constantly looking at the bigger picture and for better ways of doing things so we can stay one step ahead and shape a better future for everyone affected by cancer.
We are open
We understand that collaboration is the only way we can help improve the lives of everyone affected by cancer. We are open-minded and inclusive. That is why we share our expertise and experience with each other and the wider world. We’re not afraid of letting go and enabling others to build on our work.
We inspire others
Our shared commitment to what we do inspires us to do our best. Our positive energy inspires people affected by cancer to cope with their experience. And our passion will inspire millions of people to get involved, to change the lives of everyone living with cancer.
We are practical experts
We are recognised for our expertise in everything we do – from providing cancer care, to fundraising, to campaigning. Our reputation is based on constantly improving our skills and involving people affected by cancer – the real experts – in all areas of our work. We’re action-focused, so we use our expertise to deliver tangible improvements to peoples’ lives.
We work in a changing world which offers great opportunities for people with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool as well as those who reflect the diverse nature of our society. And we aim to encourage a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their strengths. Creating value through diversity is what makes us strong as a business.
Here at Macmillan everyone is treated with dignity and respect and we aim to value the talents and skills of different groups and strive for an environment where our productivity and services improve because staff and volunteers are happier, more motivated and more aware of the benefits that inclusion and diversity can bring.
As an organisation with an increasingly agile workforce, we're open to flexible working arrangements where appropriate.
