We understand that people with cancer are worried about coronavirus. Here is the latest guidance. We will update it regularly.
The work we do is varied and different jobs require different skills, but at Macmillan, whatever your role, your work will revolve around our behaviours.
At Macmillan, equality in the workplace is just a part of what we do. That’s why, whatever your age, gender, disability status, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity or family circumstances, we make it our business to make sure you’re treated with fairness and respect.
We’re dedicated to offering flexible working that supports all of our colleagues and we play a big role in both national and sector-specific diversity forums – really investing in finding and developing new and diverse talent.
Ultimately, we want our workforce to represent the people it supports. It’s a pretty big goal, but one that we get closer to all the time.
During our application process, we’ll ask you whether you believe you have a disability as defined by the Equality Act 2010. Of course, you don’t have to answer this question. The only reason we ask it is because we want to give you the opportunity to really shine on your application form and enjoy a great overall candidate experience. And although we will monitor your response, it’s only to ensure that we’re being fair. This is to also make sure we can provide any adjustments to the recruitment process you may need.
If you would rather speak to us in person about diversity at Macmillan or regarding the recruitment process, please email the team at HRServices@macmillan.org.uk with your contact details and we’ll call you back.
Macmillan Cancer Support is committed to improving the lives of everyone affected by cancer and inspiring others to do the same. Macmillan’s wellbeing programme looks to inspire and support health and wellbeing in the workplace so that we can achieve that aim.
Without people that are well and at work we could not deliver quality and effective support to people affected by cancer. We need to ensure that Macmillan’s employees are provided with an environment and opportunities that encourage and enable them to lead healthy lives and make choices that support their wellbeing.
Macmillan has developed a range of approaches to address wellbeing in the workplace, drawing on research into wellbeing and based on feedback obtained from the Wellbeing Audit. This has led to the development of a range of initiatives aimed at helping staff improve their wellbeing. These include half-day and full-day 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 know that the best way to achieve our outcomes and support people affected by cancer is to have a healthy, happy and engaged workforce.
