What is it like to work for Breast Cancer Campaign

Leadership
Leadership
The refreshing of the Campaign brand with several new elements, including a new strapline BE PART OF THE CURE and PINK SCIENCE which brings together staff, scientists and supporters has been the single biggest focus of the Senior Management Team with an emphasis on staff engagement. The refreshed brand maintains the heritage and core strengths and values of the charity while making them more relevant to the organisation for the 21st century and more inclusive to all its stakeholders, with staff at the heart of this. They know from the incredible positive feedback since its July launch and its roll-out particularly in October, how well this has been received externally as well as internally, and how staff at all levels can relate to this as well as using it in a meaningful way.

Wellbeing

They operate an Employee Assistance Programme with telephone advice and counselling, face to face counselling and online health and monitoring through Lifeworks for all staff. This is backed up by their policy and breast awareness work which advocates a healthy lifestyle plus a policy relating to their corporate partners and CRM work in the food arena. Staff are encouraged to use the Cycle to Work Scheme and to take part in their sporting events, such as 10k runs and half marathons, plus they have a highly competitive softball team with members from all departments. They do not encourage a long hour’s culture and the office is locked before 8 and after 6 to encourage a work life balance. They also encourage people to take proper breaks and not eat at their desk.

Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
Their mission, vision and core purpose as a charity of beating breast cancer is a life changing method of giving back to which all staff buy-in and actively contribute. With this in mind, they recognise the importance of funding medical research, without which the charity would not exist and the key role the supporters play at every level to contribute to this. Staff are encouraged to volunteer at events and to fundraise themselves, for Breast Cancer Campaign and for other charities or causes. This year, all staff were asked to volunteer in October for one event outside the day job, an example set by the Chief Executive and Senior Management Team and recorded on a Wall of Wonder in the Fundraising Department.
