Approves of CEO

I have been working at Cancer Research UK full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Working with intelligent, motivated and inspirational individuals towards a shared amazing aim. Lots of training and internal development opportunities. I managed to progress quickly across teams as CRUK prefers to hire internally. So once you’re, you’re in!

Cons

A bit of a fluffy culture. Sometimes I felt that that delayed efficiencies.

The work was challenging and varied with chances to work in different locations and with supporters.

    Wish I could have known to apply to do more volunteering at many of the diverse events CRUK puts on.
