About us

Join a team of over 4,000 people from a diverse range of backgrounds and help create a world where everybody lives longer, better lives, free from the fear of cancer. Find a purposeful career that will empower you to grow and collaborate with like-minded experts. Together, we are beating cancer.


Our vision is to create a diverse charity where everyone feels they belong and benefits from the work we do. We value different perspectives that could help us find innovative solutions to our challenges and we want a workforce that represents our communities. We’re committed to funding research into cancer inequalities, diversifying our research community and developing an inclusive culture for all staff. This is how we’ll beat cancer for everyone.

Our specialist teams and departments are structured across six directorates. All of our teams play an important role in supporting our mission. 

The Policy, Information and Communications directorate works to identify and reduce the barriers that are stopping new innovations in cancer prevention, diagnosis and care from being made available and used. 

The Policy, Information and Communications teams use their influence and expertise and work with people affected by cancer to make sure that UK cancer care and innovation ecosystem is amongst the best in the world, and that the benefits of research are shared by everyone, no matter who they are or where they live. The people in this team provide high-quality cancer information to millions of people in a number of ways, including our cancer information nurses.
