It’s unacceptable that more than half of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer die within 3 months. Survival rates have improved enormously for most cancers, yet for pancreatic cancer, this is not the case. And, with treatment and care affected by the pandemic, the situation has only got worse.

The organisation is a national charity dedicated to taking on this injustice using every possible means. They’re supporting people with pancreatic cancer now, campaigning, and funding vital research to transform the future. 



The charity is an inclusive employer, committed and looking for people who can demonstrate dedication to their cause and values.

They celebrate all aspects of diversity and inclusion and believe in appointing the right person for the role and, that there should be no barriers to work and employment. They are aiming to be an organisation whose workforce broadly reflects society and creates a positive environment for everyone to flourish, therefore they particularly welcome applications from candidates who consider themselves to be in a diverse minority. 

The charity offer a supportive place to work with helpful and friendly staff who report a high level of job satisfaction. They are currently working remotely due to Covid-19 restrictions, but their main office is based in London on the river with views towards Westminster. They offer flexible working and they envisage once Covid restrictions are lifted, this role will be a blend of working from home and working in the office.
