About the Charity
Every day brings new challenges. Every day, over 600 seriously ill children from across the UK arrive for life-changing treatments. Every day, young lives hang in the balance as patients, families and staff battle the most complex illnesses. And every day, the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs that change the lives of thousands of children – and change the world. This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential. Without donations, our client can’t help fund ground-breaking research, advanced equipment, child and family support services, and the rebuilding and refurbishment of wards and medical facilities. Their staff help to raise these vital funds for the hospital. A better future for seriously ill children starts with you.
Recently awarded with a ‘Best Companies 2-star accreditation’ and placed number 17 on the 2019 Sunday Times Best 100 Not-for-Profit Companies list – they offer a range of attractive benefits including; a flexible approach to working, 30 days holiday, life assurance, enhanced employer pension contributions, and a discounted season ticket loan.
Their Commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
They recognise that people from some backgrounds are under-represented in their workforce and across the wider Charity sector. In April 2021 they launched their ambitious three-year EDI strategy committing to becoming a more inclusive workforce, reflecting the diverse communities that they work with and for and demonstrating this through all areas of work.
A more diverse workforce will enable them to deliver even more impact and they particularly encourage applications from communities which are under-represented in the charity. This includes people from Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority backgrounds, people with a disability, people who are LGBT+ or who are from less advantaged socioeconomic groups.
