Why work with us?
Every man needs to know about the most common cancer in men – prostate cancer. It’s a real and present danger that takes over 12,000 of our dads, grandads, brothers and friends each year.
Prostate Cancer UK is the largest men’s health charity in the UK. We have a simple ambition – to stop prostate cancer damaging lives. We invest millions in research to revolutionise testing, treatment and care. We’re blazing a trail to a screening programme that could save thousands of lives with regular, accurate tests for all men at risk. And we work tirelessly to spread the word about risk and offer specialist support to people living with the disease.
Work with us and you’ll see your efforts pay off as we give men and their families the power to navigate prostate cancer.

Our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion
At Prostate Cancer UK, we believe that equity, diversity and inclusion are essential to building a strong and innovative workplace, that represents, and can advocate for, the communities we support. It’s our ambition to become an anti-racist organisation, and our mission to advance racial equity in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer.
We’re incredibly proud of our new Black Men’s Racial Health Equity Campaign, and our inclusive learning journey. We know that reaching marginalised communities that need us most, particularly Black men who are at a higher risk of prostate cancer, starts with better representation in our organisation.
Therefore, we’re particularly interested in applications from those from marginalised and vulnerable communities. This will help us create an environment of inclusion where everyone can bring their authentic selves to work, where personal qualities are as important as professional experience, and our people feel seen and heard.
Our people networks
We’re learning more about the needs of our colleagues, and we’re excited to have recently launched three new people networks, sponsored by our Leadership team:
- Pride – A safe space where LGBTQ+ colleagues ? and our allies ? can share their diverse lived experiences, celebrate LGBTQ+ culture and history, and create new ideas about how our organisation can be more inclusive and representative of LGBTQ+ people
- Mind & Body – Here to increase awareness, promote wellbeing and support colleagues affected by neurodiversity, mental health problems, disability and long-term illness
- Multicultural – Here to increase awareness and celebrate the different cultures and beliefs that we have in the organisation, so that we all have our cultures felt and feel welcomed
Wellbeing and hybrid working
Our hybrid working approach combines the best of flexible working – a positive work/life balance, inclusive and accessible platforms, and online information at our fingertips. We understand that everyone has different needs, and we strive to create opportunities for relationship building, collaboration and social time.
Each of our teams has a team agreement outlining when and how often we’re expected to be in our London Bridge office. We’re very welcome to work there more frequently. Office time is a commute, so we pay our own travel costs.
For this role, we would expect the successful candidate to be coming into the London office at least four times per month (this may be more frequent during your induction to the role).
