Equality and inclusion

We believe in equal opportunities for all staff.

We make sure that no member of staff or job applicant is treated less favourable because of their sex, age, sexual orientation, pregnancy, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or philosophical belief, disability, gender identity/reassignment, marital status, family circumstance or age; or be disadvantaged by conditions or requirements that are not justified.

We value the diversity of our workforce and aim to give all staff the same opportunities. When decisions are made about staff (including selection, grading, training, promotion and setting terms and conditions of employment) we will make sure they are not discriminated against for any reason. 

It is important to us that our staff, volunteers and people who use our programme of support and those who financially support Maggie’s are treated with dignity and respect at all times while involved with Maggie’s.

Your induction

Before you begin your new role at , you'll spend time in one of our centres across the UK – it's a very important part of joining our organisation.

You'll spend time observing, participating in classes, hearing from staff and chatting at the kitchen table with the people who come to us for cancer support.

When you start your new role, you'll have an orientation week where your line manager and colleagues support you as you get settled in to your new role.
