Why work for us?

We have a simple ambition – to stop men dying from prostate cancer

We’re investing millions to find better treatments and tests that could save thousands of lives. We work with the NHS to make sure men get access to breakthrough tests and treatments. We spread the word about who is at risk of prostate cancer, especially to those at higher risk. We support people dealing with prostate cancer and provide health information. Be part of a team that will put an end to prostate cancer being a killer.

The support we’ll provide

Join our team and you’ll be working at an award-winning charity that will help you learn, develop your skills and expertise, and achieve your highest aspirations. We provide everything you’d expect from a professional organisation – competitive benefits package, contributory pension scheme, life insurance and a season ticket loan – but much more besides. Work with us and you’ll see your efforts pay off as we fight for a better future for men.
