Breast Cancer Now is the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, created by the merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

We made some truly incredible advances. But it became clear we could do more for everyone affected by breast cancer if we did it together, as Breast Cancer Now. We’re a new charity with a new approach. And now, we’re on the cusp of something life-changing.

Our ambition is that by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live.

What we offer

Working at Breast Cancer Now is both challenging and rewarding. We are always looking for dedicated professionals across a wide range of disciplines to join our team. Are you ready for the challenge?

In addition to all UK bank holidays Breast Cancer Now offers 25 days annual leave plus all working days between Christmas and New Year, ½ day on Christmas Eve, a generous pension scheme and a cash health plan.
