Culture and values

With us, you can be you – the real you!

We're committed to making things better for everyone affected by a brain tumour and to defending the most amazing part of the human body, so that the diagnosis of a brain tumour is no longer a death sentence.

A ‘we can’ culture

From recent graduates to true experts in their fields, we are a pioneering, passionate, collaborative and smart team.

While we face tough challenges along the way, we nurture an inspiring, fun and positive team environment where you feel valued for being you – the real you, and where you can use your unique talents and skillset most effectively to make a productive and successful difference.

Our values

Our values underpin our culture, the way we do things and what we believe in.

We are:

Pioneering

We are relentless and courageous in the pursuit of our vision, seeking new ways to make a difference.

We will always do what is needed to achieve excellence, even if it’s not easy.

Passionate

People are at the heart of our charity.  We are passionate about finding a cure and ensuring that everyone affected has the highest quality of life and chance of survival. 

We respect and respond to every individual who supports us or who we support in our endeavour to find a cure.

Collaborative

We will only achieve our vision by building networks, partnerships and a strong brain tumour community. We collaborate and value everyone’s contribution - people with a brain tumour, their families and friends, fundraisers and donors, researchers and healthcare professionals.

We will only make a lasting impact and drive change through working together.

Smart

We are focused and intelligent in our approach to defeating brain tumours, providing accurate, relevant and valuable information and always learning, understanding and innovating to improve our charity.

We are the experts you can trust to give you the information you need and to make a difference.

Opportunities worth going that extra mile for!

While we’re not based in the capital, don’t let our location put you off – we cast our net far and wide in order to recruit the very best people and have staff travelling in from all over, as well as a growing number of home-based colleagues who support our work across the UK.

Based in Farnborough, a town in north east Hampshire, we’re just 30 minutes from London by train, and an easy commute from Basingstoke, Guildford, Reading, Southampton and the surrounding areas.

Our office is situated in a central town location and we offer free car parking – a significant cost saving for a central town location. We’re also only a short walk from Farnborough mainline station.

So why not take a look at our roles and find out more about why we’re an organisation worth going that extra mile for!
