    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in London, England

    Best: generous pension Worst: standardised so only suits some employees

    You get free books, etc. when they come into the store sometimes, or you get discounts on stock and first pick.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Business Development Manager in London, England

    Annual Leave is standard, with 25 days for staff having been there below 5 years, 27 days for 5-10 years and 30 days after 10 years. Good pension scheme, with employee matching. The 'benefits' package is just discounts at a few, seemingly random retailers. The majority of staff never use the discounts as they are small and can be more admin than they're worth. Home working is encouraged, especially on Friday's which, for many of the staff, seem to be used as a day off in the world of CRUK.

    As a charity, benefits are non financial so take the form of flexible working and generous holiday allowances. No bonus, as you would expect.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Birmingham, England

    I was in a volunteer summer intern role so benefits packages weren't applicable to my role, but I was able to take holiday (obviously unpaid because I was in a volunteer role)

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Retail Store Manager in Bourne, England

    Very few perks provided. Not a great level of appreciation for their underpay ed over worked staff

    Interns are unpaid, expected to work between 3-4 days per week. Provided travel expenses (capped) and £4 lunch money per day.

    Good annual leave. It generally starts at 25 days and you get extra days after 5 years. You can also buy up to 5 extra days.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Fundraising in London, England

    Really good package for the sector - I know the team a few years ago put in a lot of work on this, its a shame that little has been done since
