We're a forward-thinking, friendly organisation that values each and every person in our team. As the nature of our work is helping people in such a personal and direct way, we have a fantastic working environment.
Of course, with seven busy divisions, working for Anthony Nolan can be challenging. Our work includes research, tissue-typing over 20,000 samples, responding to over 16,000 search requests, co-ordinating over 900 transplants every year and generating a £26 million income.
We like to set ourselves big goals. Our work has been consistently successful because we are innovative. So our challenge doesn't just come from the pressure of meeting existing commitments, but from our need to constantly improve. The bigger and better we become, we can save more lives.
Our donor management and core management teams work from our head offices, in Hampstead, North West London, close to Hampstead Heath. Our Histocompatibility Laboratory and Research Institute are located on a separate site 500 metres away, in the grounds of the Royal Free Hospital. We also employ a nationwide network of fundraisers and donor recruitment managers. In September 2008, we opened the Anthony Nolan Cell Therapy Centre in Nottingham, which deals with research for our cord blood bank.
