The job looked really interesting and was the perfect step-up for me.
I joined Anthony Nolan in 2017 and have loved it ever since. I’ve worked on amazing campaigns raising awareness of the stem cell register, helped to bring in new sources of income for the organisation and learnt some amazing science.
I usually have a few meetings, which could be project catch ups, brainstorming ideas for new campaigns or planning sessions with other members of the Engagement Division. And then I might be working on building new webpages, liaising with our digital agencies to plan campaigns, or writing up results from a recent advertising campaign.
The people – everyone here is so friendly and passionate about what we do, which really is saving lives every day.
I led on setting up Facebook Donate, which was a lengthy and complicated process, but has now brought in tens of thousands of pounds to fund our lifesaving work.
If you’re passionate and want to make a real difference to people’s lives, you’ll thrive here. We’re always trying new things and thinking of solutions to problems, so you just have to be willing to pitch in.
Fun, fast-paced and impactful – we meet patients, families, nurses, research scientists who all remind us that what we do makes a real difference.
Do it! It’s such an interesting charity to work for, you’ll learn lots of amazing science, meet inspiring patients and fundraisers and you’ll have tons of fun!
