These are qualities you’ll find exhibited in abundance by the 200+ permanent staff in our main office in Vauxhall, central London, and by the temporary staff and regional teams that work in London, Cardiff, Glasgow and Manchester during our campaigns.
So, what's it like?
There’s also lots of fantastic ‘non-worky’ stuff happening at Comic Relief too, like our softball and book clubs, plus the yearly acoustic and band nights.
Our Staff Representation Group gives us the opportunity to raise issues about things we care about, for example environmental concerns and staff benefits, and our annual Learning at Work Week gives staff a fantastic opportunity to learn new professional skills and hobbies.
We also offer all our employees a comprehensive and competitive package of benefits including up to 30 days’ holiday, an excellent pension scheme, life insurance, childcare vouchers and a full employee assistance programme offering both a supportive helpline and cashback on day-to-day healthcare costs. And finally, but certainly not least, we even get a Personal Training Allowance to spend on life-improving classes or activities – anything from yoga to saxophone lessons! So, if that sounds like the kind of place you’d like to work, we’d love to hear from you.
The Living Wage
Comic Relief has been accredited as a London Living Wage employer.
The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. The Living Wage is calculated according to the basic cost of living using the ‘Minimum Income Standard’ for the UK.
Decisions about what to include in this standard are set by the public; it is a social consensus about what people need to make ends meet.
We want Comic Relief to appeal to as many people as possible, regardless of their gender, age, race, disability, religion, sexual orientation or cultural identity.
We're doing all we can to be more relevant to everyone - from employees to volunteers, celebrity supporters to committee members and all the fantastic fundraisers that do incredible things for us.
Comic Relief has a Diversity Steering Group that guides the way we broaden our appeal to as many people as we can. The Group looks at our grant-making and recruitment procedures as well as the way we communicate and talk to fundraisers.
