Inspire a culture of generosity

Through unique relationships with schools, the public, and fundraising.

Break down barriers

By being brave, acting in solidarity, and standing up for what is right.

Make meaningful change

Putting people with experience of the issues we care about at the heart of decision making.

Walk the walk

Giving respect, and positivity, to the work of Comic Relief internally and externally.

Share the stage

Enabling people to tell their own stories on our platforms. And listening.

Make it personal

We celebrate diversity of experience as our greatest resource and strength.

So, what's it like?

There’s lots of fantastic 'non-worky' stuff happening at Comic Relief too, like our softball club and choir, 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.
