Best charity employers revealed by jobs website

04 Dec 2018 News

Cancer Research UK has topped a newly published ranking of the best charity and public sector organisations. 

Recruitment website Indeed has analysed employee reviews to come up with the ranking. Reviewers ranked organisations out of five on issues such as: work-life balance, salary/benefits, job security/advancement, management and culture and also rated their organisation's chief executive.

The last time it carried out this analysis Oxfam topped the list and CRUK was in seventh place. 

Indeed said that CRUK had topped the list because its employees had cited a culture of good work-life balance. 

Oxfam came second in the rankings, followed by National Citizen Service, the British Heart Foundation and Sue Ryder in fifth.

  1. Cancer Research UK 
  2. Oxfam

Bill Richards, UK managing director at global job site Indeed, said: “It’s striking that in the non-profit sector, just as in the commercial world, the employers that score highest with their staff are those who make their teams feel valued, and offer a good work-life balance and a positive workplace culture.”
