First we assess the flexibility options Blood Cancer UK provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure Blood Cancer UK is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.

What employees are saying

"There has been a significant shift in our ways of working over the last few years. It feels as though it has become the norm to work as flexibly as you feel comfortable with. There are periods in the year where it gets extremely busy, but the skills we're developing in house are focused on time management and prioritisation to support all staff to feel confident to challenge or offer alternative solutions if capacity is stretched."
