Working for Make-A-Wish

By working for us, you’ll be helping grant magical wishes to seriously ill children across the UK.


We provide a friendly and professional working environment in which every individual is valued. We're passionate about our work – and have fun doing it! We reward employees with a competitive package that includes salary and other benefits, in line with their role and experience. Some of our employee benefits include:

  • Annual leave that varies according to the post but rises with service
  • Employees can take up to two days of additional paid leave a year, to volunteer for identified charitable programmes or activity
  • We provide staff with the support and training required to do their job to a high standard. We’re keen to encourage staff in their personal and professional development
  • We reimburse employees for their eye test examination fee and contribute towards the cost of their glasses every two years
  • We operate a non-contributory pension scheme into which we pay 6% of the value of the employee’s monthly salary value, and have a Death in Service scheme for all employees' spouses/dependants whilst they are an employee of the charity
  • We're signed up with a payroll giving agency, allowing employees to make charitable donations direct from their pay, before tax is deducted.
