Work at Back Up

Back Up is a national charity that inspires people affected by spinal cord injury to get the most out of life.

Our passionate staff team of over 30 people is based in South London. We’re a disability inclusive employer, and we recruit many people who either have, or have been personally affected by, spinal cord injury.

Back Up has a great work culture. We run anonymous staff morale surveys and consistently score well above the sector average on every question. All our staff are professional, approachable, supportive and warm.
