We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

About us

My wellbeing


Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)

As an MRC employee you will have the benefit of access to our EAP service which can be a valuable source of advice and support across a whole range of lifestyle and work matters.

Through the EAP you can gain fast access to qualified counsellors either by telephone or through a  face-to-face consultation

Sick Pay

With all our Wellbeing initiatives we hope that you will remain fit and healthy but if you do get ill, you may receive up to 6 months’ full sick pay within a rolling 12 month period of absence.   

Flu Vaccinations

In the autumn of each year you will be offered the opportunity to have a flu vaccination.

Occupational Health

We work with Occupational Health providers to ensure that during your employment with MRC we are supported with the right professional advice. Our Occupational Health providers also provide checks and assessments on areas which may be specific to your role. They also provide inoculations if you are travelling abroad on business.
