ALSAC has partnered with the City of Memphis for the second year in a row by hiring 20 high school interns to gain valuable work experience through the Memphis MPLOY Program. We are proud and honored to be a part of this initiative to professionally develop young Memphis residents.
At ALSAC/St. Jude, our goal is simple: raise the funds and awareness necessary to operate and maintain St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
We seek dynamic fundraisers, marketers and support staff to help us fulfill this goal and ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
We offer career opportunities and internships at our Memphis, Tennessee, headquarters and in 30+ offices in nearly all major U.S. cities including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami as well as Puerto Rico.
ALSAC is an equal employment opportunity employer. ALSAC does not discriminate against any individual with regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, transgender status, disability, veteran status, genetic information or other protected status.
Culture is defined by people. It's what they believe, how they act, what they work toward and how they treat each other. At ALSAC, we strive to live by our six Culture Pillars, the qualities that set the foundation for our success.
People First: Success comes from having a great staff that's valued, treats each other with respect and whose input and contributions are recognized.
Strategic: Success doesn't just happen. We plan, measure and analyze so we can achieve our goal: Saving children's lives.
Innovative: We create ways for you to share your ideas and turn those into initiatives to help the kids of St. Jude.
Collaborative: Our environment gives you the space to collaborate with other team members to turn good ideas into great ideas.
Working Without Silos: We work across divisions to create better campaigns, events and processes and to be good stewards of our donors' gifts.
High Performing: Knowing we're helping kids fight cancer motivates us all to perform at our best and strive for excellence each and every day.
ALSAC/St. Jude offers a comprehensive benefits package to meet the varied needs of our dedicated and highly motivated employees, including paternity leave for new dads in our workforce and family sick time to allow staff to take time from work to care for loved ones.
Health and Wellness: An on-campus wellness center is free for employees to use and includes a variety of health and fitness classes as well as equipment for individual use. There are mile-marked walking paths both indoors and outside, and bicycles and helmets are available for use throughout the 62-acre campus and to off-campus office destinations. During the local growing season – from spring through fall – employees can shop weekly at an on-campus farmers market.
Professional development: Attracting and keeping high-performing employees is key to ALSAC’s success, and employees are encouraged to pursue career and leadership development opportunities. ALSAC offers on-the-job learning experiences through courses and individual learning, as well as formal professional development options.
Employee recognition: ALSAC values the contributions of every employee and sets aside time to recognize work anniversaries and special efforts by our staff. Service award programs are held quarterly to celebrate employees reaching milestone anniversaries, and dinner is held for those employees reaching anniversaries of 15 years and beyond. The CEO regularly celebrates outstanding employee efforts with additional time off.
Work environment: ALSAC gives employees the option of dressing casual at work; when appropriate, business casual attire is the norm. Employees also can enjoy dining at St. Jude’s Kay Kafe as well as two Starbucks locations. Local food and restaurant vendors visit campus daily during the work week, offering specials from BBQ to vegetarian fare. In addition, the St. Jude Gift Shop offers an employee discount on purchases. Other amenities include on-campus auto detailing, dry cleaning pickup and drop-off, and book and gift fairs.
Community service: ALSAC leadership encourages service in the local community, whether at headquarters in Memphis, Tennessee, or in any of our more than 30 regional offices across the country. During the last fiscal year, ALSAC employees volunteered nearly 22,000 hours in community service, helping 400 organizations in local communities around the U.S. A highlight of ALSAC’s National Training Meeting every year is the community service project, which has supported such programs as homeless shelters, veterans’ organizations and schools.
I have been working at ALSAC/St. Jude Children's Research Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)
Organization continues to grow and drive change to support the significant expansion of St. Jude to help kids worldwide; employees are given tons of resources to learn and grow; executives lead open Town Halls with all employees and are available for coaching and mentoring; have strong resources to do my job and empowerment to suggest change; colleagues treat each other like family; and diversity and inclusion is a priority that is celebrated here so everyone feels valued and appreciated.
None I can think of. This is a mission where kids and families lives are at stake so you have to understand the importance of your work and approach it with excellence.
Advice to Management
Continue servant leadership and creating a people first culture. Appreciate all you do.
I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ALSAC/St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Memphis, TN) in February 2018.
Because it is important to determine fit, I hoped to get to interview and meet several potential colleagues and that did happen throughout the process. Although the process did take time, it progressed as expected for a professional position and the hiring team kept me updated regarding next steps.
I did receive an offer and started as planned. It is truly an incredible mission with smart colleagues and everything I hoped for in my professional career.
