Organisation Overview

Sadly, 1 in 2 people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. For us, that’s 1 in 2 too many.

We know that bold research will cure cancer. That’s why we fund the brightest minds around the world in their quests to conquer cancer.

Being a small charity with currently 40 employees allows us to be open, honest and personal with our supporters. Everyone who works for this charity plays a significant role – without them we wouldn’t exist. If supporters want to speak to the CEO, they can. If they want to speak to the Research team, they can. If they want to share their story, there will always be someone to listen.

Together We Can

Worldwide Cancer Research is a small charity with immense ambition – to see a day where no life is cut short by cancer - which is why we’re changing, and growing.

We are looking for individuals with true team spirit who thrive, not just survive, in a start-up environment. At this pivotal time for the charity, we need staff who see change as an opportunity to solve problems creatively, develop infrastructure, redefine processes and who will collaborate closely with colleagues in building a springboard to the charity’s future.

Adaptability and curiosity are vital in an environment that rewards continuous improvement.
As a small organisation looking to make a big impact on the world, this is a chance for professionals keen to work for the greater good. Professionals who see the potential of their own responsibilities, but in the spirit of our research, have the confidence to look beyond the ordinary to contribute meaningfully to the success of the charity as a whole.

Together We Are

Adaptable & Resourceful

We are not daunted by an environment of change, by resource pressures, by perfectionism or pessimism, but think creatively around problems to find realistic solutions that contribute to achieving the charity’s goals.  We think big picture but also work out the detail to get there.

Courageous & Entrepreneurial

We each have the initiative to drive forward our area of responsibility, the ownership to be held accountable for it, and the confidence to tackle problems promptly, honestly and constructively when they arise.

Curious & Reflective

We aspire to continually innovate and improve - learning from past actions, decisions and results, from others, and from the world around. We have a thirst for knowledge and desire to view challenges from different perspectives.

Genuine & Self-aware

We conduct ourselves with integrity, deliver on our commitments, and are aware of the effect of our behaviour and actions on others. We understands that mistakes happen and accept responsibility when they do.

Respectful & Collaborative

We see and value the benefit that a diversity of styles and experience brings to a team, and seek to play to individual strengths.  We recognise and credit others when they contribute to achieving the charity’s goals.
