About us

Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG) is a leading national charity and expert voice for all childhood cancers. 

Each week in the UK and Ireland, more than 30 children are diagnosed with cancer. Our network of dedicated professional members work together in treatment, care and research to help shape a future where all children with cancer survive and live happy, healthy and independent lives. 

We fund and support innovative world-class research and collaborate, both nationally and internationally, to drive forward improvements in childhood cancer. Our award-winning information resources help lessen the anxiety, stress and loneliness commonly felt by families, giving support throughout the cancer journey.

The Press and PR Communications Executive is a member of the CCLG Information, Communications and Marketing team which oversees our external and internal (membership) communications and produces our award-winning, quality assured patient information. This is a new role, consolidating tasks which are currently performed by other members of the team and by a third-party PR agency. The role will have a strong focus on raising awareness of CCLG and its work with key audiences, increasing engagement with our brand and supporting income generation.
