Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust
The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust is a national charity that empowers young people aged 8-24 to embrace their future after cancer. When treatment ends the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust’s work begins, as for many young people picking up where they left off before their diagnosis isn’t possible.

Through the Trust’s sailing and adventure trips, young people are empowered as they make friends with others who have been through the same thing, rediscover their independence and learn new skills. Most importantly, they stop feeling like the ‘only one’. They discover a future they might never have thought was possible.

This is an incredible chance to be part of a passionate, motivated, and collaborative team and to play an integral role in helping to change the lives of young people in recovery from cancer.

You will also help drive our three strategic Ambitions to:

  • Secure a diverse and robust income stream
  • Improve the impact of our work
