A flexible working policy is offered. The office will be open from 7am – 7pm daily. Due to Covid-19, the organisation is currently working remotely with the intention of returning to the office in the near term.  We then plan to trial a blend of office and home working in the hope we can establish this as a permanent arrangement that gives all members of Team Worldwide an improved work-life balance whilst also ensuring we can deliver the charity’s ambitious plans.

Who are we? Worldwide Cancer Research is the UK charity that will end cancer by starting cancer cures worldwide.

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.

Being a small charity with currently 44 employees allows us to be open, honest and personal with our supporters. Everyone who works for the charity plays a significant role – without them we wouldn’t exist.

At Worldwide Cancer Research we are committed to opportunity without barriers and we are always striving to do more to seek, value and learn from different perspectives and experiences. We know that lifesaving cancer research ideas can start anywhere, but we also know that right now some people are better placed to have their ideas heard – because of their background and the opportunities available to them.

We are committed to actively working to address this in a number of ways. As a first step, we are focusing on the promotion of diversity, fairness and equity in our recruitment processes, which is why we are delighted to share our pledge to always Show The Salary for the roles we advertise - because our team members are at the heart of everything we do to start new cancer cures around the world.

Scientists across the world are ready to conquer cancer. To help start more cancer cures and save lives, we are looking for a Content Manager to join our Brand Team.
