Job description

Main purpose of position

To lead the Philanthropy team in securing support and influence from individuals, Trusts and Foundations that enables us to achieve our vision of ‘until every child survives’.

Children with Cancer UK

Established in 1987, by our Chairman Eddie O’Gorman, following his youngest son Paul O’Gorman passing away from ALL, Children with Cancer UK has gone on to become a leading force in paediatric oncology.

In the last 32years we have raised a staggering £230m in the fight against childhood cancer. Over the years, working with the scientific community, we have made significant breakthroughs in the treatment of ALL, and have contributed to raising survival rates from 63% to 84%. Alongside this we have also invested in patient family accommodation and grants to families, in addition to supporting family days out and welfare programmes throughout the UK, helping them maintain as normal a life as possible during their child’s treatment.

We are moving into a new phase of growth and are investing in our teams to expand our reach, grow our awareness and deliver greater income. Our leading pillar of work continues to be research into the cause, treatment and cure of this cruel disease, and we will not stop until every child survives.

Organisational Objectives

  2. We will fund high quality research aimed at developing treatments which are not only more effective but less debilitating and disruptive to young lives
  3. We will contribute to peer reviewed research into the discovery and reduction of causes of cancer, including directly supporting the work of the International Agency for Research in Cancer (IARC, part of WHO)
  4. We will provide capital funding to encourage the development of centres of excellence in childhood cancer research
  5. We will raise public awareness about our activities and the results of relevant research
  6. We will continue to support respite homes and associated financial support for children and families affected by childhood cancer
  7. We will seek to influence the development of policy to promote the best interests of children with or at risk of cancer
  8. We will maintain a place in the top 100 UK charities, based on fundraising activity
