Who are Worldwide Cancer Research?

We start new cancer cures

The research journey is a long one and we sit at the very beginning. We fund fresh new cancer research ideas with the aim of making breakthrough discoveries that will lead to future cancer cures.

We have a global outlook

We know the best ideas in cancer research won’t be limited to one country, they could come from any scientist in the world. We’ve backed scientists across 35 different countries since we were founded 40 years ago.

We fund research into all cancers

There are over 200 types of cancer, and no magic bullet will cure them all. To be truly open to the best, most innovative ideas, we don’t focus on a particular cancer type. In fact, much of the research we fund could ultimately help treat or prevent many types of cancer.

The team of just 45 people punches well above its weight. Since its inception the charity has funded a total of 2000 projects and £200M of cancer research worldwide. WCR's ambition is to quadruple research funding over the next decade so that we can kickstart 100 new ideas a year, every year.

The Board of Trustees is looking for a Fundraiser with an outstanding track record to join them on this exciting journey. Applicants do not need to be based within the UK (GMT) but should check time difference etc before applying.

Worldwide Cancer Research are working in partnership with AWS Charity Jobs for this position. 

Shortlisted Applicants will meet with the Board Sub Committee on Wednesday 1st June (AM)

*The successful applicant must be available to attend the 28th July Board Meeting
