Worldwide Cancer Research is a small charity with immense ambition – to end cancer by starting new cancer cures worldwide. We find and fund innovative ideas at the start of the cancer research journey all over the world. Starting the life-saving advances of the future by sowing the seeds of new discoveries today. Funding brand new ideas and supporting researchers who ask big, challenging, new questions about how cancer works and how we can control it.
For 40 years our scientists have explored brand new concepts and advanced our understanding of cancer – taking the first step in the research journey that provides new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. As a charity, we are committed to opportunity without barriers, and we are striving to seek, value and learn from different perspectives and experiences.
We want Worldwide Cancer Research to be an inclusive organisation – where everyone can be themselves and feel valued. We strive to ensure our team feels fully supported to fulfil their role without discrimination, as we know how important the role of every individual within the charity is in starting new cures; without them, we wouldn’t exist. If you want to speak to the CEO, you can. If you want to speak to the research team, you can. If you want to share your story, there will always be someone to listen.
We are determined that all applicants and employees receive equitable, fair treatment regardless of gender, sex, age, disability, religion, belief, sexual orientation, marital status or race. We have pledged to ‘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.
We welcome applications from all communities to help build an inclusive team, as diverse as the scientific community we fund and the families whose lives we impact. To find out more about what it’s like to be part of Team Worldwide, contact email@example.com.

Sadly, 1 in 2 people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. That's why we vow to keep funding more lifesaving research projects into any type of cancer, anywhere in the world. We won't stop until cancer does.
At Worldwide Cancer Research, we believe in providing a work-life balance that allows our pioneering and spirited Curestarters to make a real difference whilst having a fulfilling and rewarding time.
