Imagine a world where no life is cut short by cancer. Imagine being part of the team that works tirelessly to make that vision a reality.

Worldwide Cancer Research is a small charity with immense ambition - to see a day where no life is cut short by cancer. To bring that day closer the charity is changing, and growing.

Worldwide Cancer Research funds innovative cancer research all over the world, finding the best projects that sit right at the beginning of the research journey.

To help bring forward the day that no life is cut short by cancer, the charity is looking for a Science Communications Officer.

As Science Communications Officer, you will be part of the team responsible for delivering creative and engaging scientific content, for internal and external audiences to promote the charity’s research, fundraising initiatives and brand.

Applications are invited from candidates who have a first degree in a biomedical related field combined with excellent communication skills, both written and verbal. You will be able to produce inspiring content for a range of audiences and have real passion for the charity’s vision, mission and strategy.

We are all affected by cancer, wherever we live in the world, and it will take a worldwide movement to beat it.
