About World Child Cancer
Most childhood cancers are curable. We know this because survival rates in the UK and Europe regularly top 80%. But for children in low and middle-income countries, the prognosis is bleak with their chance of survival falling below 30%.
The solution? It already exists. The challenge is making sure that every child gets the diagnosis, treatment and care they need. Yet in many countries, public and professional awareness of childhood cancer is dangerously low. Opportunities for early diagnosis are missed. Referrals are delayed. And there are not enough health workers with the specialist skills to diagnose and treat the disease.
It is children and families that pay the price.
Determined to balance this inequality, World Child Cancer works with local, regional and international partners in some of the world’s poorest countries to improve: Treatment, early diagnosis, family support and advocacy.
Created in 2007, World Child Cancer is a small yet fast-growing, ambitious international charity.
World Child Cancer is looking for a self-motivated and enthusiastic person to take on the role of Programmes Intern. The successful candidate will get involved in all aspects of the charity’s programmes work, working closely with a team of experienced programme managers. As World Child Cancer is a small charity, our intern can expect to experience all areas of our work and gain good understanding of all elements of the charity.
The team is led by Joseph Dixon, Director of Programmes. You will report directly to the Psychosocial Support Advisor. However, you will have the opportunity to speak and support all members of the Programmes Team.
The role focusses on supporting country programme operations, with a specific focus on the psychosocial support work done by WCC, and will include the following:
- Report writing
- Content creation
There will also be the opportunity to support on and learn about:
- Social media
- Supporting team members
Fill in the application form below and we will be in touch soon.
