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 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. 



The Programme Manager role will be crucial to the success and development of the charity. You will be responsible for the management and delivery of our most established programme in Ghana, ensuring projects are delivered on time, on budget and to high quality. The role will include responsibility for building relationships with partners and potential new partners. The successful candidate will contribute to seeking out further grant opportunities within the sector, working closely with the rest of the programme team and the fundraising team.
