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 newly created Senior Philanthropy and Partnerships Manager role will play a key part in raising income from companies, philanthropists and trusts to help achieve World Child Cancer’s mission. Working closely with the CEO, Head of Philanthropy and Partnerships and the Programmes Team, you will research, identify, cultivate and steward potential funders, develop high quality proposals and report on achievements.

The post holder will be passionate about enabling children with
cancer to have equitable access to quality treatment wherever they are born. We are looking for someone mostly experienced in corporate and philanthropy fundraising – and ideally in trusts fundraising as well, who is proactive, confident in engaging with high value funders, able to develop strong internal and external relationships, has strong verbal and written communication skills, a collaborative way of working and creative ways of thinking. An important part of the role will be to develop new business.

We are a small but ambitious and high performing team that contributes significantly to World Child Cancer’s annual income of c. £2m. This role has been newly created role in recognition of our historical success in securing high value funds and of the level of untapped opportunities we see in corporate and philanthropy fundraising.
