About us
Child Cancer Foundation is a New Zealand charity that provides support to children and families on their cancer journey. We support them every step of the way, helping them overcome challenges and maintain control of their lives.

We focus on the whānau, not the cancer. No two families’ experiences are the same, and neither is the nature of the support they need.

Our vision is ‘To walk alongside and support all children and their families on their cancer journey and advance improvements to... child cancer care’.

We are guided by our values that help us deliver our vision. Our values are:
• Whakapono | Belief
• Tautiaki | Trust
• Ngākau Aroha | Empathy

Each and every role play an integral in what we do.

This is a hands-on role that will also work closely with the wider Marketing & Fundraising team. No two days are the same, this role has a wide scope and requires the ability to work across multiple projects and initiatives with passion and excitement will not forgetting to execute with precision.

This role will require the occasional weekend and evening work.
