Partnership Manager | Childhood Cancer Parents Alliance (CCPA)

Stafford-based charity the Childhood Cancer Parents Alliance (CCPA) supports families following a childhood cancer diagnosis. Our office is based in the same building as our commercial operation (charity shop, ebay/Vinted selling hub) and Super-hero themed family room where we welcome our many families of children with cancer for fun activities. The role is primarily office-based with some travel anticipated.

CCPA has a strong supporter-base locally, allowing the charity to provide days out, parties, treats and many activities to promote well-being and peer-support, all of which are much-needed after a devastating diagnosis of childhood cancer in the family. In 2023 we launched the ‘Max & Flo Kindness Fund’ named after 2 young cancer patients that sadly passed away within days of eachother earlier that year. This fund allows us to provide financial support to CCPA families who may be struggling. Our aim is expand that fund and also the activities we provide for our families and this new role will play a key part in enabling this to happen.

The CCPA Team is a small but hardworking and committed one and we welcome applicants with a flexible approach to work and a willingness to succeed and to really make a difference to the lives of families of children with cancer.
