Why we need you 

Relay For Life is an overnight community event that celebrates cancer survivors, remembers those lost and rallies everyone to fight back so we can bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. 

Each Relay is a community-led, non-athletic event where teams set up camp and take it in turns to walk around a track for up to 24 hours to signify that ‘cancer never sleeps’. 

Relay For Life generates £3 million in vital funds and through our research, we’ve helped double UK cancer survival over the last 40 years. These events are only made possible thanks to the dedication and skills of our brilliant volunteers, and we’re looking for more amazing people to join the team. 


What will you be doing? 

  • Keeping up to date with the central Cancer Research UK social media accounts and reposting appropriate content for your community
  • Spotting opportunities and online trends to boost the number of local followers we have on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Getting to grips with the Cancer Research UK brand guidelines so you’re able to post in a consistent tone of voice with the rest of the organisation
  • Promoting the team’s fundraising activities, on social media, and encouraging traffic to the website.


The type of person we are looking for 

  • Organisation and reliability are key to building a local online presence.
  • Creative and fun communication skills
  • Be willing to track your impact using the built in social platform reporting tools
