Self-nomination to join C/Can’s Board of Directors

Board of Directors in 2024

The City Cancer Challenge Foundation is accepting self nominations for new members to join the Board of Directors in 2024.

The Board of Directors act as the governance body of C/Can, supporting the CEO to achieve C/Can’s mission. You can see our current list of directors here

We are looking for senior candidates with strong governance capabilities and previous Board experience. Directors require a  broad understanding of the global health environment, with a preference for those who can bring a low-and middle-income country perspective and experience in an area of cancer control.  

This is a voluntary, non-remunerated role, although directors are remunerated for required travel and accommodation expenses. Each director operates as an individual, not as a representative of any organisation. The initial term of office is three years, with the potential for reappointment for an additional term of three years. 

Read the Terms of Reference for C/Can’s Board of Directors.

The submission is closed

The evaluation of new directors will be based on the skills and competencies required to ensure good governance of the organisation. There is an opportunity for candidates to demonstrate their expertise against these skills in the application form.

Shortlisted candidates will be required to provide a letter from their organisation supporting their participation on the Board, particularly around participation in Board meetings.

Note that we have a zero-tolerance policy for individuals who have prior or current links to the Tobacco, Alcohol and Arms industries.
