About this opportunity

PanKind, The Australian Pancreatic Cancer Foundation, is a national cancer charity dedicated to working towards a mission to dramatically increase survival rates and quality of life for people impacted by pancreatic cancer.

A recent report released by The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare confirms pancreatic cancer is now the third biggest cancer killer in Australia in 2022 which is on track to claim more lives than breast cancer and prostate cancer.

We embrace diversity, celebrate our differences, and inspire each person to be their authentic self at work. PanKind is one of Australia’s fastest-growing and innovative charities, which lives and breathes its organisational values each day. (Fearless, Human, Innovative, Impactful, determined)
