To lead this effort, we are looking for a Zurich Coordinator to establish our presence and lead the development of our operations. S/he will be the main representative of the organisation in the Zurich region and will lead on partnerships and outreach, and contribute to fundraising and coordination of services.

  • Fluent English and German 
  • Proven experience in building and coordinating teams and developing an organisation

In addition, previous experience working with non-profits, experience related to cancer, health & wellbeing, as well as expertise in communications and data management tools are all advantages for a candidate.

The role will be mostly remote from home, with outreach and partnership work requiring in-person meetings in the Zurich region. Occasional travel within Switzerland will be needed. 

Depending on the growth and development of our operations, there may be a possibility of the role growing in the future.
