Cancer Changes Everything. So can you.

Join our team today.

Looking to make a difference in the fight against cancer, make friends, and gain leadership experience? UBC Cancer Association wants you to join our team! We are recruiting for both our Relay for Life Committee, our elected executive team, and an animator for Cancer Decoded. Check out all three opportunities down below!


Becoming an executive for UBC Cancer Association requires commitment and initiative. 



Relay for Life vs Executive Elections vs Cancer Decoded

Relay for Life is a big one-day event which requires planning starting a year in advance. You will help plan the event during the summer 2019 and 2019 school year, leading up to the event in 2020.

Executive election self-nominations are now closed. The Annual General Meeting is on March 20th from 5:30-6:30 in LIFE 1505! 

Cancer Decoded Animator is a technical position within the Cancer Decoded team that we are looking to fill! Familiarity with Adobe After Effects and Illustrator for creation of 2D animation (or the ability to self-teach) is required. 


Interviews will happen after the application deadline passes. Our interviews are casual and you should not dress up for the chat. Be prepared to talk about your ideas for the position you applied for, and think about possible pitfalls for the idea and how to overcome them. If you don’t hear back from us, don’t hesitate to shoot us an email. Applicants in the past not received our emails (i.e. gone to spam, never checked their inbox), so be proactive! 

Relay for Life Hiring 2019/20

For 20 years, Relay For Life has been the Canadian Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event. UBC Cancer Association is bringing this event to Vancouver in March 2020. 

UBC Relay for Life is a sub-committee of UBCCA that takes on the planning and execution of Relay for Life at UBC. This is a 1-year commitment where you will be working closely with the Relay for Life co-chairs to plan, lead and fundraise. Ready to apply?
