Job Title Streaming Volunteer
Job Description

Cancer Research UK is looking to increase fundraising from a selection of streaming fundraising ideas that have been designed to be authentic and audience-led. The aim is to provide its audiences with relevant streaming fundraising ideas that meet both their needs and existing behaviours.

It needs somebody to build understanding around the following three key areas: driving growth, build authenticity and be community-led. It's entirely voluntary and you could stop at any time.

What you’ll be doing

Helping Cancer Research UK define what a portfolio of streaming products looks like by sharing first-hand experience and knowledge.

  • Join in 1-to-1 and group conversations with Cancer Research UK and other streamers to help understand the needs, barriers and motivations of the audience.
  • Share with Cancer Research UK your experience of charity streaming: what works well, what needs improvement.
  • Join workshops to generate initial streaming product ideas with other volunteers and Cancer Research UK, to help shape future opportunities.

Looking for volunteers who meet the criteria below:

  • Regularly stream themselves on a recognised streaming platform (e.g. Twitch, YouTube, Facebook Gaming)
  • Have previously streamed for charity, or are actively interested in doing so (does not have to be for Cancer Research UK)
  • You must be 18 or over to take part in this opportunity

"At Cancer Research UK we value diversity and we're committed to creating an inclusive culture where everyone is able to be themselves and to reach their full potential. We actively encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and cultures and believe that volunteers from a diverse background will help us to beat cancer sooner."
