The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) is looking to recruit enthusiastic and dynamic volunteers who wish to strengthen their skills in event organisation by joining the team of one of the world’s leading health conferences: the World Cancer Congress. Volunteers will experience key roles and responsibilities which highly contribute to the final success of the event, ensuring the highest delegate satisfaction rate possible.


Where & When

The event will take place in Geneva from 17 to 19 September 2024 at the CICG - The International Conference Centre Geneva. The volunteers will be requested to be on-site between 4 and 8 hours max. (including breaks).


UICC is a non-governmental organisation based in Geneva which serves international cancer organisations to unite the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity and to ensure cancer continues to be a priority in the world health and development agenda.
