Executive Director role

When Sophie Epstone set out to help her friend who was diagnosed with lymphoma in his 20s, she never planned to set up a charity. She wanted to do something to help after witnessing the lack of support he received, so she signed up to climb Mount Everest (obviously). But her friend’s diagnosis sparked something in Sophie, and not long after her first trek up to Everest, Trekstock was born.

Since the charity’s inception in 2009 and its mission to fill the huge gap in services for those diagnosed with cancer in their 20s or 30s, Sophie and Trekstock have changed the game for those living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis that comes when you’re just starting to figure life out. We’ve helped them get connected and get moving. We’ve answered the questions that they were asking when no one else would. We’ve helped them make sense of all of the peripheral stuff that happens in the aftermath of hearing the words “you have cancer”.

But there’s still so much to do. There are still 34 people in their 20s or 30s diagnosed with cancer every day. And as a small (but heavy lifting) team, we’re looking to evolve. That’s why we’re searching for an Executive Director to slot into our team to come on board and help us take Trekstock to the next level.

While Sophie will maintain responsibility for major relationships, special projects and communications, we’re looking for an inspiring, dynamic and visionary leader to take the helm of all things team and office management, finance and accounting and reporting into our energised Board of Trustees. 

Think you’ve got what it takes to help us expand and have a positive impact on the lives of more young adults diagnosed with cancer? We can’t wait to hear from you. Find out more and apply before 7th December.
