Supporting Teams

Cancer Council Queensland’s Supporting Teams play a vital role in our daily operations and dispense important advice, not only within our organisation, but in Queensland’s political arena too.

The People (Employment and Volunteering) team look after employee recruitment, wellbeing, workplace relations, learning and development and Work Health and Safety. The team also oversees the recruitment, development, and engagement of Cancer Council Queensland volunteers, as well as supporting employees to deliver best practice volunteer engagement and supervision. With a workforce of 200 employees, 1100 regular volunteers and thousands of event volunteers, the People team work hard to ensure everyone completes the relevant training to feel comfortable in, and excel at, their roles.

The Advocacy team advocates for government and parliament to improve laws and policies concerning cancer care, prevention and research. This team are often seen out in the community, engaging local politicians in Cancer Council Queensland’s message and urging them to support our initiatives such as tightening public smoking laws.

The Governance and Legal team provides advice and assistance to the whole organisation and the Board and its committees in relation to legal compliance, governance, risk management, legal disputes, contracts, intellectual property and insurance.

The invaluable advice offered by our Supporting Teams ensures that Cancer Council Queensland upholds its reputation as a trusted source of information within the Queensland cancer community.
