Joe Kirwin


Your role and responsibilities

As CEO, my role is to lead the company in our mission of raising awareness of the symptoms of pancreatic cancer.
I seek to find great support from UK-wide specialists and leading researchers to develop key pancreatic cancer facts and statistics regularly requested by the media at home and abroad.

Describe yourself in 5 words

Passionate, Creative, Nimble, Dedicated, Loyal 

Why did you pick to work at PCA?

Pancreatic cancer has the worst survival rate of all the most common cancers, pancreatic cancer receives only 3% of the UK cancer research budget and symptom awareness is low amongst the public. 

I wanted to work Pancreatic Cancer Action because they are laser focused on improving early diagnosis, supporting patients, and saving lives.

What are your hobbies and interests?

If I get the chance, I like to wind down after work by putting my feet up, with a cup of tea and a good book. At the weekend I catch up with friends, go on long walks and if I can, cap it off by watching some classic Doctor Who.
