Become a Trustee for the UK’s largest breast cancer charity
We’re Breast Cancer Now, the charity that’s steered by world-class research and powered by life-changing care. We’re the place to turn to for anything and everything to do with breast cancer. However someone is experiencing breast cancer, we’re here.
We believe that we can change the future of breast cancer and make sure that, by 2050, everyone diagnosed with breast cancer will live – and be supported to live well. But when it comes to breast cancer, there’s no time to waste. That’s why we’re called Breast Cancer Now.
We have the opportunity to appoint a Trustee to join our Trustee Board, bringing a blend of experience and expertise to help ensure the charity continues to have maximum impact as well as overseeing the fantastic work being undertaken by our dedicated staff, volunteers and supporters, which is to save and improve the lives of those diagnosed and affected by breast cancer.
Our Trustee Board meets six times a year, normally in London. In addition to this, you will also be a member of the Finance and Investment Committee, with the possible opportunity to chair the Committee in the future. Membership of other sub-committees, where appropriate, will be dependent on your areas of expertise and at the request of the Chair. Sub-committees meet two to three times a year.
The successful candidate must be a qualified accountant with extensive financial expertise and have:
- Governance and senior executive experience at Board level;
- The ability to use their skills to ensure good governance through their strategic insight, sound advice and constructive challenge to help the Trustee Board undertake their responsibilities of scrutiny and support.
Ideally candidates will have:
- Investments experience
- Personal direct or indirect experience of breast cancer and/or of using the organisation’s services.
The Trustee Board welcomes applications to extend the diversity of its membership and expertise from all sectors of the community.
