Job Description

Who we are

We're a community dedicated to beating blood cancer by funding research and supporting those affected. Since 1960, we've invested over £500 million in blood cancer research, transforming treatments and saving lives.

We are hugely proud of the impact we have had on behalf of people affected by blood cancer. The £500 million we have invested in research over the last 60 years has saved many thousands of lives, and we are now in a position where the day we will beat blood cancer is finally in sight. But with the coronavirus crisis already having had a big impact on our income, it is more vital than ever that we have the strong strategic leadership to keep our mission to beat blood cancer on course. As a Board, we know we need to become more diverse to better reflect the community we serve and share with us new ideas and opinions, so we would welcome approaches from the following:

  • Individuals from black and ethnic minority communities.
  • Younger people who may not have had previous board experience but have other experiences, for example: of committee work, associations and other team decision making experience.
  • Individuals who have personally been affected by blood cancer who have the capacity to support us as a trustee.
  • Experience in the following fields would be of interest to us: Medical Research, Audit and Finance.
  • Individuals who have experience of information support for blood cancer patients and health policy.
  • Influencers who have experience with fundraising and have celebrity or VIP connections that could be further explored.
  • Members of a minority group through physical or cultural characteristics.

This is a challenging but very rewarding role and your contribution could assist the blood cancer community in a huge way. If you would like an opportunity to make a difference and contribute in a positive way we would encourage you to initially get in touch by email to: recruitment@bloodcancer.org.uk for an informal discussion about the role. To apply for this exciting opportunity to join us as a trustee, please apply via the Trustees Unlimited website with your CV, along with a brief covering letter outlining your interest and how you feel you could add value to our cause. The closing date for this opportunity is midday on Saturday, 31 October 2020.
