Brain Tumour Research is an ambitious charity, passionate about finding a cure for brain tumours through the establishment of dedicated Brain Tumour Research Centres of Excellence around the UK and challenging the Government and larger cancer charities to increase the national investment for research into brain tumours to £35 million a year and bring parity with other cancers.

Brain Tumour Research Trustee

Intelligent, influential, and focused trustees wanted for game-changing yet embracing charity

Brain Tumour Research is the only national charity in the UK focused on finding a cure for all types of brain tumours through campaigning to increase the national investment in brain tumour research to £35 million per year, while fundraising to create a network of seven sustainable Brain Tumour Research Centres of Excellence across the UK.

Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer… yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease since records began in 2002.

All of us at Brain Tumour Research are passionate about finding a cure for this devastating disease.

We are now looking to strengthen and complement our Board with the addition of three new Trustees with experience in one or more of these skills:

  • Disease specific discovery and translational research funding
  • Digital marketing and AI
  • Organisational strategy, management, and governance

The Board of Trustees plays a key role in the growth of the charity, setting the overall strategic direction and providing scrutiny to our processes and decisions as well as ensuring standards of governance are upheld.

This role is pro-bono with meetings held three times a year in Milton Keynes. You will also be expected to attend the annual Board away day and be a member of at least two of our sub-committees. In addition, Trustees are given the opportunity to work together through invites to our annual members and research workshops as well as receptions at our Research Centres and parliamentary events.

First time trustees will be considered and full induction and training will be provided.

To apply: Please send your CV with a covering letter, demonstrating how you could add value to our organisation, to our Chief Executive, Sue Farrington Smith MBE, on Closing Date Sunday 11th June.
