We’ve been delivering care and support to patients with cancer in North East hospitals for over 37 years. Our services have mainly been delivered in Oncology Day Units and Macmillan Centres but, in the midst of great changes, we need experienced professionals who are passionate about making a difference to peoples’ lives.

We’re looking to recruit four individuals to formally join our Executive Committee in 2020. Prior Trustee experience isn’t necessary as we’ll be offering full training, but your skills and experience in areas such as Quality, Law, PR, or knowledge of working with the NHS is vital to our future success.

With a small team of 30 staff and volunteers and a new Chief Executive who has instigated a significant change programme, we’ve introduced new systems, policies, processes and training to bring us up to date in all areas.

We’ve just launched our new website with a new logo and communications plan to increase general awareness and understanding about our services. We are planning to move to new offices and increase our services – and need to increase our board and strengthen our governance.

If you’d like to apply, please send a letter telling us why you are interested and what you would bring to the role.

Don’t forget to enclose your CV, including two professional references.
