Who are we?
Recently named Third Sector Charity of the Year 2018, we are a rapidly growing charity, committed to moving further, faster to accelerate change for everyone affected by a brain tumour. Brain tumours kill more children and adults under 40 in the UK than any other cancer. We know that a cure can’t wait. By recruiting a team that ‘can’, we can and will find one sooner.

We need the inspired and the inspirational – the people who completely embrace our values, offer a great cultural fit and who are determined to make real and lasting change for our community.
According to the job description you should also possess excellent communication and project management skills and you must be able to build strong relationships with colleagues and stakeholders.
If this is for you, we’d love to hear from you!
What we'd like to give you:
- Salary c.£24,000 per annum (dependent on experience)
