Ovacome is the national support charity for women with ovarian cancer, their family and friends. The charity provides support, information and education for those affected by the disease and to healthcare professionals.

We are seeking to appoint a new Trustee with experience of Marketing and Communications.  Board level experience is desirable but not essential for this role.  We would be particularly interested to talk to you if you have senior level experience in the fields of Marketing and Communications.

The successful applicant to this post will be keen to help us to achieve our aims and ensure the organisation is effectively managed. Your input will help determine the focus and direction of the organisation, enabling it to best serve women with ovarian cancer, their families and friends.

As a member of our Board you will be required to demonstrate a strong commitment to the purpose and continued development of Ovacome. Trustees are collectively responsible for setting the strategic aims and objectives the charity and ensuring that proper governance arrangements are in place. 

Ovacome is a national charity established in 1996 and is based in London; however as a Trustee it is not necessary for you to live in London. The role involves the use of emails, teleconferences and other occasional meetings as appropriate.  The time commitment is around 4 hours per month, occasionally more within your availability.

If you are prepared to give time and energy to directing our future and have an interest in overcoming ovarian cancer, then why not join our team.

Please note that this is a voluntary, unpaid position although expenses are reimbursed.
