Nearly half of the cancers that affect women are specific to them – ovarian, womb, cervical, vulval and vaginal.
The Eve Appeal is a unique and focussed charity – we know exactly where we can make most difference and how we add value to the other incredible work that’s being undertaken around women’s cancers and research.
We support world-leading medical research into the early diagnosis, risk prediction and ultimately the prevention of women-specific cancers. In November 2014 The Eve Appeal commissioned an independent review of the quality and progress that our research is making in the understanding, risk prediction and earlier detection of women's cancers. The overall conclusion was:
"The review panel was convinced of the key role that funding from The Eve Appeal has played, and continues to play, in supporting the ambitious research programme. There is no doubt that this research is contributing to international understanding of gynaecological cancers and their management. It will have significant impacts. The Trustees of The Eve Appeal can be very satisfied with the return on the charity's investments in the last 5 years." Sir John Pattison, Chair, Review Panel, 2014
There are a minimum of 4 Board meetings a year held at central London locations. Where appropriate Trustees are asked to sit on other governing boards and committees. They are also encouraged to attend fundraising and research events, host / arrange meetings on behalf of the charity and meet with key staff throughout the year. Time commitment varies depending on projects but candidates should aim commit up to 10 days per year to the charity.
We are recruiting for Trustees to join our Board and work alongside a high-energy staff team, world-class scientists, committed volunteers and dedicated supporters, to realise our ambition – a world where fewer women die of a gynaecological cancer.
If you share our ambition and want to contribute your time, expertise and open up your networks, we would love to hear from you.
We welcome applications from candidates from all professional backgrounds but would particularly encourage those with expertise in the following areas to apply:
• Pharmaceuticals and biotech
• Fundraising, marketing and brand
• Corporate and commercial business development and leadership
• Clinicians working in gynae oncology
