Join Big C’s Board of Trustees
Make a real difference to those in our community affected by cancer...
Norfolk’s cancer charity, Big C, is looking for enthusiastic and innovative people to join their Board of Trustees and help steer the strategic future of the organisation at what is an exciting time for the charity.
Big C is looking to fill four specialist vacancies and is keen to hear from anyone over 18 who has experience at a strategic or senior level management in Clinical Research, Education (primary or secondary), Fundraising, GP or Public Health Professionals.
Big C’s Chief Executive, Dr Chris Bushby, said “The new Trustees will be joining Big C at a pivotal moment in its history as we forge ahead with our focused programme of strategic growth and positioning. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved over the last 38 years, but as an organisation we very firmly look forward to our next developments in delivering outstanding and pioneering cancer care in Norfolk and Waveney.”
From its first small, but important, fundraising project providing chemotherapy equipment at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, Big C has grown into an impressive organisation which funds specialist life-saving equipment and internationally significant research projects based at the Norwich Research Park. These projects greatly benefit local people and have a global impact on our understanding and treatment of the many types of cancer.
The charity has also established four Big C Support and Information centres across Norfolk which, last year, were visited more than 25,000 times, providing an oasis of specialist emotional and practical support for those with a cancer diagnosis and their loved ones.
