Jobs and Internships
In November 2014 Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer made the bold and exciting announcement to join forces to advance the interests of those affected by breast cancer. Despite the huge progress that science has made over the last 25 years, more women than ever are getting breast cancer and we predict that 184,000 lives will be lost to breast cancer by 2030. As the largest breast cancer research charity in the UK, we must rise to this challenge and change this unacceptable situation.
We are moving forward with the integration plans and believe the appointment of an inspirational and highly effective Chief Executive to be critical. This is a unique opportunity to lead the successful integration and launch of the new Charity as well as help shape the ongoing direction and future ambitions. The role demands an individual who combines leadership and entrepreneurial skills with the desire to make a positive impact on the lives of those affected by breast cancer.
The chosen candidate will be an experienced and well-rounded leader with strategic insight and strong operational capability gained in complex environments, including change management experience. The challenge of this new role requires the strength to make tough decisions and the ability to bring the team with her/him. The role responsibilities are wide-ranging from ambassador to advocate, fundraiser to relationship builder. S/he should possess high level collaborative skills for managing multiple stakeholder relationships, demonstrate strong people-related values and behaviours, bring an enthusiastic commitment to and excitement about the Charity's aims and have an appreciation of the value of medical research.
S/he will be working with a newly appointed Chair, a merged board drawn from the trustees of both current charities and the executive team to tackle the challenges ahead and to maximise the opportunities to accelerate progress in this important field of research.
