Chief Executive Officer

An exciting opportunity to lead an ambitious national cancer charity into the next phase of its growth and development.

The Lymphoma Association is working with Prospectus, a specialist charity sector recruitment agency, to recruit a new Chief Executive Officer.

The Lymphoma Association exists to support people affected by lymphoma, a group of illnesses that constitutes the fifth most common cancer in the UK, and the most common cancer in the under 30s. 125,000 people in the UK live with lymphoma, and we want to help more of them, and their families and carers. In addition, we engage in policy and lobbying work at government level and within the National Health Service with the aim of improving the patient journey and experience of people affected by lymphoma.

Chief Executive

Location: Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire

Salary: £70,000 – £75,000

Our Strategic Business Plan 2018-20 has some ambitious goals, mostly carrying forward new developments from 2017. In April we will be rebranding and re-launching our charity and in the following months there will be a series of events aimed at raising our profile and extending our reach among those affected by lymphoma, and of course taking every possible fundraising opportunity. We have begun a transformational strategic multi-year ICT programme, which will see the implementation of a new CRM system in 2018.

We look forward to appointing a new Chief Executive who will guide us through the challenges and opportunities that we see ahead. We need a truly exceptional individual: while making all the above happen, he or she must be a natural leader but also a sympathetic team player; with around 35 employees there is a clear collegiate feel to the office. The chief executive also has important outward-facing responsibilities and will need to build relationships with a wide range of stakeholders.

Closing date: Sunday 11 March 2018
