Work for The Eve Appeal

There are five gynaecological cancers – womb, ovarian, cervical, vaginal and vulval – but many women are unaware of this fact. In the UK alone, there are over 21,000 women who are sadly given the news that they’ve been diagnosed with a form of gynaecological cancer. This equates to 58 women being diagnosed, and sadly, 21 women losing their battle each day.

The Eve Appeal is the only UK national charity raising awareness and funding research in the five gynaecological cancers. It was set up to save women’s lives by funding groundbreaking research focused on developing effective methods of risk prediction, earlier detection and developing screening for these women-only cancers. Our vision is simple: a future where fewer women develop and more women survive gynaecological cancers.  A unique and often rewarding place to work, we are a small, yet enthusiastic and dedicated team alongside the amazing women we support.

Would you like to play an important role in supporting an organisation working for a future where fewer women develop and more women survive gynaecological cancers?

The Eve Appeal is the only UK national charity raising awareness and funding research into the five gynaecological cancers – womb, ovarian, cervical, vulval and vagina. We were set up to save women’s lives by funding ground-breaking research focused on developing effective methods of risk prediction, earlier detection and developing screening for these women-only cancers.

We are looking for a Director of Finance and Culture to join our dynamic team at The Eve Appeal, with prime responsibility for finance, HR, corporate services (including IT and facilities management), risk governance and programme delivery.

You’ll need to be motivated, flexible and well-organised, with a problem solving approach and the ability to multitask. This is a challenging but varied role – you’ll write papers for Board of Trustee meetings, ensure our next contract with our IT providers is fit for purpose, evaluate our progress in ensuring Eve is a great place to work and deliver our annual accounts and audit – so it’ll suit someone who enjoys working across different areas and is able to manage competing priorities.
