Work for The Eve Appeal

Treasurer Trustee

The Eve Appeal is recruiting a voluntary Treasurer Trustee.

We are the leading UK national charity funding research and raising awareness into the five gynaecological cancers – womb, ovarian, cervical, vulval and vaginal.

The Eve Appeal was set up to prevent gynaecological cancers and save lives by funding ground-breaking research focused on developing effective methods of risk prediction, earlier detection and developing screening for all of the five gynae cancers. We have played a crucial role in providing seed funding, core infrastructure funding and project funding in addition to campaigning to raise awareness. The world-leading research that we fund is ambitious and challenging but our vision is simple: A future where fewer women develop and more women survive gynaecological cancers.

We are now looking to strengthen our Board and are seeking a Treasurer – a qualified Accountant, ideally with an understanding of Charity SOPR and charity finance experience. You will lead the Board’s duty to ensure proper accounting records are kept, financial resources are controlled and invested in line with governance, strategy, legal and regulatory requirements. You will have exceptional communication, interpersonal and analytical skills with the ability to ensure decisions are actioned in a timely manner.

This is a volunteer role, but all reasonable expenses are reimbursed. The role will provide you with a great deal of experience and satisfaction, and the opportunity to develop your skills and utilise your expertise and knowledge.

People from all backgrounds are welcomed, as The Eve Appeal aspires to have a diverse board that reflects their clients and communities.

Closing date 31 January 2021.

In 2020 we raised £109,000 from trusts and foundations, and other grant givers. Now, as we enter in to 2021 we are recruiting for a Trusts and Foundations Prospecting Volunteer to support our Trusts and Foundations Officer in developing our growing portfolio and achieving our income target to ensure our lifesaving work can continue.

To support this area of fundraising during these uncertain times we would like to draw on the skills of an experienced prospect researcher or someone looking to develop their skills in prospect research and gain familiarity with the broader landscape of medical research and healthcare funding.We’re willing to be truly flexible for the right candidate as we appreciate this role may need to be worked around other commitments we know people could be juggling such as a paid work, job applications, childcare and home-schooling, but we’d envisage 2-3 hours a week at times to suit you over the course of a month.

We are looking for a commitment of 3 months but again are willing to be flexible as we appreciate other or unknown circumstances may dictate your availability at this time.
