Staff at Target Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is a devastating disease. Most women are not diagnosed early enough and survival rates in the UK are among the worst in Europe. Funding for research into ovarian cancer is woefully inadequate; awareness of the disease, its risk factors and symptoms is critically low and new treatments are not being discovered quickly enough. So it’s hardly surprising that many women with ovarian cancer feel isolated and scared about what life has in store. But there is hope. Because there is Target Ovarian Cancer. 

Target Ovarian Cancer is the award-winning ovarian cancer charity that works across the whole of the UK. Started in 2009, we work to improve early diagnosis, to find new treatments, and to provide support to women with ovarian cancer. A truly rewarding place to work, our greatest strengths are our enthusiastic and committed team and the amazing women we work with and support.

Major Gifts Executive

An exciting opportunity has arisen at the UK’s leading ovarian cancer charity within the growing fundraising team.

Or indeed this may be a great opportunity to transfer to the charity sector and bring your client account management skills with you.
