Myeloma UK

Charity registered in Scotland SC026116

Myeloma UK is the only organisation in the UK dealing exclusively with myeloma – the second most common form of blood cancer. It originates in the bone marrow and currently affects around 17,500 people in the UK. Whilst treatable, myeloma is not yet curable. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure. We are dedicated to ensuring that patients get access to the right treatment at the right time, and to improving standards of treatment and care through research, education and awareness raising. We also provide a range of information and support services to patients, family and friends to help deal with a diagnosis of myeloma.

Myeloma UK is the only organisation in the UK dealing exclusively with the blood cancer myeloma and related conditions. We are committed to bringing together the best and brightest people to help us ensure that every patient has an empowered present and a hopeful future. We are now looking to appoint three new Trustees to join our Board.

To realise our long-term ambition to make myeloma history, we relentlessly pursue better outcomes for myeloma patients and patients with related conditions through a comprehensive early diagnosis programme, a unique research portfolio, our treatment access strategy, information and support services, and healthcare improvement services.

As part of our Board, you will share responsibility for offering us strategic direction and a commitment to good governance and financial health. Your experience, skills, and networks will help inform Myeloma UK’s decision making and delivery. Your commitment to our patients and to working as part of a dynamic, co-operative team will reflect our culture.

Experience in digital transformation and IT, policy and influencing, or income generation and philanthropy is of particular interest to us.

We’re interested in people who have helped charities and organisations achieve their ambitions, be that through professional or lived experience. We know a team needs different talents and we’d like to hear about what makes you exceptional - your skills, your interests, your experience and your values. We’re committed to reflecting the whole myeloma community in our structure, so we particularly encourage applications from black and ethnic minority communities and from people with disabilities.
