Join the team

Want to be a part of a dynamic and evolving team where you can make a difference? Join us at the forefront of the battle to defeat brain tumours.

As a result of our ambitious five-year strategy to double survival from brain tumours and halve the harm they cause to quality of life, we have a range of new and exciting roles on offer at The Brain Tumour Charity.

Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40 in the UK. We are the UK's largest dedicated brain tumour charity, committed to fighting brain tumours on all fronts. We're looking for talented individuals to join our pioneering, passionate and growing team as we seek to accelerate change for those affected.

Located in Farnborough, just half-an-hour outside of London by train, our dedicated team spend their days funding pioneering research, raising awareness of the symptoms and effects of brain tumours and providing support and information for those affected. With over 10,600 people receiving the devastating diagnosis of a brain tumour each year, and over 5,000 losing their lives to this disease, we need to act fast to guarantee change.

If you have the passion, drive and determination to help us step forward in the battle to defeat brain tumours, then we'd love to hear from you.

Our team

Here at the Brain Tumour Charity, our diverse team come from all walks of life. From doctors, marketing specialists and corporate professionals to those who have been personally affected by the loss of a loved one from a brain tumour, we are united in our battle to defeat this devastating disease.

We are a pioneering, passionate, collaborative and smart team. Along the way, we face many tough challenges but fun is always on the agenda. A positive team environment is a productive and successful one.

Here's what some of our team have to say about working at The Brain Tumour Charity:

“I'm responsible for processing donations to The Brain Tumour Charity. I really enjoy reading all the letters we receive, our supporters and fundraisers are so inspiring. No matter how big or small a donation I'm processing, there is a personal story behind each one. I enjoy being part of an exciting and passionate team who are reaching for the same goal; to defeat brain tumours."

Ayesha Regula, Fundraising Officer

“My day to day to role here means that I provide support and information to anyone affected by a brain tumour diagnosis. I love the feeling of helping people individually with their journey, as difficult as that can be. Working here has also given me the chance to get involved in lots of different things. Helping at The Twilight Walks with hundreds of volunteers and walkers is a highlight of my year. It has opened my eyes to the fantastic work that is being done throughout the organisation and the bravery of our beneficiaries".

Cameron Miller, Information & Support Services Manager

"I originally joined The Brain Tumour Charity to develop the HR function, this was my first venture into the charity sector and was an exciting, enlightening and incredibly rewarding experience. I was however, lured by the corporate world and left the Charity after two years to explore an opportunity to develop my HR career. It didn't take me long to recognise that the corporate environment didn't offer anywhere near the job satisfaction and sense of fulfilment professionally and personally that somewhere as unique and innovative as The Brain Tumour Charity provided me with. I've now returned to the Charity in a different role as Support Development Advisor as this is a place where your talent, potential and transferable skills are valued and recognised and has led to a fantastic new opportunity for me which I'm relishing. I am absolutely delighted to have been welcomed back into this amazing Charity where it is possible to make a difference every day."

Eve Kelleher, Support Development Advisor
