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."
