Role type:
Trustee / board member



Leuka is committed to improving the survival of patients with blood cancers. It does this by funding world-class research at a range of centres and by awarding grants to scientists and clinicians. They were looking for several new trustees who would contribute to further improving Leuka's governance and its longer-term strategic direction. The new trustees needed to have relevant marketing and/or fundraising expertise, or have come from another relevant commercial/business field.

"I was recommended to Nurole and have found the process of applying for roles to be easy and efficient. Having been involved with cancer charities previously, I was keen to be involved again and Leuka was a great fit. The pioneering research they do at Leuka is life-saving and I am delighted to be involved."

"I was made aware of your organisation while I was Vice-Chair at Prostate Cancer UK, and we used Nurole to recruit trustees, and for executive roles. As I had completed my period of tenure, I wanted to use my experience to support another charity. Nurole provides a continuously updated database of trustee roles, and I was able to identify a charity that would most benefit from my skills. I am now happily ensconced at Leuka, and fighting the good fight to find a cure for leukaemia."
