I found out about Tenovus Cancer Care from a news piece on the choirs, a week later I joined my local choir. From there I volunteered and saw how passionate everyone was about the charity and the people it supports. Whilst volunteering a role came up, I applied and was successful in getting the job. I really enjoy working here and doing my own little bit to help cancer patients and their families

Charlotte, Research and Support Admin Manager

I first found out about Tenovus Cancer Care as a service user. From there I liked what I saw and got more involved as an events volunteer in the Fundraising team. The people did it for me and I loved the feel about the place. It was somewhere I wanted to belong and I was lucky enough to get a job here using my HR skills for a cause I felt passionate about. I haven’t looked back since and am proud to be able to make a difference as a member of staff.

Nadine, HR & Volunteer Manager

I loved being a shop volunteer when I was a teenager so the charity was always important to me. It made me want to make a difference to the lives of people affected by cancer. That meant so much more to me when my dad was diagnosed with cancer. Now I work here I feel really lucky to be able to help people and raise the vital funds for our services.
