Welcome to Tenovus Cancer Care


Dear applicant,

I'm delighted that you've chosen to apply for the role of Director of Income Generation at Tenovus Cancer Care.

As Wales' leading cancer charity, our strategy pivots around five key aims: to prevent cancer in the first place, to fund research so cancer can be better diagnosed and treated, to provide support and treatment to people affected by cancer, to represent the needs of cancer patients and their loved ones, and to develop our committed and engaged team.

Cancer is a global issue. The World Health Organisation estimated that 9.6 million people died from cancer in 2018, and that figure is set to rise. Closer to home, in the UK and Wales, around 360,000 and 19,000 people respectively are diagnosed and die with cancer annually. Every year, we are seeing more people diagnosed, which can be linked to increased awareness of the signs and symptoms, and better diagnostic techniques.

But thankfully, due to earlier diagnosis and better treatment, we are also seeing more people survive. This means that there are large numbers living with and beyond cancer, and the impact and effects of this can last for years.

We are working towards a time when no one dies of cancer. We've funded research for over 50 years because we know it's the key to improving diagnosis, treatment and care. And we're there at every stage of the cancer journey to treat, care and support. Our services are free, and available to anyone who needs them for as long as they need them.

You'll be joining us at an exciting time in our history. I joined Tenovus Cancer Care in May this year, and I am determined to build on the great work that has gone before, and that includes growing our income so that we can increase our reach and impact.

If you feel energised by the prospect of joining us, we would love to hear from you. You will be joining a great body of motivated and determined staff and volunteers in an organisation with a collaborative, friendly culture and a wonderful team spirit.

If you would like an informal, confidential conversation, please contact our retained consultant Ben Pountney at Harris Hill who will arrange this for you. We look forward to receiving your application.

Best wishes,


Judi Rhys, CEO, Tenovus Cancer Care
