New Business Manager at national cancer charity

Faye Forde joins Mesothelioma UK to help run the charity’s business operations

Mesothelioma UK has appointed Faye Forde as its new Business Manager. Faye will work with the charity’s seven-strong Operations Team to manage its business operations and help it to achieve its business goals.

Mesothelioma UK funds 18 Clinical Nurse Specialists for mesothelioma patients, based in NHS Trusts around the UK. The charity hopes to increase this number to 30 and also to raise £1 million for research into better treatment and care.

Before joining Mesothelioma UK, Faye Forde worked as an Operations Manager for a visual communications company. Faye brings previous experience in office and operational management to her new role and has also previously worked in retail management.

Faye’s responsibilities will include streamlining the internal systems and processes, managing the workload of the teams, and ensuring the charity is compliant and working in accordance with best practice for Charity Governance Code. She will also work to recruit new trustees, volunteers and interns.

Faye commented: “I’ve always wanted to work in the non-profit sector. I have a drive to help others and contribute to something that has a real, positive impact on people. Mesothelioma UK does some amazing work and makes a difference to people and I’m looking forward to being part of that.”

Liz Darlison, Mesothelioma UK Head of Services, said: “We are delighted to welcome Faye to the Mesothelioma UK team. Her skills and experience will introduce much needed streamlined systems and processes to help the charity work toward its vision in the most effective way possible.”
