BOPA is looking for new committee members who are dedicated to furthering the association’s aims and who are willing, and able, to spend time helping to run the organisation.

Web conferences can be accessed from anywhere that has a phone and a computer. You will be expected to attend a minimum of 50% of committee meeting every year, and everyone gets a chance to lead on something from our work plan.

This is a really exciting opportunity to shape the BOPA work plan as well as giving you great experience of working at a national level and building links and relationships with colleagues from across the UK.

• New to oncology representative (up to 2 years oncology experience)
