You can help us to Make 2nds Count!


We are a patient and family focused charity dedicated to giving hope to women and men living with secondary breast cancer.  It would be impossible for us to continue achieving our goals without our dedicated and passionate team of employees, board members and volunteers!

No day is the same here at Make 2nds Count, if you are forward thinking and committed to helping to raise awareness of incurable secondary breast cancer then we would love to hear from you!

We offer a variety of paid job roles and volunteer opportunities. 

Research Manager

We fund a range of research studies and are now looking to recruit an individual to lead these research projects on behalf of the charity. Our projects include funding a pHD student who is conducting early lab-based research into ER+ secondary breast cancer; funding vital patient surveys e.g. investigating patient experiences of clinical trials and are currently piloting an innovative new Patient Trials Advocate (PTA) service in partnership with the NHS.  The PTA service raises awareness of research amongst patients and helps match them to relevant clinical trials.  We have one nurse in place and are expanding the service in 2022 and the pilot will be a key responsibility of the research coordinator post.
