Today, 12 children and young people will be diagnosed with cancer. We’ll stop at nothing to make sure they get the right care and support at the right time.

When a child or young person is diagnosed with cancer, their whole world can feel like it’s falling apart. Their anxieties are deep. Their education, mental health and social lives suffer. Their futures feel very uncertain. They need tailored psychosocial support and they need to know that their voices and unique needs are being heard and understood. We’re there to make sure that happens.

We know what a better future could look like for children and young people with cancer. And we know what we need to do to make that future a reality. We know we need to push harder, reach further and work smarter. And we know we need the right people on our team to help us get there. People like you.

About the role

At Young Lives vs Cancer, we know that children, young people and parents with lived experience of childhood cancer are the best people to guide and shape the work that we do. A commitment to Voice is a commitment to listening to, collaborating with and championing the people we support to create meaningful change and a better future for all children and young people living with or after cancer.

As Voice Manager, you will work with the Head of Voice to deliver our Voice strategy and deliver a high-quality Voice team in order to enable young cancer patients and their families to have a stronger voice, inside and outside the organisation - not just to contribute, but also to challenge, giving the power to them to amplify their voice and make positive change.

Our Voice team is a key part of the Policy, Communications and Voice Directorate, which synthesises our policy, research, campaigning, voice, media & brand, digital and communication work. If you want to join us in working together to build a strong, effective system of support for young cancer patients and their families, we want to hear from you.

• Service user involvement and youth participation
• Communicating with different audiences and building strong relationships with internal and external stakeholders
• Collaborating with and influencing colleagues and beneficiaries to support involvement and co-production
• Managing a team / line management experience
• Sound written communication skills, including report writing and writing for digital channels
• Using digital platforms/CRM systems to build and engage networks and communities (desirable)

Young Lives vs Cancer is open to and in support of flexible working. Your flexibility requirements and that of the role will be discussed at interview stage with you.

This role is home-based and can be based anywhere in the UK with occasional visits to Young Lives vs Cancer workplaces.

Interviews are planned to take place on 29th April.
