About the Charity
We are the only UK-wide charity for all those affected by a genetic bleeding disorder; a community of individuals and families, healthcare professionals and supporters.
For almost 70 years we have campaigned for better treatment, been a source of information and support, and raised the awareness of bleeding disorders.
Our Vision, Mission and Aims
Anyone affected by a genetic bleeding disorder has the opportunity to live a fulfilled life.
· Everyone affected by a bleeding disorder has equality of opportunity
· Everyone affected by a bleeding disorder has the opportunity to connect with others in the community
· Everyone affected by a bleeding disorder has the knowledge to feel empowered
We do this by:
- Raising awareness about bleeding disorders
- Providing information and support throughout our members lives.
- Influencing and advocating on health and social care policy and access to treatment
More than 30,000 men, women and children in the UK have a diagnosed bleeding disorder, and the number rises every year. Membership of The Haemophilia Society is free and open to all.
Our peer support through local groups around the UK, online community, and members events offer friendship and a listening ear when needed, as well as enabling people to share their views and experiences. By bringing people together for information and support at events tailored to support members throughout their lives, we amplify their voices to reduce isolation and influence government, welfare and health care policy.
Our community are at the heart of everything we do – we work collaboratively with members and health professionals to ensure we make decisions influenced by their valued input and direction.
As bleeding disorders are rare, many people will never encounter The Haemophilia Society; we are largely invisible beyond the communities we serve. We have to work doubly hard to raise both awareness and understanding of bleeding disorders and vital funds needed to give those affected the services they deserve and need to live the best life they can.

We specialise in providing cutting edge insight that helps our clients better connect with the people they serve in a time of change. We work mainly with clients in national and local government, the NHS and charity sector.
Our team is growing with increasing work in the field of public engagement and community cohesion. This is an exciting opportunity to help organisations dealing with complex policy challenges build trust and manage change.
About the role
You will manage projects in the fields of engagement, research and communications, and provide specialist expertise to our clients.
The job is fast paced dealing with client and public facing projects. In your day to day role this will involve delivery of primary (quantitative and qualitative research) and secondary research, organising engagement events, and presenting to clients.
You will have an important role in TCC's small team, with opportunities to play a central role in developing the business.
You are likely to have previously worked in a research, politics, engagement or communications role and will be self-motivated, proactive, creative, a problem-solver and great at managing deadlines and changing priorities.
You will be curious about how communities work, what drives perceptions and behaviours, and how engagement around policy issues can affect positive change.
You will need to be prepared to work hard and learn fast across a range of areas and be happy working independently and as part of a team.
