We’re excited to announce that in April 2019, Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now united to create one charity for everyone affected by breast cancer. From research to care, our new charity has people affected by the disease at its heart – providing support for today and hope for the future. United, we can carry out even more world-class research, provide even more life-changing support and campaign even more effectively for better services and care.
By bringing together our passion, energy, expertise, funds and networks, we will make greater progress in more effective ways to make sure that, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live and receive the support they need to live well.
You will work within our Communications and Influencing Directorate which will market and communicate the new charity, our work and impact to all those affected by breast cancer. This will be achieved through the provision of high quality information about breast cancer; ensuring the cause and patient voice is kept high on the policy, political and media agenda to influence policy and practice.
This is an exciting opportunity to lead the development and delivery of our policy and public affairs strategy to influence change for people with breast cancer in Wales. You will develop evidence-based positions and recommendations, oversee the design, development and delivery of public affairs plans and build strong relationships with key external stakeholders. Acting as a source of expertise across the organisation and externally you will work with colleagues to support the development and delivery of influencing strategies in line with policy positions, and developing contacts and relationships to increase the charity’s profile.
You will have experience of working in a relevant policy and public affairs role delivering significant change, of undertaking research and analysing data to support policy development, and of delivering and developing public affairs activities. Your excellent communication and interpersonal skills will provide you with the ability to manage projects and think strategically as well as building strong relationships with external stakeholders to influence change. You will have an excellent understanding of the current policy landscape.
