Job description

The role

At Breast Cancer Now, we’re more focused and determined than ever right now to turn the tide on breast cancer.

We’re looking for a Press & PR Manager (Research & Health) to join our talented and ambitious Press, PR & Celebrity team. The successful candidate will lead on developing a strategy and building profile that showcases our world-class research and cements us as the ‘go to’ organisation in breast cancer for key stakeholders.

About you

Great at building relationships including across colleagues, journalists, partner institutions, ambassadors of Breast Cancer Now and people affected by breast cancer, you’ll work strategically, collaboratively and at pace to deliver outstanding results.

With an instinctive news sense, you’ll bring the impact of our research to life and position the charity at the heart of the news agenda as the patient-focused, expert voice on issues facing the medical research sector, and championing the needs of people affected by breast cancer.

You’ll play a key role as a manager within our wider ambitious, focused and supportive Fundraising, Communications and Engagement Directorate, which has a focus and drive to reach and engage more people than ever before in our work and to develop our fundraising to continue to be a sustainable organisation for the future.

About us

We’re Breast Cancer Now, the charity that’s steered by world-class research and powered by life-changing care. We’re here for anyone affected by breast cancer, the whole way through, providing support for today and hope for the future.

We’re that trusted friend that people affected by breast cancer turn to for caring support when they need it most. The expert authority on breast cancer research who is making breakthroughs and driving forward progress. And a vehicle for change, acting now to make sure anyone affected by breast cancer gets the best possible treatment and care.

We believe that we can change the future of breast cancer and make sure that, by 2050, everyone diagnosed with the disease lives, and is supported to live well. But we need to act now.

Although the role is based in our London office, we are following a blended approach between office and home working with a minimum or two days per week in the office for full-time staff members. However, following recent Government guidance, staff members are currently working from home if they can do so. Should you have any queries with regards to this please contact us in the first instance.

Breast Cancer Now is an inclusive employer committed to developing a diverse workforce.
