(Audience Engagement and Research)

Location: Angel Building (Stratford from October 2019)

Salary: circa £30,000
Contract: permanent


Closing date: Midnight 3rd September

Interview date: week commencing 9th September

Can you help us to engage with our audiences better to shape our analyses and sharpen our messages?

Why we need you

We need a sharp and nimble individual who can drive our engagement with those who influence and deliver cancer care in the UK by helping us to understand what interests them, what decisions they need to make and how they like to receive information. You will work with other team members and with our colleagues internally and externally to make sure the messages our analyses create are relatable and engaging for our audiences.

Cancer Intelligence is a diverse and dynamic team that provides evidence-based and up-to-date information about cancer. We make sure that our research underpins decisions within Cancer Research UK and reaches wider audiences.

What will I be doing?

As an audience engagement officer, you will work with a wide range of teams in CRUK to understand the needs of healthcare professionals and policy makers in all four nations and how we can most effectively communicate with them. You will…

  • Coordinate cancer intelligence activity across the charity and with external audiences
  • Create a cohesive and up to date picture of the needs of healthcare professionals and policy makers
  • Develop and disseminate cancer data messages to relevant audiences through a number of different channels
  • Influence internal colleagues to promote and improve content based on cancer intelligence

The role will suit somebody who is comfortable with communicating technical information including data analysis and is passionate about creating impactful stories. It will also will require you to work in a collaborative way and to use your persuasive skills.

What skills are you looking for?

You'll be able to bring to the role:

  • Undergraduate degree with a numerical or science communications component, or equivalent experience
  • Strong communication skills and proven experience of editing, disseminating and presenting evidence and technical information to a variety of audiences
  • Developed knowledge of health data or (ideally) cancer data
  • Experience of managing competing priorities and working to tight timescales
  • Experience in building strong relationships across teams

What will I gain?

Without you we wouldn't be able to achieve our aim of seeing 3 in 4 people survive cancer by 2034. So we want to reward you in as many ways as possible. Our benefits package includes discounts on anything from travel to technology, generous holiday allowance, gym membership, childcare vouchers and much more. You'll also be able to access a wide range of learning and development opportunities. And ultimately, you'll know that you'll be changing lives through your work.

If you're as ambitious as we are, join our collective force and enjoy an excellent career, as we save lives and add years.

We appreciate not everyone has the same working needs and are open to discussing flexible working arrangements.

Please submit your CV and cover letter through our careers page.

At CRUK we value diversity and we're committed to creating an inclusive culture where everyone is able to be themselves and to reach their full potential. We actively encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and cultures and believe that a diverse workforce will help us to beat cancer sooner.
