The role

Cancer Research UK has set out an ambitious goal that three in four people diagnosed with cancer should survive that diagnosis by 2034. In order to achieve this ambition, our focus is on the early diagnosis of cancer because of the great potential for improvement in outcomes through diagnosing cancer earlier.


To help support our ambition our Health Professional Facilitators are the visible face of our work with the NHS. Our Facilitators work closely with Primary Care Networks (PCN)/ clusters and commissioners and planners of cancer care. They provide valuable practical support for quality improvement and lead educational sessions supporting cancer prevention, screening, recognition and referral.

Our team is built of engaging, committed people who love building relationships and working with a wide range of healthcare professionals and their teams to drive improvements in cancer outcomes.


What are we looking for?

  • Proven ability to develop strong collaborative relationships with a variety of stakeholders to influence change

  • Outstanding communication and interpersonal skills

  • Excellent organisational and project management skills

  • Significant knowledge and application of Quality Improvement methodology and tools

  • Proven ability to shape your approach and tailor the use of different tools to different audience's needs, including digital technologies

  • Experience of using evidenced data sources to engage with different audiences, including presenting information in a clear way

  • Able to identify and share crucial intelligence from your work and utilise this to inform future planning/strategy


If this describes you, join our team as we work hard to beat cancer sooner.



*The application process will involve uploading your CV, and answering a few short application questions.
