  • Support the efficiency and effectiveness of the team by contributing to the annual planning and reporting and budgeting processes

  • Develop, engage, maintain and steward a network of contacts across Talent, agents, publicists and influencers who can support CRUK.

  • Attend external events to build and nurture your network

  • Support senior members of the Talent team by responding to campaign and project briefs

  • Build internal relationships across CRUK to develop an understanding of priorities and strategies to ensure Talent involvement is maximised to benefit the organisation

  • Ensure equality and diversity is celebrated and considered as part of all decisions taken

  • Think creatively and identify new opportunities to collaborate both internally and externally

  • Manage and maintain key administrative processes on behalf of the team.

What skills are you looking for?

You can help us beat cancer sooner through your...

  • Confident approach and ability to demonstrate expertise to a number of stakeholders, both internally and externally

  • Excellent influencing skills

  • Strong experience of working with talent, influencers and their representatives

  • Strong relationship building skills and ability to work with a network of contacts across the Talent sector (including TV, film, radio, fashion, film, politics and more)

  • Experience of budget management and event delivery

  • Proven ability to collaborate with multiple teams in large organisations, managing multiple stakeholders and a complex set of priorities

  • Understanding of reputation management and importance of PR for Talent & Influencer Relations

  • Excellent written and oral communication skills with a good attention to detail

  • Enthusiasm, proactive attitude and capacity to work using your own initiative

  • Understanding of the charity sector.

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 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.
