We’re looking for a new Policy Executive to help shape and drive forward our policy and campaigns work, helping to ensure we stay ahead of developments in the policy environment, have the evidence we need to influence decision makers, and work collaboratively with our members and wider stakeholders. You’ll also spend some time working on behalf of the Children and Young People’s Cancer Coalition (CYPCC), a newly-formed, CEO-led coalition of 14 founding organisations. The Coalition aims to make things better for children and young people with cancer through speaking up on issues that matter to them.
You’ll have experience of working as part of a policy team and contributing to the development of evidence-led policy, as well as experience of meeting with key stakeholders and attending policy events. You’ll have previous experience of producingconsultation responses and/or evidence-based policy briefings for a range of audiences, and you’ll have excellent communication skills. If this sounds like you, this new role within CCLG offers a varied scope in a growing national charity and professional association.
Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG) is a leading national charity and expert voice for all childhood cancers.
Each week in the UK and Ireland, more than 30 children are diagnosed with cancer. Our network of dedicated professional members work together in treatment, care and research to help shape a future where all children with cancer survive and live happy, healthy and independent lives.
We fund and support innovative world-class research and collaborate, both nationally and internationally, to drive forward improvements in childhood cancer. Our award-winning information resources help lessen the anxiety, stress and loneliness commonly felt by families, giving support throughout the cancer journey.
This is a new role, which will support CCLG and TYAC’s (60%) and CYPCC’s (40%) engagement, communications and influence with policy-makers, elected representatives and other key stakeholders across the UK and Ireland. You will be responsible for keeping abreast of policy developments, providing sound policy analysis, producing quality, evidence based policy papers and presenting CCLG’s policy positions with key external stakeholders and at external events.
