Are you a registered nurse or allied health professional looking for a new challenge and interested in promoting genomics within cancer? In collaboration with Health Education England (HEE), we have an exciting opportunity for you to join Macmillan’s Centre of Clinical Expertise.

About the roles

There are two roles available for nurses and allied healthcare professionals.

During this two days a week secondment, these positions involve supporting and informing Macmillan’s and HEE’s education and development offer for professionals, raising awareness of genomics to the workforce and people with lived experience of cancer, as well as support national workstreams linked to genomics.

The post holders will bring insight, ideas and thought leadership to the roles to inform cancer workforce development, education and training offers for the workforce supporting people with cancer and identifying innovative service models and best practice.

About you

We are looking for 2 motivated and driven individuals with evidence of management and clinical leadership experience and a strong interest in workforce development and service transformation.

You will need to have good working knowledge of the current healthcare system and current issues impacting on delivery of new technology, the ability to build and sustain networks and professional relationships and work with multi-professional teams.

We are striving to build a more diverse and representational organisation, and we have noted that we are under-represented when it comes to colleagues that identify as disabled, have an impairment or health condition and also those who identify as Black, Asian or another minority ethnic group. We are also underrepresented with those who identify as LGBTQ+.

We welcome applications from everyone who meets the criteria, but would also strongly encourage applications from individuals from groups where we are currently under-represented to help us move forward in achieving our aim of building a more diverse organisation so that we can better serve all people living with cancer. We have in place an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and we have Organisational Values (see attached) which promote fairness and belonging for all. We also have a successful internal employee representation body, Our Voice and also eight Employee Network groups to help us achieve a more engaged and inclusive organisation for all our people.   

About us

At Macmillan, we support millions of people living with cancer in the UK to live life as fully as they can by providing emotional, practical, and financial support. Our values are at the heart of who we are and everything we do. We commit to actively developing you and our benefits include private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, generous leave, interest free loans for season tickets and gym memberships and much more.

We want to create a workforce that is representative of the people we support, and who support us. We advocate for being an inclusive organisation, and offer flexibility in our working locations, working hours and benefits so we can support you in your life and your career, and we welcome a conversation about how these options can best support you.

We offer a range of flexible working patterns, such as compressed hours, e.g. 34.5 hours in 4 days instead of 5, flexibility to work earlier or later around our core working hours of 10am-4pm and more options.
