Job description

Macmillan Engagement Lead
Permanent  
Full time [34.5 hours with flexible working, we are open to a conversation about how you work these hours]
Mobile Worker – Northern Ireland
Salary  £33,000 – £39,000 plus car allowance 

Are you someone who thrives on engaging with different communities? Do you want to use your skills and expertise to really make a difference and help support people living with cancer? If so, this could be a great role for you.

We are striving to do everything we can to ensure that our workforce is representative of the people we support, and those who support us. We advocate for being an inclusive organisation, where everyone can feel that they belong and where there are no barriers to success. 

We want every individual to feel empowered to bring their best to work, and that’s why we 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. 

About the role

Our Engagement Leads are key to providing the support and structure to enable people living with cancer to shape and influence service delivery, policy and our equality, inclusion and diversity agenda. The role is home based and involves daily travel covering Northern Ireland in the normal course of the work and therefore a current valid driving licence is essential. Some evening and out-of-hours work will also be required, and occasional overnight stays and occasional travel to Scotland and England.

About you

As part of the Northern Ireland geographic team you’ll put your excellent communication, interpersonal and facilitation skills into play to influence and inform your target audience. Your drive and knowledge of how the health and social care sector is structured will enable you to implement a person centred approach via the involvement of others.

You will bring experience in working with groups and volunteers in a community based setting, development of community partnerships and the ability to plan community networking and outreach events.

You can demonstrate the ability to analyse qualitative data to report outcomes and be confident to take the lead on project development and project management.

About us

We help millions of people with cancer across the UK live life as fully as they can through physical, emotional and financial support. Our values are at the heart of who we are and everything we do, inspiring our thinking and guiding our actions. Together, we do whatever it takes for people living with cancer; with heart, with strength and with ambition.

Recruitment Process

The deadline for applications is 22nd May 2022 at 23:59. Virtual interviews will run from 14th June 2022. 

In order to ensure fairness and consistency to select the best candidate for this role, all of our applications are anonymised up until an interview has been confirmed so that shortlisting is based solely upon the suitability of the candidate’s experience.

Any offers on this role are made subject to a criminal records disclosure check or equivalent
