Flexible working options are available at Macmillan and we would be happy to discuss them. Home-based with frequent travel across the Geographic location in which the role is based and across the UK.

You must live in or live close to the geography that you are applying for as frequent travel is required. We anticipate this to be up to 3 days per week (if full time). You must hold a UK driving license to undertake this role and have access to a vehicle. Successful candidates will receive a car allowance other than London roles given the availability of public transport.

Are you values led and passionate about supporting and delivering quality improvement interventions and developing excellent relationships so that our Macmillan Professionals can deliver high quality Macmillan experiences for people living with cancer? Do you have experience of bringing teams together and fostering a culture of change and improvement and leading teams through that journey? If so, this could be the role for you!

We are striving to do everything that we can to ensure that our 11,000 valued Macmillan Professionals receive the absolute best professional engagement offer so they can support the people living with cancer that they care for.

We want our professional engagement offer to be best in class and ensure that our Macmillan Professionals are engaged champions and able to deliver the best possible experiences for people living with cancer.

About the role
This exciting role is growing to support the advancement of the dynamic professional engagement strategy and the priorities of the geography.

Macmillan Professionals are central to our organisational and geographic aims. They provide vital information, emotional support, and personalised care. As we seek to deliver more for people living with cancer in more challenging times, working through our professionals and partners in the most effective and impactful way is essential.

In this role you’ll support Macmillan Professionals across various settings and in a variety of ways. Supporting teams to improve through quality improvement activities, strengthening relationships to deliver more for people living with cancer and ensuring that professionals have access to the tools and resources are key elements of the role. Working across a geographical area and by working collaboratively with the Senior Geographical Leadership team, your other team colleagues, external partners, and other key stakeholders, the role will agree and deliver local priorities.

This dynamic role will be a catalyst for change and ensure that Macmillan Professionals are inspired, confident and supported to deliver the absolute best person-centred care for people living with cancer.

About you
You will have exceptional people and communications skills and bring a wealth of experience of leading change, facilitation, continuous quality improvement and co-creation, all with inclusion at the heart.
You will have a deep commitment to our purpose of improving the lives of people living with cancer by involving them through our Macmillan Professionals. You will be an inspiring collaborator, be able to work in a matrix environment and communicate and influence to deliver our quality improvement aspirations and our person-centred care agendas through multiple professionals, teams, and systems.

You will understand the complex environments in which our Macmillan Professionals operate and understand the issues and challenges that they face.

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.   

You will be required to visit partner organisations and must be able to travel within your geography.

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. 

Recruitment Process 
To ensure fairness and consistency to select the best candidate for this role, all 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 and strengths.

Interviews will be held Monday 22nd and Thursday 25th August.
