Job description
This organisation supports anonymous recruitment. That means hiding your personal identifying information, removing bias from the hiring process.

We are looking for someone who has a proven track record of experience delivering change within the NHS, as well as a wealth of experience in working successfully with community-based stakeholders. You should be passionate about wanting to change health inequalities, be resilient, enjoy stakeholder engagement at every level, and have a positive, can-do attitude.

This is an exciting time to join our Patient Projects team as we launch our Empowering People with Prostate Cancer (EPPC) project which aims to better educate and empower people living with prostate cancer.

This project, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, aims to provide people living with prostate cancer with the information and support they need, at diagnosis, when considering further treatment options, thereby reducing treatment regret, and ensuring better quality of life outcomes. Central to this project is the creation of a new patient information and empowerment website, The Infopool.

This role will be instrumental in the development and delivery of this project, helping ensure the project achieves its ambitious outcomes. You will be instrumental in delivering on the EPPC project and expanding the Patient Project Department into new and more ambitious areas.

This project is part time, 3.5 days per week, and can be either fully remote working or flexible hybrid (our office is in Holborn). Some travel will be involved in this role.

  • Develop and deliver a programme of outreach to healthcare professionals, ensuring the adoption of project resources and other organisational resources across target institutions.
  • Develop a pilot project for a community-based approach to information prescribing, building new relationships with key stakeholders focused on most effectively reaching those with low health and digital literacy.
  • Maintain a tracking and reporting system to ensure the project exceeds its targets and funding requirements are met.
  • Support the Head of Patient Projects to define the project’s annual operational plan.
  • Contribute to external events as a representative of PCR including attending national conferences, such as BAUN and BAUS.
  • Help develop a system of Infopool champions in hospital-based and peer-led support groups to help advance the project’s objectives.
  • Input into new project development as well as funding proposals, bids, and pitches to help expand the breadth and depth of the project and ensure the development of new projects for the department.
  • Think strategically about opportunities to connect this project and its users with other priorities of the department and organisation.
  • Undertake any other relevant duties and projects delegated by the Head of Patient Projects in line with the responsibilities of the post and the aims of the department.
