You will manage and support complex and politically sensitive projects to drive change across the UK’s health services and other service providers.
You will bring your expert knowledge of how to unlock change, to develop and implement projects or campaigns to achieve our strategic aims. You will ensure change projects are underpinned by effective approaches that target those most able to bring about change.
What we want from you
You will have a proven track record in influencing change within devolved nation(s) health services, coupled with excellent communication skills and experience in developing and managing stakeholder engagement with health, political and public stakeholders.
You will have proven knowledge of the workings of at least one devolved health service and will understand the routes to influence to achieve positive change.
Why work for us?
We’re here to stop prostate cancer killing men and damaging bodies and lives. We unite the brightest minds in science and healthcare and the most passionate and caring people to help men live long and live well. As the number of men diagnosed with prostate cancer continues to rise, we continue to make advances in research to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment and support so that we can build a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer.
Work with us and you’ll see your efforts pay off as we fight for a better future for men.
What we offer
Join our team and you’ll be working at an award-winning charity that will support you to develop your skills and expertise. We’re particularly proud of our agile working arrangements which allow (as appropriate to the role) for flexibility around where and when we carry out our work to ensure we can achieve the best results for the charity, at the same time as balancing our working lives with life’s other commitments!
We also offer a competitive benefits package including generous leave entitlements, an enhanced contributory pension scheme, a Health Cash Plan, life insurance and group income protection, as well as free advice and support on pretty much anything via our Employee Assistance Programme. Season ticket and cycle loans are also available.
Our teams, supporters, partners, and those living with prostate cancer, come from all walks of life. We draw upon the difference in who we are, what we’ve experienced and how we think to build a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer. Not only is it the right thing to do, it makes our charity stronger and helps us reach more people. If you share our ambition, we’d love to hear from you.
