Job description

We’re searching for a part-time nurse with haematology experience to bring their expertise and passion to our small but ambitious blood cancer charity. The role will be focussed on setting up and managing our brand new Support Line service.

You’ll have experience of managing and caring for people living with blood cancer, and it would be beneficial if you have specific experience and knowledge of caring for people with Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinaemia (WM).

Reporting to our CEO, you’ll be responsible for setting up and managing the UK’s first dedicated support line for people living with WM and their friends and families. You’ll be supporting the 4,000 people living with the disease, by helping them to understand their diagnosis, provide emotional support and help them to prepare for appointments.

We’re looking for a nurse who can commit to 15 hours every week, ideally split over 3-5 days, to run the WMUK Support Line. However, there is flexibility for the right candidate.

About WMUK

We’re the only charity in the UK focussed on supporting people living with WM. We provide expert information, a listening ear and support services for patients, their friends and families.

Since the charity re-registered in 2020, it has grown into a vibrant hub of information and support for anyone affected by the disease. In the coming year, we have several new and exciting projects planned, including setting up the UK’s first WM-focussed Support Line, as well as kick-starting healthcare professional education programmes and producing more patient information than ever before.

Please find the full job description and personal specification in the attachment.
