Job description

The role

As a member of our Policy, Evidence and Influencing team, this is an excellent opportunity to manage a critical area of our policy work, influencing change across the UK for people affected by secondary breast cancer. This will involve driving forward key areas identified in our secondary breast campaign, including support from a clinical nurse specialist.

You will provide strategic direction on the focus and activities undertaken in this area as well as researching and developing evidence-based policy positions and recommendations. You will also influence directly on behalf of the charity at a senior level at external meetings, develop and maintain contacts, build relationships and increase the charity’s profile, acting on opportunities to influence, as well as inputting into the team’s strategy development, planning and budgeting processes.

About you

You will have considerable experience of working in a relevant policy role delivering significant change and have project management experience, working across teams and departments and effectively leading the implementation of strategic work streams. You will also have excellent communication skills, be able to work independently and be a strategic thinker. You will have an excellent understanding of the current policy landscape.

About us

We’re Breast Cancer Now, the charity that’s steered by world-class research and powered by life-changing care. We’re here for anyone affected by breast cancer, the whole way through, providing support for today and hope for the future.

We’re that trusted friend that people affected by breast cancer turn to for caring support when they need it most. The expert authority on breast cancer research who is making breakthroughs and driving forward progress. And a vehicle for change, acting now to make sure anyone affected by breast cancer gets the best possible treatment and care.

We believe that we can change the future of breast cancer and make sure that, by 2050, everyone diagnosed with the disease lives – and is supported to live well. But we need to act now.

Please note that currently Breast Cancer Now is following Government guidelines regarding working from home. Although the role is based in London, the expectation is that once restrictions are eased we will follow a blended approach between office and home working.
