Job description

This role is a real opportunity to drive positive change for people affected by cancer in Wales. So, if you care about helping local communities with cancer issues and have the skills to voice our views in the right places, this is the job for you. To make a positive impact, you’ll need to know the right people and have proven skills and experience in a similar role.

It’s all about using your policy and public affairs expertise to make sure Tenovus Cancer Care is at the forefront of cancer policy thinking and development in Wales. You’ll need to be able to deliver high-quality, well-targeted policy and advocacy activity, informed by deep engagement with our communities.

Reporting to our new Director of Support, Policy and Insight, this is a pivotal role in helping the charity to achieve its strategic vision, so you also need to know your stuff when it comes to policy-driven campaigns. Horizon scanning, developing evidence-based positions, engaging with senior stakeholders, producing content for a range of audiences, and acting as a media spokesperson are just some of the elements that make this such an exciting and varied role.

What you'll need to succeed 

You’ll have already succeeded in a similar role elsewhere, preferably in the health or social care field or a third sector organisation. You’ll need to understand the NHS and social care systems, as well as having the political and legislative knowledge to help you shine in this role.

We’ll want to find out about the policy and public affairs campaigns you’ve driven and the challenges you’ve faced, as well hearing about your successes.  

People who do well in our teams succeed because they are open to working collaboratively and have a genuine passion for our cause. So, it goes without saying you’re a natural communicator and someone who can work with a range of stakeholders, both inside and outside Tenovus Cancer Care. And attitude is also really important to us, so we look for team players who care about our work and the people and communities we support.

About us

A cancer diagnosis can be frightening and stressful. We can help. We bring expert advice, emotional support and life-saving treatment to the heart of communities. We help cancer patients and their loved ones cope, and our vital research gives hope.

We care about people affected by cancer and we make a real difference to lives. And we need like-minded people just like you to help us make a difference.

Our roles are popular with candidates because we’re a local employer with a good reputation working for a cause people are passionate about.

We’re hardworking and we love what we do. We also offer great benefits which include agile working, family friendly policies and generous annual leave entitlement.

We’re hardworking and we love what we do. We also offer great benefits which include: 

  • Agile working
  • 35 pro-rated days holiday per year (including bank holidays) increases with length of service
  • Occupational sick pay
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Family friendly policies

Recruitment Process

Please apply with your CV and covering letter addressing the criteria stated in the Person Specification via the Tenovus Cancer Care website by 22nd November. Candidates will need to be available for a virtual interview on the 6th December.
