If so, we’d like to hear from you!
We’re seeking a well-organised coordinator to join our growing support services team and help us reach more people living with secondary (metastatic) breast cancer. This role will coordinate the successful delivery of face to face and online services providing information and emotional support across the south west.
You’ll work as part of a small team based across the UK and arrange delivery of services in the south west, playing a key role in increasing our reach and uptake. Our current services are located in Bristol, Swindon, Dorset, Salisbury, Taunton, Torquay and Truro and we’ve plans to expand further.
You’ll liaise with venues, expert speakers and support our team of dedicated qualified sessional therapists, as well as providing technical support for the running of monthly online services. And you’ll build productive relationships with healthcare professionals and other stakeholders to promote our services and increase their reach and uptake.
We’re looking for someone with experience of developing and delivering information and support services, preferably in a health or charity environment. You’ll understand the challenges for people living with illness or complex health or social needs and be keen to use your excellent organisation and time management skills to juggle a busy workload. You’ll enjoy working collaboratively and managing relationships with a range of stakeholders. A great team player, you’ll be flexible and able to travel and work outside normal office hours, including regular overnight stays. Above all, you’ll relish the opportunity to deliver our ambition to provide support for anyone living with secondary breast cancer who needs us, by making our services more widely available and accessible.
We’re Breast Cancer Now, the research and support charity. We’re the place to turn to for anything and everything to do with breast cancer. However, you’re experiencing breast cancer, we’re here.
