There are two roles
The two roles represent an exciting opportunity to work within the Policy, Evidence and Influencing team who lead on key policy areas and influence change for people with breast cancer across the UK. Both roles are broadly the same with the same job description, but each role has a slightly different focus.
One role focuses on the breast cancer workforce and supports our vital work on access to drugs. This role will also provide the opportunity to develop the charity’s local policy and evidence activities to identify and address local challenges in the provision of breast cancer services which is now more important than ever given the impact of COVID-19. This is role one.
The other role focuses on early diagnosis of breast cancer, in particular referrals to see a specialist, and waiting times and, the NHS breast screening programme – both of which have been impacted by the pandemic. This role will also provide the opportunity to further develop our work on services for those with a family history of breast cancer. This is role two.
In both roles, you will develop evidence-based positions and recommendations and build strong relationships with key external stakeholders. You will act as a source of expertise across the organisation and externally, working with colleagues to support the development and delivery of influencing strategies in line with policy positions, and developing contacts and relationships to increase the charity’s profile.
You will have experience of working in a relevant policy role delivering significant change, undertaking research and analysing data to support policy development, and advising on the development of influencing strategies. You will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, the ability to manage projects and think strategically, and to build strong relationships with external stakeholders to influence change. You will also have an excellent understanding of the current policy landscape.
