We are looking for someone who has the skills and motivation to help us influence policy and practice so that people with cancer get the right support to stay in or return to work after their cancer treatment.

You will be responsible for developing and delivering our influencing strategy on work and cancer including developing relationships with key policy makers and professional bodies and representing Macmillan at appropriate meetings and events.

You will work closely with Macmillan’s Policy & Research department to gather and analyse information about external policy developments and their implications for Macmillan as well as drafting responses to external policy consultations. You will also respond to queries from the press office and other Macmillan departments about Macmillan’s position on work and cancer issues.

We need you to hit the ground running, so your application must evidence a track record which shows the application of strong analytical skills coupled with well-developed communication and influencing skills. In addition, we need to know that you have the ability to gather evidence and commission research.

Equipped with a sound understanding of the techniques needed to plan, manage and monitor successful projects/programmes, your track record combined with your ability to develop and maintain effective working relationships will inspire team members, senior managers and external stakeholders. You must be able to set ambitious but realistic direction, holding yourself and others to account for delivering programme objectives – on time, on budget, and to specification.

A results-focused self-starter, your ability to assess and pre-empt problems, and to innovate in the face of challenges, will be of enormous value to us. Experience of working in a health or social care organisation would be ideal, particularly where complemented by an understanding of and investment in Macmillan's agenda.

And in return for your enthusiasm and commitment? We commit to actively developing you and offer benefits including a 21 hour week (with early finish on Fridays), BUPA, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers and generous annual leave.

Closing date: 16th October 2012.
