Harris Hill is proud to be partnering with Leukaemia Care in its search for a new Patient Advocacy Manager.

Based in Worcester but working across the UK, particularly London, and with some international travel, the Patient Advocacy Manager will work closely with and, when needed, deputise for the Patient Advocacy Director on the development and implementation of campaigns and policy initiatives to drive change to improve the lives of people affected by leukaemia and other blood cancers.

Responsibilities for this post are wide ranging and hands on. As well as horizon scanning, policy advice and information gathering, you'll represent Leukaemia Care on key campaigning groups such as Cancer 52 and the Cancer Campaigning Group, as well as engage with MPs, peers, political groups and other relevant stakeholders through networking, lobbying and partnership working. Moreover, you'll work closely with the Communications team, preparing press releases and designing and implementing campaigns.

Whether you come from a policy, campaigns or advocacy background, you'll have experience of campaign design and implementation and an understanding of how media and broader communications feed into campaigning. You'll also have excellent analytical and research skills, along with experience of senior-level stakeholder engagement and management, particularly in political circles.

This is a brilliant opportunity for a policy and/or campaigns professional to make a tangible difference to the lives of people affected by leukaemia and other blood cancers and gain excellent exposure to the full cycle of campaigning and changemaking.

This is a full-time, permanent position paying 29,000 - 32,000, with a shortlist of applications to be submitted on Monday 19th August. Application process is a CV initially, with a cover letter to follow at a later stage.

Please note that only suitable applicants will be contacted.
