Full time (34.5 hours), we are open to a conversation about how you work these hours
Mobile worker Scotland
Salary Range £35,000 – £40,000 plus car allowance
Are you someone who thrives on engaging with different communities? Do you want to use your skills and expertise to really make a difference and help support people living with cancer?
If so, this could be a great role for you.
About the role
Our Engagement Leads are key to providing the support and structure to enable people living with cancer to shape and influence service delivery, policy and our equality, inclusion and diversity agenda. The role is home based and involves daily travel covering Scotland in the normal course of the work and therefore a current valid driving licence is essential or access to alternative means of transport. Some evening and out-of-hours work will also be required, and occasional travel to other parts of the UK with occasional overnight stays.
As part of the Scotland geographic team you’ll put your excellent communication, interpersonal and facilitation skills into play to influence and inform your target audience. Your drive and knowledge of how the health and social care sector is structured will enable you to implement a person centred approach via the involvement of others.
You will bring experience in working with groups and volunteers in a community based setting, development of community partnerships and the ability to plan community networking and outreach events.
You can demonstrate the ability to analyse qualitative data to report outcomes and be confident to take the lead on project development and project management.
Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the largest and most loved charities in the UK. We support millions of people living with cancer in the UK live life as fully as they can by providing emotional, practical and financial support.
We offer flexible working for all employees and commit to actively developing you in your career. You will also be eligible for several benefits which include private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, generous leave, and interest free loans for season tickets and gym membership.
