Today, 11 children and young people in the UK hear the shocking news they have cancer. Our client is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families, offering them care and support every step of the way. You can be a part of helping them live their life to the full.

They recognise, through the feedback they receive from young people that digital support - alongside peer support - are essential elements of service provision. Therefore they are seeking an experienced Social Care Practitioner, who has working experience with young people in either health, education, social work or youth work settings, to facilitate peer-to-peer support on our client's online community for young people aged 16-24 with cancer. 

Applicants will need to demonstrate experience of digital working with young people, and have an understanding of the challenges that may occur as the result of cancer treatment. 

Based in their Bristol Office with the digital team, this innovative new role will be part of both the services and digital teams and alongside managing the online community, the post holder will pilot new ways of working and delivering services online. 

This exciting position is a key part of how the client will respond to the digital expectations of children, parents and young people with cancer. 

What they offer: 

In return for your commitment, they offer a great reward package, which includes generous annual leave entitlement, pension scheme and season ticket loan. 

They are always looking for talented people from all backgrounds, to join them and help improve the lives of children and young people with cancer and their families. They particularly want to encourage people from under-represented groups to step forward and apply to work or volunteer with them. 

The client is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.
