Are you a registered nurse who values the importance of information provision for people affected by cancer? Macmillan’s award-winning Cancer Information Development team is recruiting and would love to hear from you.

What is the role?
Join our London team and help us produce and update a range of accessible information for people affected by cancer. You will help people understand more about diagnosis, treatments, side effects and what can help when they’re living with and after cancer. Timely, accurate and current information can make all the difference - not only to a person with cancer but their family and friends too.

You’ll be involved in writing, reviewing, editing, and developing content on a broad range of clinical and related topics. You’ll work with our editors and teams across Macmillan as well as health professionals in the NHS and voluntary sector to produce quality information for different audiences.

Recognising you as a Macmillan Professional, we will offer the opportunity to develop your knowledge and writing skills in an environment where you will become expert in providing written information to people affected by cancer.

You will be an expert contact for colleagues in Macmillan who will draw on your background to ensure the charity is focused on the needs of people affected by cancer. By playing a key part in our services, you’ll help more people feel supported, informed, and more able to cope.

Who are we looking for?
As our ideal candidate, you are a registered nurse with oncology experience in the clinical setting, who understands the importance of written information and can work independently.

You have excellent verbal and written communication skills, and strong organisational skills.

What can we offer you?
In return for the commitment and skills you’ll bring to our friendly, supportive, and high-performing team, we will commit to actively developing you in the role. We offer excellent benefits including continuing to contribute to NHS pension schemes, paid registration fees, CPD and revalidation support, private medical insurance, life assurance, childcare vouchers, generous annual leave, and interest-free loans for season ticket and gym membership.
