Macmillan Specialist Advisor - Business Engagement
Policy & Impact Directorate
Permanent
£58,000 - £62,000

Do you have experience of leading a corporate partnerships team in the public or 3rd Sector, or perhaps managing a Corporate Social Responsibility function in the private sector? If so, we have a fantastic new role as our Specialist Advisor for Business Engagement.

About the role
Everything that Macmillan does to address the needs of people with cancer is based on a sophisticated methodology for engaging with people and with those who can help them. The Specialist Advisory Division is the engine-room which houses Macmillan’s knowledge of how to do this. Key audiences of people and communities, the cancer workforce, businesses, and care delivery systems enable Macmillan to achieve long-term and lasting outcomes for people with cancer.

This role will be Macmillan’s subject matter expert in the field of Business Engagement. As Specialist Advisor for Business Engagement you will drive our work in this area; representing Macmillan externally at all levels, and owning the agenda internally to ensure that our work in this area is well defined and articulated, effective and at the cutting edge of good and emerging practice.

About you
You will be a strong and influential leader who has a successful track record of developing and delivering innovative engagement approaches, specifically with credible knowledge of doing so with businesses and the private sector. Perhaps you currently lead a corporate partnerships team in the public or 3rd Sector? Or do you have experience managing a Corporate Social Responsibility function in the private sector? Ultimately, you will comfortably demonstrate experience navigating complex and matrix working settings, and the ability to forge productive collaborative relationships with stakeholders at all levels of seniority.

About us
At Macmillan, our ambition is to reach and improve the lives of everyone affected by cancer and inspire millions to do the same. We are a source of support: providing practical, clinical, emotional, and financial support. We are also a force for change: listening to people affected by cancer and working together to influence and lobby for better cancer care.

Assessment: 27th & 28th June
