The Clinical Engagement Manager will play a key role in ensuring Blood Cancer UK's vision becomes a reality. You will work in the Policy, Campaigns and Engagement team and lead the charity's relationships with healthcare professionals working in the care and treatment of people with blood cancer.
You will, therefore, have a passion for working with consultants, nurses and others working directly with people diagnosed. You will understand how these relationships can maximise our impact through the services we provide for people affected by blood cancer and the policy and campaign priorities we take to the NHS and the four Governments across the UK. We want someone who is committed, dedicated and reliable, with a keen eye for detail and a willingness to get involved and make a real difference.
You will enjoy talking to healthcare professionals face to face, over the phone and online and, importantly, understand their perspective and how we can best utilise their skills, experience and knowledge. You must also develop a compelling offer to healthcare professionals so they see Blood Cancer UK as a source of reliable information, support and advocacy.
