Pancreatic Cancer Action:
Pancreatic Cancer Action, (registered charity No.1137689) was founded in 2010 by a rare survivor of the disease. We are a small team headed by our Founder & Chief Executive who runs the charity plus a board of Trustees, which provides direction for the organisation. In August 2020 Pancreatic Cancer Action merged with Pancreatic Cancer Scotland making our team stronger than ever.
Pancreatic cancer has only a seven per cent survival rate and this figure has not improved significantly for over 40 years. Despite it being the fifth biggest cancer killer in the UK, pancreatic cancer receives only three per cent of overall research funding. With a strong focus on early diagnosis, it is Pancreatic Cancer Action's aim to improve survival rates through awareness, medical education, improved patient information and by funding research specifically into the early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. Simply, we want more people diagnosed in time for surgery, currently the only potential for a cure.
As the Marketing and Communications Manager, you will be responsible for the development and implementation of Pancreatic Cancer Action's (PCA) marketing and campaign strategies ensuring that they support the overall charity vision; working towards the day when most people will survive pancreatic cancer, whilst driving commercial targets and managing costs.
The Marketing and Communications Manager will act as the brand guardian for PCA and its associated sub brands. They will inspire and lead the marketing team to offer a first-class marketing service that constantly delivers above expectations and offer marketing consultancy and expertise across the charity. The post holder will be working closely with the Fundraising Development Manager and fundraising team.
This post has line management responsibilities, presently for two staff members (although the team may grow in time). The post holder is expected to manage workflow, conduct appraisals, and to facilitate the training and up-skilling of staff. The post-holder is also expected to offer support to the executive team. A creative, enthusiastic and personable demeanour is needed, as is the ability to assimilate a heavy workload and to work effectively under pressure.
