What the job involves
The Education Team at Prostate Cancer UK develop and deliver quality education to health professionals involved with prostate cancer care. We support health professionals with professional development by providing bursaries and a monthly clinical update. We work with teams across the organisation to support engagement work with health professionals.
As an Improving Care Coordinator, you will play an important role in supporting the delivery of education events and conferences, and provide administrative and logistical support to the Team. The Education Team builds partnerships and relationships with key external stakeholders so that we can collaborate and increase our reach.
What we want from you
You will be confident in working autonomously, have excellent communication skills, and possess excellent organisational, planning and time management skills. You will be proficient in the use of Microsoft Office, particularly Microsoft Word and Excel, with experience of using and maintaining databases.
You will be able to travel across the UK when necessary to conferences and other events. You will be confident in coordinating events virtually and face to face and representing the charity at conferences and events.
As a team player, you work well with others, are comfortable working cross-organisationally and have experience of participating in multi-disciplinary project teams. You're also flexible and can adapt quickly to internal and external changes. You manage your time effectively and can juggle a breadth of competing priorities.
Why work for us?
We're here to stop prostate cancer killing men and damaging bodies and lives. We unite the brightest minds in science and healthcare and the most passionate and caring people to help men live long and live well. As the number of men diagnosed with prostate cancer continues to rise, we continue to make advances in research to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment and support so that we can build a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer.
Work with us and you'll see your efforts pay off as we fight for a better future for men.
What we offer
Join our team and you'll be working at an award-winning charity that will support you to develop your skills and expertise. We're particularly proud of our agile working arrangements which allow (as appropriate to the role) for flexibility around where and when we carry out our work to ensure we can achieve the best results for the charity, at the same time as balancing our working lives with life's other commitments!
We also offer a competitive benefits package including generous leave entitlements, season ticket loans, a cycle to work scheme, an enhanced contributory pension scheme, life insurance and group income protection as well as free advice and support on pretty much anything via our Employee Assistance Programme.
Our teams, supporters, partners, and those living with prostate cancer, come from all walks of life. We draw upon the difference in who we are, what we've experienced and how we think to build a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer. Not only is it the right thing to do, it makes our charity stronger and helps us reach more people. If you share our ambition we would love to hear from you.
