Office based (London, EC3N) and Homeworking
This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Clinical Nurse Specialist to join Breast Cancer Now's team of nurses.
You will act as a resource for Breast Cancer Now, clients, healthcare professionals and the wider public on breast cancer and breast health and support the day to day running of the Helpline and Ask Our Nurse service. The role includes service delivery and development, media work and healthcare professional training. You will also work closely with our Services team in the planning of services that support people with primary breast cancer, for example our Moving Forward courses and the Someone Like Me team.
You will coordinate the day to day running of and provide information and support to clients (approximately three days per week) on our Helpline and Ask Our Nurse service, email and social media. You will also author health information, take part in quality monitoring of services and be one of our press spokespeople. You will also ensure that colleagues are supported and assist them with any issues that may arise throughout the day.
Flexible in your approach, you must be prepared to travel throughout the UK when required and to occasionally work varying hours. The Helpline service is run throughout the week, and on Saturday mornings (the latter of which is optional). Team training usually occurs twice a year on Saturdays. This role offers a combination of home and office-based working from our central London office.
You will be a dynamic nurse with a solid grounding in breast care nursing and the ability to learn many new and exciting skills. You will have good communication skills, with the ability to deal with sensitive issues and adhering to confidentiality. A great team player with a flexible approach, you will be able to occasionally work or travel outside of office hours during evenings or weekends. If this is you, we would like to hear from you.
