This is an exciting new role at the charity to lead our advocacy work, challenging decision makers, policymakers and society as a whole, to recognise and accommodate the needs of all those affected by Crohn's and Colitis, including those from seldom heard groups.
You will be responsible for our policy and campaigns teams, driving an integrated programme of advocacy with a growing budget. In this, you will be supported by our new strategic focus to build an evidence base to underpin our programme for change, led by another new role, the Head of Research and Evidence, with whom you will be working closely.
You will be a seasoned campaigner who has delivered effective public facing campaigns with a thorough understanding of how campaigns and policy work together to deliver demonstrable impact, ideally in healthcare. This role will interact with leaders in the NHS and elsewhere at the highest level and you will need to be a credible presence speaking to our agenda.
The charity is at a really exciting point. We are in excellent financial health and moving to a new strategy which will give you the chance to put a personal stamp on the actions we are taking to improve the quality of life for people with Crohn's and Colitis.
