The role of the Information and Awareness Lead at CLDF is to develop, maintain and disseminate a range of information and resources about child liver disease, for young people, families, clinicians and the general public.
You will be required to acquire and maintain a current awareness of research and clinical developments in the field of paediatric hepatology, and build relationships with partners who can support in the dissemination of information about child liver disease. This will include maintaining and developing CLDF's profile and relationship with healthcare professionals and professional bodies, taking responsibility for health information campaigns such as Yellow Alert. The role will interface with the public on behalf of CLDF and thus will require a high standard of professionalism and customer care.
You'll be a skilled communicator with a passion for using your scientific literacy to produce and disseminate high quality information which supports families, the public and clinicians to have a current and accurate understanding of medical conditions.
You'll be equally comfortable working collaboratively and independently, with a strong attention to detail and accuracy. You'll be ready and able to maintain and build new contacts and relationships with professionals across the UK on behalf of CLDF, raising awareness of child liver disease in order to save and improve the lives of children and families affected by liver disease.
