Salary: £23-26k according to experience
Contract: One year initially, renewable if the project is successful
Location: Home based, with travel across the region
Pancreatic cancer is the tenth most common cancer in the UK, with 9,400 people diagnosed each year. For decades pancreatic cancer has remained on the side-lines, but things are changing. We’ve seen the start of positive change in treatment and care for pancreatic cancer patients. Today five year survival rates across the UK have increased from 3% to 5% – a long overdue increase but still far too low.
Pancreatic Cancer UK’s ten-year vision is to transform the future for everyone affected by pancreatic cancer.
The charity will work to increase research spend to a game changing £25 million, campaign for improved access to treatments, and better care for everyone with the disease. The charity will double the reach of its flagship service, the Pancreatic Cancer UK Support Line.
The purpose of this role is to be Pancreatic Cancer UK’s local representative in the North West, engaging with the community of existing and potential supporters.
You’ll work from home – so you will need to be well-connected for travel across the region. You’ll collaborate with a locally based Regional Nurse and work remotely with London based staff on a wide range of UK wide initiatives and campaigns. You’ll need your own car to drive around the area, making connections, disseminating information and coordinating volunteers and supporters.
You’ll be well organised, a natural networker and communicator, with good office administration and IT skills and some experience of volunteering or working with volunteers in a community based role. Experience of volunteering or supporting a cancer charity is very welcome, but most important is your commitment to our work, our ambitions and our values.
This is a great opportunity for you to build up support for a great cause. You will have the opportunity to learn and develop a broad understanding of our work as our local representative. Your reward will be the opportunity to be part of a growing organisation and to make a difference for all those affected by pancreatic cancer across the North West.
