Breast Cancer Care is here for anyone affected by breast cancer. We bring people together, provide information and support, and campaign for improved standards of care. We use our understanding of people’s experience of breast cancer and our clinical expertise in everything we do.

Our website is now Breast Cancer Care???s most accessed service; it is interactive and dynamic, offering online support services, discussion forums, surveys, polls, online donations and shopping.

The Digital team is focused on integrating all our digital services into a seamless experience for all of our users. Our goal is to provide the most comprehensive information and services for anyone affected by breast cancer, and to be a point of information and support throughout their cancer journey. We also provide digital support to our campaigning, volunteering and fundraising departments.

The Digital Assistant will source, create and manage engaging content for Breast Cancer Care???s digital services. The digital Assistant will work as part of the Digital team to improve the quality of digital content across all elements of our digital services, including editorial, images, video and audio.  The role will range from straightforward data migration and entry to the opportunity to produce creative content for people affected by Breast cancer and our supporters.

We are looking for someone who is extremely comfortable in the digital sphere and has built an online presence that proves it. Do you have your own blog? Have you dabbled in web design or done something funny or original using social media?

You will use the content management system Drupal, so experience of open-source publishing platforms would be an advantage. We???re looking for demonstrable enthusiasm and initiative above all else.
