|A little more ‘stakeholder engagement’ with Parliament than science communication of course but you know I’m a sucker for jobs in medical research or patient charities. The merest whiff of science or health communication etc. etc.
British Lung Foundation
Parliamentary and Policy Manager
Location: Head Office London EC1V
One person in seven in the UK is affected by a lung disease. Whether it’s mild asthma or lung cancer, the British Lung Foundation (BLF) is here for every one of them.
The British Lung Foundation is the only UK charity working for people with lung problems through research, education, support and care. Over the last 25 years we have developed programmes to support improvements in all areas of respiratory medicine, from funding world-class, independent research to pioneering end-of-life care programmes for people with lung disease.
As the public affairs lead you will also be responsible for delivering improvements for patients by implementing lobbying strategies that drive political change.
We are looking for someone who has a strong understanding of the workings of Westminster and the devolved governments and a successful track record of using creative lobbying routes to achieve change.
As a strategic thinker and effective networker and influencer you will have proven success in analysing and reforming policy. An understanding of healthcare scene would be a distinct advantage.
Closing Date: Wednesday 27 July 2010
