As treatments improve, more and more people are living with cancer. They need more than medical help – practical, emotional and financial support is essential in their daily lives. In this role with our Cancer Information Development Team, you can help change lives by providing that support.

Working with a team of medical and editorial professionals, you will assist in the production of audio resources, help with the editing and proofreading of written material, and support the process of reviewing our core content.

It???s a wide-ranging role that will require you to demonstrate assertive behaviour to ensure reviewers are kept on track. You'll also need to use your excellent communications skills while managing third-party suppliers. Your other duties will include the administration and support duties that help keep our team an efficient and effective one. So it???s essential that you demonstrate the IT, administration, time-management and organisational skills that will support you in delivering accurate and timely work across multiple strands of activity.??

What we do is all about effective communication. Whether it's written work or you are dealing with people by phone or in person, your communication skills must be excellent and matched by an ability to build highly effective working relationships. Working with complex and detailed information about cancer and its effects on people's lives doesn't just take good proofreading skills. It???s rewarding work, but can be distressing and requires an ability to balance empathy with professionalism.

And in return for your enthusiasm and commitment? We commit to actively develop you and offer excellent benefits including a 34.5 hour week (with an early finish on Friday), BUPA, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers, generous annual leave, and interest-free loans for season ticket and gym membership.
