Are you someone who thrives on engaging with different communities? Do you want to use your skills and expertise to really make a difference and help support people living with cancer? If so, this could be the role for you.

About the role
Our Engagement Leads are key to providing the support and structure to enable people living with cancer to shape and influence service delivery, policy and our equality, inclusion and diversity agenda. The role is home based and involves daily travel covering East and West Midlands in the normal course of the work and therefore a current valid driving licence is essential and/or access to alternative means of transport. Some evening and out-of-hours work will also be required, and occasional travel to other parts of the UK with occasional overnight stays.

Please note all candidates are subject to a criminal record check for this role. This cost will be covered by Macmillan and all enhancements must be declared prior to the check.

About you
As part of the Midlands geographic team you’ll put your excellent communication, interpersonal and facilitation skills into play to develop trusted relationships with your target audiences. Your drive and knowledge of how the health and social care sector is structured will enable you to implement a person-centred approach via the involvement of others.

You will bring experience in working with groups and volunteers in a community-based setting, development of community partnerships and the ability to plan community networking and outreach events.

You can demonstrate the ability to collect and analyse qualitative data, to report outcomes and be confident to take the lead on project development and project management.

About us
Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the largest and most loved charities in the UK. We support millions of people living with cancer in the UK live life as fully as they can, by providing emotional, practical and financial support.

Our values are at the heart of who we are and everything we do, inspiring our thinking and guiding our actions. We strive to build a more diverse organisation, where everyone feels empowered to bring their best self to work.

Recruitment Process
The deadline for applications is Wednesday 8th March 2023, with virtual interviews taking place on Friday 17 March and Monday 20 March.

In order to ensure fairness and consistency to select the best candidate for this role, all of our applications are anonymised up until an interview has been confirmed so that shortlisting is based solely upon the suitability of the candidate’s experience.
