Engagement Co-ordinator

Permanent

£27,000 - £32,000

Our Engagement Co-ordinators are key to supporting people affected by cancer in influencing policy and service delivery and supporting our inclusion and diversity agenda.

As part of the North West Service Development team you’ll be putting your excellent communication, interpersonal and facilitation skills into play to influence and inform your target audience. 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.

Someone who thrives on engaging with different communities to promote the developing support and involvement offerings, your success in the role will be built on your experience in working with groups and volunteers in a community based setting, development of community partnerships and ability to plan community networking and outreach events. In addition to your excellent people skills, your track record shows your ability to analyse qualitative data to report outcomes and be confident to take the lead on project development and project management.

Macmillan is committed to actively developing you. Your benefits will include BUPA, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers, generous leave, and interest free loans for season ticket and gym membership.

The role is home based and involves daily travel in the normal course of the work and therefore a current valid driver licence is essential. Some evening and out-of-hours work will also be required, and occasional overnight stays.

This role is likely to be focused on work in South Cumbria, Lancashire and Isle of Man.
