This is a broad role with ownership and responsibility from day one. Digital and written communications will be a central part of all activities. The aim is to develop and deliver information and resources in a range of formats across appropriate channels to achieve the organisation’s goals of reaching more people, self-care education, advocacy and knowledge sharing.

The post holder is responsible for writing, updating, designing and managing the production of information and marketing products – in coordination with the supervision of the Head of Communications and Marketing – to increase the understanding of, and engagement with their Bristol Whole Life Approach to self-management education for people affected by cancer. This role has an explicit responsibility for account managing the work of the Services team, the client's Academy and Research and Evaluation team.

You will use your outstanding copywriting, editorial and management skills to harness the power of great storytelling and make their content accessible, searchable and spreadable.

You will have the credible expertise required to educate and influence key stakeholders around best practice for user-centred content that meets their strategic objectives. You will also provide support and guidance to content producers around the organisation, leading by example and sharing best practice.

Our client is the leading UK charity specialising in a whole person approach to helping people live well with the impact of cancer. The way in which they help people is known as the Bristol Whole Life Approach which provides a powerful combination of physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual support that is designed to help anyone affected by cancer, at any stage of the disease. They do this through residential courses, group sessions and 1-2-1 complementary therapies.
