Pancreatic cancer is a tough one but we’re taking it on. We are supporting those affected by the disease, investing in ground breaking research, lobbying for greater recognition of pancreatic cancer, and being a voice for everyone involved in the fight.

Our work in Scotland is a central part of our activity to take on pancreatic cancer. Researchers in Scotland are leading the way in developing new exciting approaches to tackle pancreatic cancer, particularly through the Precision Panc programme and we are delighted to be the patient engagement partner for this programme. Last year we also funded our first ever Future Leader’s Academy at the Beatson Centre in Scotland to further drive our ambition to attract the next generation of bright minds into the pancreatic cancer field. As a charity we have been working hard to push pancreatic cancer up the political agenda in Scotland, through the Cross party group and events and a debate in the Scottish Parliament, working with some very dedicated supporters.

But we have much more to do, particularly to make sure that everyone diagnosed in Scotland knows about the services we provide and has access to our face to face services to reduce isolation and improve quality of life.


The Senior Operations Manager Scotland will be a key member of the Operations Directorate, responsible for the successful growth of Pancreatic Cancer UK’s presence and activities in Scotland. This is an exciting part-time opportunity for a proactive and determined person to deliver outcomes in Scotland, enabling us to reach more people affected by pancreatic cancer.

You will have a strong track record of service delivery, ideally in health and social care, with the drive to grow our offer to patients and carers in Scotland. Confident  representing a charity or cause at a strategic level, you will develop effective relationships with health professionals and other partners, raising awareness of the charity’s work, as well as lobbying and campaigning for change. You will have the support of the Policy & Campaigns and the Services teams based in London to achieve this. Recruiting and managing a network of volunteers is an important aspect of the role, together with our Senior Community and Involvement Manager.

This is a great place to work with highly committed, ambitious and friendly staff. If you work collaboratively internally and externally and are self-motivated to develop and implement our services targets in support of our cause, we would like to hear from you.

An Enhanced criminal record check will be undertaken if you are offered the role.

To apply please read the job pack and send your CV and completed supporting statement.
