Job Details


Are you ready to influence the future of cancer care in Scotland and be part of a successful and dynamic campaigns, policy, and public affairs team?

Responsible for furthering Macmillan’s ambition to be a 'force for change', you will help to develop the policy thinking that underpins our influencing work. You will develop relationships with policy makers and represent Macmillan at appropriate meetings and events, while involving people affected by cancer in policy development.

Working closely with our Policy and Campaigns Manager, together with the Macmillan Services team in Scotland, you will gather, analyse, and disseminate information about external policy developments and their implications for Macmillan - as well as drafting policy positions, briefings, statements, and responses to external policy consultations. A strong focus on End of Life Care and Health & Social Care Integration will be the key workloads.

Your track record will show the application of strong analytical skills, coupled with well-developed communication and influencing skills. Experience of developing effective policy in a complex environment and of working with government and/or other regulatory bodies, is essential. You must also be able to demonstrate your understanding of the policy context in Scotland – and a commitment to fully understanding Policy as the key role of the job.

In return for your enthusiasm and commitment? We commit to developing you and offer benefits including a 34.5 hour week (with early finish on Fridays), private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers and generous annual leave.
