Job Title: Head of Policy
Working For: Target Ovarian Cancer
Salary: £40,000 - £45,000 per annum gross + benefits
11 women die every day from ovarian cancer, and ovarian cancer faces chronic underfunding compared with other cancers. Awareness of ovarian cancer is low, with three quarters of women diagnosed once the cancer has already spread. Enough is enough. It’s time for you to TAKE OVAR.
This role will transform outcomes for women with ovarian cancer. The successful candidate will build relations with civil servants, politicians and decision makers. You will develop an in-depth knowledge of the policy landscape and identify where we can have the greatest impact. You will be innovative and adaptable. You will want to see policy put into practice and have the skills and knowledge to achieve that.
This is a new role and you will be working closely with the Director of Public Affairs and Services to deliver a step change in our influencing activity. Women with ovarian cancer, and their family and friends, need change now and this role will be instrumental in delivering that.
Closing Date: 24 November 2017
First interviews will be on 30 November/4 December.
