Based at Counting House, London Bridge
The Policy, Knowledge and Impact team are responsible for using scientific, clinical and health performance data to establish what the organisation thinks about the key issues affecting men with or at risk of prostate cancer. They influence for policy change too, working alongside other teams to make sure men access the best diagnosis, treatment and support and they make sure we measure the impact all our work is having so that we can know we’re improving men’s entire prostate cancer journey.
The Policy, Knowledge and Impact Co-ordinator plays a critical role in supporting these teams to deliver. From horizon scanning to make sure we’re ahead of the curve on external policy and practice changes to making sure we’re planning effectively to prepare our reactive media, the coordinator is critical to making sure these teams are dynamic, fast-paced and able to adeptly flex to the external world.
This role is also an opportunity to build policy skills, to conduct behind the scenes research, to build insight into key stakeholders and to support the analysis of data that enables us to make an evidence-led case for change. There’s event organisation, web content development and support for the teams’ financial reporting too.
What we want from you
You have a passion for policy development, an understanding of the need to support policy with evidence and can get to grips with data, analysing it to identify interesting trends or to highlight key findings. You know how to conduct online research, to produce web content and you’re comfortable contacting influential and important stakeholders. You can also organise events, travel and large-scale meetings and are comfortable producing minutes on complex topics.
