Harris Hill is proud to be partnering with Leukaemia Care in its search for a new Patient Advocacy Manager.
Based in Worcester but working across the UK, particularly London, and with some international travel, the Patient Advocacy Manager will work closely with – and, when needed, deputise for – the Patient Advocacy Director on the development and implementation of campaigns and policy initiatives to drive change to improve the lives of people affected by leukaemia and other blood cancers.
Responsibilities for this post are wide ranging and hands on. As well as horizon scanning, policy advice and information gathering, you’ll represent Leukaemia Care on key campaigning groups such as Cancer 52 and the Cancer Campaigning Group, as well as engage with MPs, peers, political groups and other relevant stakeholders through networking, lobbying and partnership working. Moreover, you’ll work closely with the Communications team, preparing press releases and designing and implementing campaigns.
Whether you come from a policy, campaigns or advocacy background, you’ll have experience of campaign design and implementation and an understanding of how media and broader communications feed into campaigning. You’ll also have excellent analytical and research skills, along with experience of senior-level stakeholder engagement and management, particularly in political circles.
