Job Details

The role

Due to changes in the team, including internal promotion, it means that we are looking for 2 new policy managers to join our policy evidence and influencing team to drive forward critical areas of our work and deliver change for people affected by breast cancer.

Role 1 will manage our work on risk reduction and early diagnosis. This will build on our recent work on the Faster Diagnosis Standard and breast screening and lead new work on reducing the risk of developing breast cancer. This role will manage a senior policy officer.

Role 2 will manage our work on treatment. This includes our hugely successful work ensuring access to life-changing drugs for breast cancer patients, improving access to breast reconstruction surgery and new work on clinical trials. This role will manage a senior policy officer and a policy officer.

In both roles you’ll use insight from patients and healthcare professionals, data and research to develop policy positions and build strong relationships with external stakeholders that enable you to influence to deliver these. You’ll work with colleagues across the team and organisation to take our priorities to supporters, their MPs and the media.

About you

With experience of working in relevant policy roles to deliver significant change, you’ll be an excellent communicator, well-organised and able to work under pressure to tight deadlines. You’ll be confident working with a wide range of people and have experience of managing people. You’ll also have an excellent understanding of the policy and influencing landscape that Breast Cancer Now works in.

About us

We’re Breast Cancer Now, the research and support charity. We’re the place to turn to for anything and everything to do with breast cancer. However you’re experiencing breast cancer, we’re here.

Why? Because we believe that by 2050, everyone diagnosed with breast cancer will live – and be supported to live well. But to create that future, we need to act now.
