Job Description

We’re looking for an enthusiastic communications professional with experience in developing short-form content to join us in a pivotal new role working within the communications team to reshape the way we tell the story of blood cancer and the people it impacts across our digital channels.

Our strategy has set the ambitious goal of firmly establishing blood cancer as a category. Blood Cancer is the 5th most common type of cancer and yet understanding of it is very low. We want the country as a whole to understand that blood cancer is as big a health challenge as the other four common types of cancer, so we’re looking for a talented individual to help bring this to life through content.

Our strategic objective of extending our reach, along with our brand focus on amplifying the authentic voice of our community, means that the key focus of this role will be on producing shortform video content and establishing and supporting a group of people affected by blood cancer to create their own.

What employees are saying

"There has been a significant shift in our ways of working over the last few years. It feels as though it has become the norm to work as flexibly as you feel comfortable with. There are periods in the year where it gets extremely busy, but the skills we're developing in house are focused on time management and prioritisation to support all staff to feel confident to challenge or offer alternative solutions if capacity is stretched."
