Bowel Cancer UK is the UK's leading bowel cancer charity. We're determined to save lives and improve the quality of life of everyone affected by bowel cancer. We support and fund targeted research, provide expert information and support to patients and their families, educate the public and professionals about the disease and campaign for early diagnosis and access to best treatment and care.
A key focus of our strategy is that awareness of symptoms needs to be higher and that people need to act on those symptoms quickly. As Awareness Officer you’ll play a central role in helping us achieve this, by supporting the development and delivery of our national awareness roadshow.
We're looking for someone dynamic, proactive and passionate about raising awareness and early diagnosis. You’ll work to further develop and deliver our national awareness roadshow, focusing on symptoms awareness, screening uptake and promoting our services. We deliver approximately 10 roadshows each year and we’ve identified areas across the UK where we can have the most impact on bowel cancer outcomes. You’ll help us ensure we reach as many people as possible at each roadshow. You’ll work with a wide range of teams in the organisation and communities externally to do so. This is an exciting opportunity to make a real impact on earlier diagnosis of bowel cancer.
You’ll have experience of health awareness raising, community engagement and working with a wide range of teams. You’ll be confident supporting with project co-ordination and contributing to event planning and marketing. You’ll also be responsible for collecting and analysing monitoring and evaluation data and reporting findings in a professional way.
If you fit our person specification, have a can-do attitude and are willing to roll your sleeves up and pitch in to get a job done then this might be the role for you. In return you‘ll join our brilliant team, be able to work flexibly and finish each day knowing you’ve played a central role in supporting people affected by bowel cancer.
