We're looking for a Head of Content and Media to support our ambitious plans to engage with many more people affected by blood cancer, we need to do more to tell our story and to increase understanding of blood cancer.

We have huge potential to produce the world-class content that can help make this happen. We are lucky to be supported by a large number of people with incredibly inspiring and moving stories, and we are funding some of the most exciting medical research in the UK. There is also too little awareness that blood cancer is the third biggest cancer killer in the UK.

We know we are not making the most of this potential at the moment, and we need the right person to help us unlock it.

As Head of Content and Media, you will lead a team of six that is responsible for delivering a step change in the quality of our content across digital, print and media. The highest priority will be developing outstanding digital content that leads to big increases in engagement levels on our website and social media channels, and we also need to increase levels of media coverage and to consistently produce compelling printed materials.

As well as leading on the strategy and programme of content creation, you will give content advice to colleagues across Bloodwise and the team will act as an in-house agency. In particular, key parts of your role will be advising our Information and Support Services team on engaging ways to present their information, supporting our research communications and giving fundraising colleagues compelling ways to communicate about our work.

You will provide inspirational leadership to the team, building their skills and setting the strategic direction to enable them to work at their best. You will also act as a member of Bloodwise’s leadership team, and work closely with colleagues right across the charity.
