After 5 years working with Bloodwise our current Head of Policy and Campaigns is leaving to take up an exciting opportunity to move to the USA. Whilst we are sad to see him go we are now looking for an experienced, dynamic and influential new Head to take up the reigns.

With a new CEO having joined this September and important progress in the field of blood cancer research on the horizon, now is an exciting time to join Bloodwise – the blood cancer research charity.

Building on the existing foundations, the new Head of Policy and Campaigns will enable Bloodwise to become the informed, responsive and proactive voice of blood cancer. Using your excellent communication skills and ability to make strategic connections between information and audiences, you will help the organisation to translate evidence into propositions that can influence policy and service provision.

With an in depth understanding of the political, healthcare and pharmaceutical landscapes and your network of contacts, you will develop mutually beneficial partnerships based on informed and sustainable solutions. Working closely with the Director of Research, Director of Patient Experience, the CEO and Executive Team you will explore opportunities for campaigns that achieve the best possible outcomes for blood cancer patients and their carers.

If this sounds like the role you are looking for and you feel you have the knowledge, skills and experience we need, please apply with a covering letter setting out how you match the requirements of the job specification and a CV via our website by 09:00 Monday 25 September 2017.
