  • £27,431 pro-rata
  • Inverness
  • Closing 27th January 2020

The role

Would you like to make a real impact on the lives of people with breast cancer in the North of Scotland? Are you passionate about ensuring that people with breast cancer receive the emotional, social and practical support and information that they need? If so, you could be the Service Development Coordinator we are looking for to join our busy team and help us reach more people through our award-winning face-to-face services, working in partnership with the NHS, voluntary and statutory organisations in locations across the North of Scotland.

About you

Thriving on challenge, you will have the determination to see through the service development process from initial scoping with potential partners to going live, with experience of coordinating and facilitating events or services. Vital will be your confidence in developing and maintaining partnerships with health professionals.

We are looking for a person with excellent organisational and time management skills, excellent oral and written communication skills and the ability to multitask.

About us

We’re excited to announce that in April 2019, Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now united to create one charity for everyone affected by breast cancer. From research to care, our new charity has people affected by the disease at its heart – providing support for today and hope for the future. United, we can carry out even more world-class research, provide even more life-changing support and campaign even more effectively for better services and care.

By bringing together our passion, energy, expertise, funds and networks, we will make greater progress in more effective ways to make sure that, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live and receive the support they need to live well.
