About the Role
Are you passionate about ensuring that people with breast cancer and their families get the best possible support? At Breast Cancer Care, we are committed to providing the emotional, social and practical support and information that people need following a diagnosis of breast cancer.
Due to the expansion of our unique support services for people affected by breast cancer, we are now looking for a capable and ambitious Services Development Manager to take the lead on ensuring successful delivery of our existing portfolio, and negotiate new services, working in partnership with the NHS, voluntary and statutory organisations in locations across Scotland.
You will be responsible for managing a team of permanent and contract staff and supporting our vital services’ volunteers, working closely with the other services’ teams to deliver Breast Cancer Care’s organisational strategy, Facing Breast Cancer Together, which sets out ambitious targets to increase access, our reach and influence across the UK.
Thriving on challenge, you will have the determination to see through the service set-up process from initial discussions to operational delivery. With a willingness to travel, you will have proven people management skills, and the ability to work as part of a busy team and with other teams across different geographical sites. It goes without saying that you’ll need exceptional organisational and time management skills, and be able to demonstrate excellent verbal and written communication.
Breast Cancer Care is the only specialist UK-wide charity dedicated to providing support for people affected by breast cancer. We’re excited to tell you that in April 2019, we’re merging with the UK’s leading breast cancer research charity.
From research to care, our new charity will have people affected by breast cancer at its heart – providing support for today and hope for the future. United, we’ll have the ability to carry out even more world-class research, provide even more life-changing support and campaign more effectively for better services and care.
