About the Role
‘Even though my life has changed, I now see this as having opportunities and not obstacles... the Moving Forward course helped me to be very grateful for life, to be adaptable and have hope for the future’.
Would you like to make a real impact on the lives of people with breast cancer? At Breast Cancer Care, we are passionate about providing the emotional, social and practical support and information that people need following diagnosis. As the number of people affected by breast cancer in Scotland grows, so does the demand for our services, and we are now looking for a capable and ambitious Services Development Manager to take the lead on delivering our existing portfolio and developing new areas.
Managing your team of permanent and contract staff and supported by our vital services’ volunteers, you will work in close partnership with the NHS, voluntary and statutory organisations to deliver Breast Cancer Care’s strategy, Facing Breast Cancer Together, to increase access, our reach and influence across Scotland.
Thriving on challenge, you will have the determination to see through the service development process from initial scoping to going live. 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. To be successful in this role, you’ll need exceptional organisational and time management skills, and be able to demonstrate excellent verbal and written communication. In return you will be rewarded by making a real difference to the lives of people with breast cancer as well as benefitting from an excellent rewards package including an agile working environment, and a generous annual leave entitlement.

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.
