Charity registered in Scotland SC037494
We are a Scottish charity set up to provide information, advice and help on prostate health and diseases of the prostate. Nearly 1 in 2 men in Scotland will be affected by prostate disease at some stage of their lives and 1 in 12 will develop prostate cancer. Prostate Cancer is the most common cancer in men in Scotland.
Prostate Scotland, Scotland’s prostate disease charity is looking for an enthusiastic and experienced manager to lead and manage the charity’s COMPASS project.
Following research to understand the experiences of men with prostate cancer in Scotland, our COMPASS project is an ambitious programme to develop a range of support services aimed at plugging the gaps in support provision across Scotland for men with prostate cancer and disease. This exciting role will involve helping develop and take forward the development of a range of services across Scotland. The services include one-to-one support provision, courses and workshops, information and tools, and exercise programmes to improve the physical and mental health and wellbeing of people affected by prostate cancer.
It’s an exciting time to join because we are about to move into the next phase of the project, grow the team, and build on the success of what has been achieved so far. Working closely with third-sector partners, people with lived experience of prostate cancer and disease, and healthcare professionals is critical to success of the project. It will involve a significant amount of liaison at local and regional level, and the development of effective partnerships. The post holder will manage a small multi professional team of staff in the delivery of support services.
The COMPASS project is already starting to make a difference to the lives of those affected by prostate cancer but there is so much more potential. If you are looking for an opportunity to manage and lead a project that aims to improve people’s lives – this could be the opportunity for you.
Prostate Scotland is a small, dynamic and award-winning charity working on prostate cancer and disease in Scotland. The post is available on a 2 Year fixed term contract, with the possibility of a further year’s extension. Some flexibility of hours may be possible.
