About us

Myeloma UK is the only organisation in the UK dealing exclusively with myeloma – the second most common form of blood cancer. It originates in the bone marrow and currently affects around 17,500 people in the UK. Whilst treatable, myeloma is not yet curable.

Our ultimate goal is to find a cure. We are dedicated to ensuring that patients get access to the right treatment at the right time, and to improving standards of treatment and care through research, education and awareness raising. We also provide a range of information and support services to patients, family and friends to help deal with a diagnosis of myeloma.

About the role

This role sits within the Healthcare Advocacy Services Directorate, providing administrative support to the patient information and healthcare professional programmes.

You will be responsible for processing all patient information requests, together with subscriptions and mailings for our patient information magazine Myeloma Matters and our newsletter AL amyloidoisis Matters.

You will have responsibility for stock control of patient information publications and updating the publication order form with new resources.

Recording patient information and healthcare professional programme activities on the Raiser’s Edge database will be a key part of this role.

Working with the Healthcare Professional Programme team, you will be carrying out administration for their online resources including the Myeloma Nurse Learning Programme, Myeloma Academy and e-bulletins.

In addition, you will be providing holiday and sick leave cover for the Myeloma UK Receptionist as and when required.

About you

To be successful in this role, you will have previous experience of working in an administrative support role, and will have strong organisational and communication skills, with the ability to communicate with stakeholders and colleagues at all levels.

You will have the ability to prioritise, work to tight deadlines and work well under pressure. You will need excellent IT skills with a high level of attention to detail. Experience in using databases, particularly Raiser’s Edge, would be an advantage for this post.
