Role

About us

Myeloma UK is the only organisation in the UK dealing exclusively with the blood cancer myeloma and related conditions. We are committed to bringing together the best and brightest people to help us ensure that every patient has an empowered present and a hopeful future. We are now looking to appoint a Patient Information Officer to join our Healthcare Advocacy Services Team.

To realise our long-term ambition to make myeloma history, we relentlessly pursue better outcomes for myeloma patients and patients with related conditions through a comprehensive early diagnosis programme, a unique research portfolio, our treatment access strategy, information and support services, and healthcare improvement services.

About the role

The role of Patient Information Officer is to maintain, develop and deliver accurate printed and online information (written and audio/visual) on myeloma and its related conditions for patients, their family and carers, as well as ensuring complex medical and scientific language is translated into clear and concise information for a patient audience.

The post holder will work with colleagues to ensure close communication and sharing of information across the organisation and report progress regularly to their line manager.

About you

Do you have an eye for detail and experience at writing for different audiences and across different channels? Are you able to simplify complex scientific and medical information into lay terms?

Our ideal candidate is someone who has excellent copy writing and proofing skills, who can manage their own workload and who is confident at liaising with a wide range of stakeholders.

Previous experience in writing information materials for patients, working directly with patients, carers and family members, developing content for information events and general health and cancer knowledge would be an advantage for this role.
