Role

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

We believe that information is key for people to be able to understand their diagnosis and make decisions to play an active role in their treatment and care. This vital service is provided by the Patient Information team at Myeloma UK, who ensure complex medical and scientific language is translated into clear and concise information for a patient audience.

The role of the Patient Information Officer is to maintain and develop reliable and trustworthy printed and online information (written and audio/visual) on myeloma and its related conditions for patients, their family, and carers.

About you

This role is ideally suited to someone who wants to use their medical or life sciences background to develop clear information to help those affected by myeloma.

We’re looking for someone with an eye for detail who can research topics and simplify complex scientific and medical information into accessible and patient-friendly language.

If you understand the power of good information, have excellent research, writing, editing and proofing skills, and the desire to support and inform people living with cancer, we’re keen to hear from you.

Experience in writing healthcare information materials, developing content for information events and general health and cancer knowledge would be an advantage for this role.

However, we are happy to consider candidates with different experiences of writing and producing content, which may include university, voluntary or personal experiences, and graduates earlier in their career are welcome to apply
