logoThe Cancer Research UK is looking for a Health Information Officer to turn knowledge about cancer prevention, early diagnosis and screening into engaging information for the public, helping shape the policy calls, and influencing others within and outside the organisation. The aim of the Cancer Research UK is to save more lives by preventing, controlling and curing cancer sooner.

It’s an exciting time for the Health Information team – a group of 13 smart and ambitious individuals in a fast-paced environment. The team covers a huge range of topics on cancer prevention and early diagnosis – you could be talking to the media about obesity one minute, and advising on a campaign on bowel screening the next. The variety and fast pace means there’s never a dull moment, and we’re always working towards cutting people’s risk of dying from cancer.

About the role

We are looking for a motivated and talented individual to…

  • Produce accurate and engaging information on cancer risk, prevention, early diagnosis and screening for the public and key health professionals, for a range of outputs including leaflets, newsletters, websites, blogs and social media.
  • Develop a sound knowledge of research evidence relevant to cancer risk, prevention, early diagnosis and screening.
  • Use this knowledge to help guide health awareness campaigns and policy activities.
  • Develop written responses and comments for the media on news stories relevant to this work, and when appropriate act as a media spokesperson for broadcast media.
