Living With and Beyond Cancer Programme Manager
Cancer Services

Hours: 30 hours per week
£31,365 to £37,890 pa (pro rata)

Essential Requirements: NMC Registration

Do you want to be part of the innovative health and wellbeing team? We require a dynamic and experienced nurse to work alongside the Macmillan Health and Wellbeing and Information Manager as well as with the cancer specialist teams at Harrogate and District Foundation Trust.

This is an exciting role which will aim to improve the lives of those people within the Harrogate community living with and beyond cancer. As programme manager you will be responsible for ensuring all teams are developing services to address key issues which ensure patients and their families have access to the care and support they will need to live with a cancer diagnosis in a way that makes sense for their own individual lives, from diagnosis onwards.

This will include:

  • Evaluation and monitoring of holistic needs assessments for all patients with a diagnosis of cancer at key points throughout their journey.

  • Provide education and support to patients through health and wellbeing events and programmes to ensure supported self-management of long term consequences of treatment.

Along with the support of a Cancer Care Coordinator you will be expected to collect key data for the national cancer dashboard. It is expected that regular reports will be produced and presented to senior managers.

This role will involve engaging with key individuals across the organisation and within the community setting to ensure communication between secondary and primary care is as comprehensive and robust as possible.

You will act as line manager to the cancer care co-ordinator, ensuring that key objectives jointly identified are met to ensure the smooth running of the service and provision of timely access to advice and support for patients and their families.

The post holder is required to build networks and partnerships with organisations within and outside of the NHS to improve patient experience and choice. For example physical activity partners within the community and activities related to social prescribing.

For more information please contact Sarah Grant -Macmillan Health and Wellbeing and Information Manager on 01423 557317.

We welcome applicants with lived experience of providing unpaid care and/or support to a family member or friend with a disability, physical or mental health condition, addiction or other healthcare needs.

We take pride in being a partner organisation in the Yorkshire and Humber Clinical Research Network and are committed to supporting research activity as part of the services we provide. We have research projects running across all specialties which are providing evidence and informing local and national practice.

Applicants who require Tier 2 immigration status to work in the UK are welcome, but such candidates will not be appointed to the post if there are a sufficient number of other suitable candidates, as the employing body will, in those circumstances, be unable to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test requirements, as required by UKVI. All applicants must state their current immigration status, including expiry dates on their application.

All job offers are subject to Agenda for Change T&C’s, excluding medical posts. Offers may also be subject to a Standard or Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service certificate, dependent on the position.

Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship

Applications from job seekers who require current Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the current Resident Labour Market Test which will be in place until the end of December 2020. UK Visas and Immigration requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, have had to present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) are also subject to this requirement.
