Head of Campaigns

Myeloma UK invests in driving better patient outcomes through a comprehensive early diagnosis programme, cutting-edge research, sector leading treatment access, our award winning information and support programmes, and pioneering healthcare services improvement.

Our community consists of the 24,000 people living with the incurable blood cancer myeloma, as well as those with related conditions including MGUS (a non- cancerous condition that can increase the chance of developing myeloma), smouldering myeloma (an early form of myeloma) and AL amyloidosis (a rare build-up of protein occasionally associated with myeloma). Including our patients with related conditions, the population we represent is over 63,000 people. Our long-term ambition is to make myeloma history, but we recognise that is a challenging process. As we work to that ambition, we are committed to providing every patient with an empowered present and a hopeful future.

An important part of making that a reality is presenting our work to supporters, partners, decision-makers and the media in a focused, engaging and effective way. Articulating how our work creates meaningful change for patients, and where we still need further change to happen, is paramount to our strategy. The Head of Campaigns will work within the wider Marketing & Communications Directorate, responsible for a team consisting of a Press and Content Officer, a Senior Scientific Knowledge and Communications Officer, plus a Scientific Communications Officer. They will also be working with the seven-strong digital team in the directorate who cover the website, CRM, social media, design, and production.

This role sits within the Myeloma UK Marketing and Communications Team. The primary purpose of this role is to lead the development and delivery of engaging, purpose driven campaigns, and build the media profile and public affairs capacity at Myeloma UK. As a member of the Marketing and Communications department, the Head of Campaigns will contribute towards the delivery of the organisation’s strategic, operational, and departmental plans.

A blended approach to working is in place, however travel to the Head Office in Edinburgh will be required and a degree of flexibility in your approach is needed.
