The successful candidate will be responsible for responding to medical enquiries, managing the review and development of patient and parent resources, including literature and apps, whilst keeping CLDF informed of relevant research in the field and its subsequent dissemination to supporters. The role will be responsible for managing our research hub which supports patients and families to improve the design of research applications made by external groups. The Information and Research Hub Manager will take responsibility for CLDF’s health information campaigns and will elicit the views of our families and young people on a wide range of policy related issues to help inform our voice work. Educated to degree standard with experience of delivering health information to the public through a variety of mediums, including using digital technologies, you will need to demonstrate that you have a thorough knowledge of the workings and structures within the NHS. The successful candidate will need to demonstrate the ability to work in a team, be capable of working independently with initiative and achieve targets and support the charity to achieve its overall mission.
