Business Engagement Advisor
£47,500 - £52,500
You may have experience of working in the 3rd or Public sector in a role which connected you to the business community. If so , we have a fantastic new role as our Advisor for Business Engagement.
About the role
Everything that Macmillan does to address the needs of people with cancer is based on a sophisticated methodology for engaging with people and with those who can help them. The Specialist Advisory Division is the engine-room which houses Macmillan’s knowledge of how to do this. Key audiences of people and communities, the cancer workforce, businesses, and care delivery systems enable Macmillan to achieve long-term and lasting outcomes for people with cancer.
This role will be supporting Macmillan’s subject matter expertise in the field of Business Engagement under the supervision of the Specialist Advisor for Business Engagement. The advisor will help drive our work in this area; representing Macmillan externally, and supporting the agenda internally to ensure that our work in this area is well defined and articulated, effective and at the cutting edge of good and emerging practice.
You will be a strong and influential leader who has a successful track record of supporting and delivering innovative engagement approaches, specifically with credible knowledge of doing so with businesses and the private sector. Perhaps you currently work in the corporate sector and have a desire to see businesses making a positive difference to communities, or you may sit within a corporate partnerships team in the public or 3rd Sector? Or do you have experience leading within a Corporate Social Responsibility function in the private sector? Ultimately, you will comfortably demonstrate experience navigating complex and matrix working settings, and the ability to forge productive collaborative relationships with stakeholders at all levels of seniority.
At Macmillan, our ambition is to reach and improve the lives of everyone affected by cancer and inspire millions to do the same. We are a source of support: providing practical, clinical, emotional, and financial support. We are also a force for change: listening to people affected by cancer and working together to influence and lobby for better cancer care.
