Job Description

We are recruiting to our nurse team on the Macmillan Support Line and would love to hear from you.

Our Information Nurse Specialists on the Macmillan Support Line talk to people every day to help them understand their cancer diagnosis, treatments, side effects, and how to cope during and after cancer. People affected by cancer tell us that having the information and support they need makes a world of difference to them.

Recognising you as a Macmillan Professional, we will offer the opportunity to develop your knowledge and give you experience in an environment where you will become expert in providing information to people affected by cancer. We will help you develop skills in a multi-channel environment and gain valuable experience from working in a growing and exciting area of clinical care.

You will be a resource for colleagues in Macmillan who will draw on your background to ensure the charity is focused on the needs of people affected by cancer. A registered nurse, you will understand what good communication looks like and would be willing to develop clinical information and support skills through telephone and digital channels.

In return for the commitment and skills you’ll bring to our friendly, supportive and high-performing team, we will commit to actively developing you in the role. We offer excellent benefits including continuing to contribute to NHS pension schemes, paid registration fees, CPD and revalidation support, private medical insurance, life assurance, childcare vouchers, generous annual leave, and interest-free loans for season ticket and gym membership.

We want to be there for more people living with and affected by cancer at their time of need.  We are currently going through a period of change to consider extending opening hours, which includes evening and weekend working.

Working hours: You will work 3 days per week on a shift system basis. The service operates 365 days per year and hours will be worked between 08:00-20:15, Friday to Monday. Your hourly rate will vary depending on the shift pattern. Increased rates will apply to weekends and bank holidays. Where a bank holiday is worked, a day would not be deducted from the standard 8 days entitlement, allowing you to take this day off at another time. Time off in lieu will also apply to hours worked on Christmas Day and Easter Sunday.

We would be happy to talk to you about the role or arrange an informal visit after shortlisting and before interview so you can understand the service we provide. An informal visit before interview is recommended.

Informal visits will be arranged after short listing, or if you have any questions, please contact Kate Goldie Senior Macmillan Information Nurse on

Interviews the week of 3rd September.


Please submit your application as soon as possible as we reserve the right to change the closing date of our vacancies.

We aim to encourage a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their strengths so we seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool, reflecting the diverse nature of our society.

We will support you throughout the recruitment process with any reasonable adjustments required in accordance with the Equality Act. Please contact the Recruitment Team if you require support.
