We’re looking for a strategic, visionary leader with exceptional communication skills and experience of leading a multifunctional team that embraces policy, campaigns, patient involvement, marketing, brand, VIP/Ambassadors and communications, to help take our brand to the next level and enhance our impact further. A strategic Director of Engagement with exceptional communication skills , experienced at managing stakeholder relationships at a senior level, and adept at the role we play in influencing national public policy.

An understanding of the key health and social care issues, NHS structures and the know how to engage effectively with Westminster and the devolved assemblies in Wales and Northern Ireland, are important aspects to this role.

You will be an experienced ambassador who will drive our brand internally and externally and be accountable for ensuring the charity’s reputation is guarded, managed, and enhanced.

Collegiate and driven to succeed, you will work closely with colleagues in the executive leadership team to lead the charity towards continued success. Whatever your background, you must be able to demonstrate a real understanding of what motivates people to work or volunteer with us and the complex, often highly challenging and emotive environment we operate in.
