We’re looking for an experienced Health Information Manager to join our Team. It's a pivotal, exciting time for Ovarian Cancer Action, as we embark on a new five year strategy. We now need to make faster progress to make ovarian cancer a survivable disease. This role is at the heart of our ability to lead change by raising awareness of the disease, prevention, campaigning, and making the patient voice heard.

Your role will be a key part of our efforts to transform survival rates over ten years and there is a huge opportunity to do this. One fifth of ovarian cancer cases are caused by gene mutations that are passed down through families. More than half of women with ovarian cancer are diagnosed late when survival rates are significantly lower. You will be responsible for all the information we produce for patients and those affected by hereditary gene mutations that cause cancer. You will coordinate programmes to raise awareness with the audiences where we can make the biggest impact. Your work will equip women and families to take action and save lives. You will ensure our information is evidence based, user focused, and meet the needs of all who need it.

You’ll be our resident expert on the ovarian cancer and genetics landscape, and work closely with the whole team to ensure the latest evidence and data underpins all of our activity. Your experience, knowledge and skills to influence will play a huge role in shaping the growth of Ovarian Cancer Action.

Ovarian Cancer Action looks for managers with the ability to lead with confidence, positivity, resilience and passion. This means your attitude to your work and team are as important as operational knowledge and experience within your field.
