Work for us

We are currently recruiting for three posts, in two roles:

Macmillan Beyond Diagnosis - Deaf Community Development Coordinator for Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire

£24,000 per annum Full-time (37hrs per week)

Generous package including up to 6% pension contribution to NEST, flexible working and generous holidays.

Self Help UK is proud to be working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to deliver our innovative Beyond Diagnosis Service that provides fully trained volunteers to offer one-to-one practical and emotional support to people affected by cancer and encourage the uptake of cancer self help groups and self-care support. During 2017, the service undertook work with the Deaf, Deafened and Hard of Hearing people to look at ways in which the service could be inclusive of the support needs of people from the Deaf community. Working with Deaf people, this new post will work to co-produce new and innovative ways to support Deaf people along their cancer journey, working with volunteers where appropriate, the project will be led by a steering group of interested people.

We are looking for someone with a mix of skills who understands Deaf culture and community, who has enhanced communications skills with both Deaf, Deafened and hard of hearing people and hearing colleagues, who can maximise the potential for an integrated support service across cancer pathways in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Development experience of new projects would be an advantage or of community development work, co-production or volunteer experience.

You will work closely with Macmillan Cancer Support engagement leads, local and national stakeholders and people affected by cancer to engage the Deaf Community locally in this project, including an in-depth evaluation of the progress of the project to support learning and innovation locally and nationally.

You will work across both counties, having a base at our offices in Carrington, Nottingham with the potential for home working.

Confident in working with health professionals, patients, carers and volunteers, you will bring your passion for helping people to realise their potential to assist their recovery from cancer and working with those affected by cancer to match them with volunteers who will nurture their progress and independence following diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

If you are interested in being part of this exciting new development of our service, we want to hear from you.
