Required asap.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the team at Community Action Suffolk, the county's infrastructure organisation for the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector.

With funding from Macmillan Cancer Support we are looking to recruit a Macmillan Community Engagement Coordinator to work alongside the Macmillan Cancer Care Navigators. The Cancer Care Navigator Service helps and supports cancer patients, carers and family. The Navigators also help with patient wellbeing and access to local services.

The Macmillan Community Engagement Coordinator will support the Macmillan Navigators by increasing knowledge and understanding of the community assets available so that Navigators can pass this information and guidance to patients appropriately.

We are looking for someone who has excellent community engagement skills and good knowledge of the issues affecting localities in Suffolk particularly in relation to social isolation.

You will be a confident communicator, have experience of undertaking desktop research and supporting community groups to be resilient and sustainable.

We are happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments individuals may require in the recruitment process, or on commencement of post.
