The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is seeking an Information Manager to oversee our portfolio of over 70 factsheets, booklets, special information packs and clinical guidelines aimed at people affected by cystic fibrosis, and cystic fibrosis health professionals.
Our award-winning information materials span all aspects of cystic fibrosis, from new diagnosis, to care and treatment of CF, education and employment, and complications such as diabetes. We also publish a suite of guidelines for health professionals to support improved clinical care of people with cystic fibrosis. For someone passionate about empowering people affected by long-term health conditions, through the provision of high-quality health and other information, this will be an exciting and rewarding role.
The Information Manger will oversee all stages of our information production, from identifying topics and involving end-users, to drafting, review, publication and dissemination. The postholder will be expected to demonstrate a strong understanding of best practice in health information provision, and a pro-active and hands-on approach to developing new information materials and maintaining the existing portfolio, including identifying opportunities to promote publications to their target audiences and evaluating impact.
Working on a broad range of both lay and clinical information, an understanding of health / medical terminology and a knack for translating complex health information into lay terms would be an advantage, and an exceptional eye for detail and solid proofreading and editing skills are essential.
Due to the high number of information resources in the Trust’s portfolio, the successful candidate will possess strong organisational skills, as well as an ability to manage competing priorities and meet deadlines, and work within agreed budgets.
As the role is highly collaborative, involving colleagues across the organisation, end-users, external suppliers and expert clinicians, excellent interpersonal skills are a must.
The role also includes line management of the Information Officer.
This is a full-time role with the opportunity to work flexibly and from home.
Benefits include 30 days annual leave and opportunities for learning and development.
