Full Job Description

Myeloma UK is the only UK charity focused on myeloma and its related conditions. We ensure people affected by myeloma get the support, information and treatments they need and fund essential research towards a cure. We are here for people affected by myeloma, for healthcare professionals and researchers and anyone who wants to be part of the cure, to make sure no-one faces myeloma alone because together we are the cure. It is an exciting time to be joining Myeloma UK having recently launched our new strategy. As an organisation seeking to step-change its reach and impact, we have a strong commitment to colleague wellbeing and acknowledge the importance of building a positive culture in which all staff can flourish. Reflecting this, and to support our vision for a world where myeloma doesn t exist, we are looking to recruit into the newly created leadership role of Director of People and Culture. Responsible for developing and embedding Myeloma UK s first ever people strategy, you will lead our colleague engagement and equality and diversity agendas and embed our defined core behaviours and values, ensuring the implementation of an ethical and transparent approach to all activities. The role will also provide you with the opportunity to play a major role in shaping the strategic development and future direction of Myeloma UK, working with colleagues at the cutting edge of myeloma research, advocacy, and support. Myeloma UK is committed to building a diverse workforce and leadership team that reflects the communities we serve, and we require our new Director of People and Culture to share our passion, and ultimately embed a more proactive approach to Myeloma UK s work on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. We are looking for a passionate, transformational and highly experienced leader with relevant strategic HR experience, coupled with the ability to engage, inspire and influence across all levels within an organisation., None specified

Myeloma UK is the only organisation in the UK dealing exclusively with myeloma – the second most common form of blood cancer. It originates in the bone marrow and currently affects around 17,500 people in the UK. Whilst treatable, myeloma is not yet curable. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure. We are dedicated to ensuring that patients get access to the right treatment at the right time, and to improving standards of treatment and care through research, education and awareness raising. We also provide a range of information and support services to patients, family and friends to help deal with a diagnosis of myeloma.
