We're looking to recruit a Development Worker - Localities as part of the Greater Manchester Cancer Screening Engagement programme.

The post-holder will be responsible for engaging with the VCSE sector in the 10 local authority areas of Greater Manchester, whilst working more intensively in localities with the greatest need to improve uptake of screening – currently Salford, Manchester, Bolton, Oldham, Rochdale / Middleton / Heywood.

They will be required to work as part of a wider Delivery and Engagement Team, headed up by VSNW, which includes Engagement and Development Workers who are focusing on BME communities’ participation and the recruitment, retention and training of volunteer Cancer Champions.

The post-holder will need to be a confident self-starter, with significant knowledge of Greater Manchester and its VCSE sector. Excellent communication skills are paramount for this role and previous experience of community engagement and / or VCSE network development is highly desirable.

Knowledge of cancer would be a bonus, although some experience of working within a health and wellbeing environment will suffice. Our chosen candidate will also have a clear understanding of population health challenges and an ability to work flexibly and on their own initiative. This is a flagship initiative for Salford CVS and we are looking for someone who thinks this an exciting role that they would enjoy developing.
