The primary purpose of the Service Manager position is managing the ongoing delivery and development of the three Nottinghamshire Cancer projects, which will constitute eighty percent of the role. These projects include Macmillan Beyond Diagnosis, PCN Cancer Coordinators, and Pre-Op Link workers.
Our volunteer support element is core to these projects together with close links with cancer peer support groups. This will continue to be key as the services change and diversify. These projects are important to the organization and have the potential to grow and replicate in other areas.
In addition to this, the remaining twenty percent of the role will be flexed across identifying innovative opportunities and initiatives within your area, as well as sharing operational responsibilities with the senior team members.
It is important to note that the scope of the role may evolve over time as the organization continues to develop. We encourage our team members to be adaptable and open to new challenges that may arise in the future.
