About Us

We're the UK's leading charity for Crohn's and Colitis. Right now, an estimated 500,000 people in the UK are living with a lifelong disease that can profoundly affect their quality of life. And, because of the stigma surrounding these conditions, thousands of people are suffering in silence. But we are here to support and champion their cause.  We are growing our amazing team to deliver new and ambitious plans, you couldn’t be joining us at a more exciting time!

The role

We have an exciting opportunity for a Knowledge and Information Manager to lead our recently expanded Knowledge and Information team. In this role you will have responsibility for leading the development of our highly regarded information and resources to support and empower everyone affected by Crohn’s or Colitis. This includes our evidence-based online and printed publications, web content, research summaries and other information.

About you

You will be skilled in translating complex medical and health information into engaging and accessible patient information and have experience of working with patients and healthcare professionals to develop information resources in line with recognised standards.

You’ll be:-

  • educated to degree level in a scientific discipline or have the equivalent experience
  • experienced in appraising research and translating this for patients and the public
  • proficient in measuring the effectiveness of a promotion, and dissemination and use of information
  • effective in managing and leading a team

Our location

We are based in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, so we are easily accessible by road and rail. But one thing we have learned from the pandemic, is that we are able to work very effectively from home. In this role, there is plenty of scope for doing that although there will be times when you will need to be at face-to-face meetings. It is possible therefore you could live almost anywhere in the country. If you want to be considered for the role but are worried about location, talk to us – it may work!
