Are you looking for a new challenge for 2013? Have you ever thought about applying your nursing experience in a different setting? If you’ve got an interest in health promotion and you are an excellent and confident communicator then this could be the perfect opportunity for you!

We’re looking for a motivated Nurse to be part of our team in London. The post will involve working on one of four Cancer Research UK ‘walk in’ roadshow units. You’ll be mainly based in London and surrounding areas within a 35 mile radius, visiting communities who are at higher risk of cancer.

Together with the Senior Cancer Awareness Nurse you will engage people face-to-face, providing information on cancer prevention, screening and early detection. The role will also involve other cancer awareness outreach activity in the local community.

Our Cancer Awareness Roadshow was founded in 2006 in partnership with Ronan Keating and the Marie Keating Foundation. It plays a vital role in achieving our vision of beating cancer by directly reaching people most in need with tailored health messages, encouraging them to make positive changes to their health and signposting to local health services. The Roadshow currently consists of four mobile units that visit some of the UK’s most deprived and diverse communities in the UK, where cancer incidence and mortality rates are significantly above average. For more information please see the Cancer Research UK Roadshow website.

Nurses will be based regionally but will be required to travel to other areas in the UK for short periods. Cancer Research UK will provide introductory training and orientation.

The role is fixed-term until March 2014 and applicants must be available for training on the following dates:

•    5th & 6th March 2013 (taking place in Newcastle – accommodation and travel will be provided)
•    11th – 13th March (taking place in London)
