About this opportunity

This online panel is the first of its kind for Cancer Research UK.  As part of the pilot, you’ll test out different online methods e.g. polls, short survey or virtual focus groups. You’ll also help us decide if these methods can be used with more Involvement Network members. You’ll be part of a group of 15 people affected by cancer and you’ll receive consultations on an ad hoc basis to shape and influence a range of projects.

In this role, you will…

  • Get involved from home/remotely using your computer, laptop or tablet.
  • Give us your opinion on projects to shape and influence work across CRUK, using different online methods/software.
  • Hear different perspectives from other people affected by cancer.
  • Help us to decide if the online tools we’re trialling are user-friendly and suitable to use more widely, as part of our standard patient involvement offer.

Please get in touch at if you'd like to have a chat or you’re unsure whether to apply.

Closing date: Friday 15 November.

Location: Online / Anywhere. Consultations may be independent or via online group discussions.
