A dynamic and expanding charitable organisation wants to employ a support services officer.

'You will be required to manage the patient resource centre and oversee day-to-day operations and activities,' said Daisy Kwan, the HKBCF's executive director. 'You will also provide psychosocial support services, including running patient support groups and one-to-one counselling sessions for breast cancer patients, and handling the support service hotline.' Other duties include conducting public education programmes on breast health and cancer care and working on relevant publications and resource materials. The new recruit will also lead the support services team, ensuring delivery of quality support services. A recognised degree in social work with at least eight years' relevant experience is required. 'You should be a registered social worker with counselling experience,' Ms Kwan said. A good command of spoken and written English and Cantonese, and proficient computer skills, are essential, as are excellent inter-personal and communication skills. 'You should be cheerful, caring and passionate about helping cancer patients,' she said. 'The ideal candidate is resourceful and knowledgeable about the latest medical, paramedical and psychosocial developments.'
