With the two million people in the UK living with cancer now predicted to increase to four million by 2030, it’s a very challenging ambition that demands we use evidence and insight to inform the strategic decisions critical to delivery.
Your role in that will be to support the management of our academic research activity. This would include contributing to the administration and management of the annual research call; supporting our existing portfolio of grant funded research; communication of findings through a variety of media (reports, events, meetings, conferences etc.); and quality assurance.
Day-to-day activities of the role will include reporting on key performance issues, legal compliance, and monitoring expenditure. You must be well organised with good interpersonal skills. Experience of managing grant funding rounds and working in an academic research setting would be a distinct advantage.
In return for all you do for us, we commit to actively developing you and offer excellent benefits including a 34.5 hour week (with early finish on Fridays), private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers, generous leave, and interest free loans for season ticket and gym membership.
Please submit your application as soon as possible as we reserve the right to change the closing date of our vacancies.
We aim to encourage a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their strengths so we seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool, reflecting the diverse nature of our society.
We will support you throughout the recruitment process with any reasonable adjustments required in accordance with the Equality Act. Please contact the Recruitment Team if you require support.
