We are at a transformative stage of growth and development. Our organisation is growing rapidly, and we are starting to make real and impactful changes to pancreatic cancer in the UK. ‘Taking it on together’ is our five year plan to transform the outlook for people affected by pancreatic cancer and along with the Head of Research, the Research Manager will play a crucial role in delivering this current strategy and supporting the research community to drive the breakthroughs that will transform the lives of people affected by pancreatic cancer.

As we draw towards the end of this strategy, the Research Manager will also help scope and develop our next research strategy, defining innovative research initiatives that will drive an exciting new era in pancreatic cancer research.

Key to this role will be working to ensure that our grants schemes are innovative, meet crucial needs of the research community and are ultimately driven by the experiences of people affected by pancreatic cancer. Our own approach to delivery and communication of these activities must also be of the highest standard and rigour.

This role has a significant part to play in ensuring that Pancreatic Cancer UK continues to be recognised and respected as the leading pancreatic cancer charity in the UK and a leading voice in the research funding community.

You will have run grant rounds, worked with large external committees and also supported teams within your organisation to develop engaging research communications. An excellent verbal and written communicator with a strong ability to network and influence, you will also have strong project management and team working skills.
