Current vacancies

Communications Assistant

Supporting the Marketing and Communications Manager with day to day administration, you will have plenty of opportunity to develop the core skills that underpin effective communications strategies. While an interest in either graphic design or science writing is a plus, to get the most out of this role you will come in with a demonstrable ability to balance working on your own with an appreciation of the sensitive nature of public facing communications.

Policy Analyst (Biomedical Science)

We are seeking a talented and enthusiastic professional with a scientific background who is passionate about seeing biomedical research translated effectively into healthcare.

The role focuses on policy and technical challenges that are likely to arise through the combination of biomedical innovation and personalisation particularly where there are gaps in existing policies or regulations. You will provide scientific support to the Foundation’s work programme. A background in epidemiology and/or genomics is highly desirable but not essential. The role involves collaborative working both within and outside the organisation, including with policy makers, clinicians and academics.
