We are a leading charity and the UK’s expert voice for children with cancer and we have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Research Administrator to join our Research team.
We are looking for a dynamic, self-motivated, and organised individual who can work well as part of a small team, and independently too. The post holder will be required to build strong relationships with our researchers and peer reviewers, which means excellent inter-personal and communication skills are required.
Each week in the UK and Ireland, more than 30 children are diagnosed with cancer. Our network of dedicated professional members work together in treatment, care and research to help shape a future where all children with cancer survive and live happy, healthy and independent lives.
We fund and support innovative world-class research and collaborate, both nationally and internationally, to drive forward improvements in childhood cancer. Our award-winning information resources help lessen the anxiety, stress and loneliness commonly felt by families, giving support throughout the cancer journey.
Main purpose of the role
The post-holder will be responsible for providing a comprehensive administrative service to our medical research funding operation and supporting the Research Manager to deliver on the aims and objectives for our growing research function.
This role is offered as home working during COVID restrictions. As restrictions are lifted, we anticipate moving towards a flexible working pattern, with a mix of home working and office working from our offices in Leicester city centre.
