About our client:
They want to free lives from the restrictions, fear, anxiety and life limiting nature of kidney disease. A silent killer, it blights the lives of more than two million patients, and the charity estimate a further million people have the condition but are not yet diagnosed. Our client is the largest dedicated funder supporting kidney research in the UK today. For decades the research the charity enables has been saving lives, but there is so much more to do.
They have been shaping and facilitating advances in kidney disease research since 1961, collaborating with other charities and funders to deliver life-changing care to all those affected by kidney disease.
With the incidences of obesity, heart disease and high blood pressure (all triggers for kidney disease) rising due to our changing lifestyles, their work is more essential than ever, and they need talented, passionate and caring people to help change outcomes for people living with, affected by and at risk of kidney disease sooner.
