Job description

Research is at the heart of our charitable objectives at Sarcoma UK. As we look to launch our new Research Strategy in 2021, we are seeking to recruit a new Research Officer to provide support to our expanding research programme.

The Research Officer role involves a varied workload, and brings the opportunity to work with autonomy and develop news skills within a dynamic team. You will work on a broad range of projects, including taking the lead on our grants management processes, with the support of the Director of Research, Policy and Support. The role will also involve working collaboratively with other departments across the organisation to develop engaging research related content for digital and print, as well as monitoring the outputs and impact of our research funding.

To date, Sarcoma UK has funded 56 research projects, representing an investment of over £3.5 million. We have developed our research grants management programme significantly in the last few years and are now looking to expand our programme and widen our patient involvement and collaborative partnerships work.

This is an ideal role for someone with a scientific background and an active interest in research management, and it offers the opportunity to make a real impact for people affected by sarcoma and their families.

Salary: £28,500 p.a.  

Hours: Full-time (37.5 hours per week)

Location: Home and office based - Old Street, London N1 (The proportion worked at home will depend on coronavirus restrictions in place but it is expected that at least 2 days per week will permanently be based at home)

Reports to: Director of Research, Policy and Support

Benefits:   Up to 5% matched contribution to Sarcoma UK pension scheme; interest-free season ticket and bicycle loan. 25 days’ holiday entitlement per annum plus bank holidays and the working days between Christmas and New Year when the office is shut.
