About us:

It’s unacceptable that more than half of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer die within 3 months. Survival rates have improved enormously for most cancers, yet for pancreatic cancer, this is not the case. And, with treatment and care affected by the pandemic, the situation has only got worse.

Pancreatic Cancer UK is a national charity dedicated to taking on this injustice using every possible means. We’re supporting people with pancreatic cancer now, campaigning, and funding vital research to transform the future. 

About the role:

We are at a transformative stage of growth and development and we are increasing our investment in the research community. We have bold ambitions therefore, we are building our research capacity and resource with new posts and new structures. This will enable us to not just increase our research investment but to do it in the areas most needed for researchers to effectively drive changes in survival.

In this newly created role, you will take responsibility for the development, delivery and monitoring of Pancreatic Cancer UK’s rapidly growing research activities. Key to this role will be working to ensure that our grants schemes are dynamic, innovative and delivered to the highest possible quality and objectivity, addressing key needs of the research and patient community.

You will also contribute significantly to the strategic thinking, community engagement and leadership within the Research Team, across the charity and in the research community. 

Some of the main responsibilities include:

  • Developing and delivering strategic research initiatives (with direct support from Research)
  • Overseeing the administration of grants to enable the charity to be fully accountable for its research spend.
  • Supporting in analysing, interpreting and communicating the impact of our research activities and investment
  • Coordinate and input to the development of new strategic funding schemes alongside planned response-mode funding and other research activities

About you:

  • You will have an in-depth ability and strong track record of grant award and management processes, including running grant rounds, working with large external committees and monitoring grants.
  • Proven ability in working well with a wide variety of stakeholders, including all levels of seniority within academia and other research
  • Ability to conduct meetings, present to external audiences, and to represent the organisation at seminars, workshops and be the subject matter expert both internally and externally
  • Strong team working skills; able to understand and balance the priorities of others in relation to their own work
  • Excellent organisational, project management and time-management skills.
