The Crick is a world-leading centre of biomedical research and innovation. Dedicated to research excellence, the Crick has the scale, vision and expertise to tackle the most challenging scientific questions that underpin our understanding of human health and disease.
Conducting world-class biomedical research safely, sustainably and successfully in central London is a significant undertaking. The scale and complexity of the science requires a highly professional and effective Health & Safety team. This senior role provides a great opportunity for someone to use their solid understanding of Health & Safety to lead a team providing the framework and assurance mechanisms that are practical and ensure the Institute remains legally compliant, meets its regulatory duties and internal policy objectives. The role is critical to enabling achievement of the strategy objective ‘We will be audit and inspection ready at all times.’
The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.
An independent organisation, its founding partners are the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK, Wellcome, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King’s College London.
The Crick was formed in 2015, and in 2016 it moved into a new state-of-the-art building in central London which brings together 1500 scientists and support staff working collaboratively across disciplines, making it the biggest biomedical research facility under in one building in Europe.
The Francis Crick Institute will be world-class with a strong national role. Its distinctive vision for excellence includes commitments to collaboration; developing emerging talent and exporting it the rest of the UK; public engagement; and helping turn discoveries into treatments as quickly as possible to improve lives and strengthen the economy.
