The Health Foundation is an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK. Our aim is a healthier population, supported by high quality health care that can be equitably accessed. The REAL Centre was set up to improve the quality of decisions across the health and care system. We do this by commissioning and conducting high-quality research which provides evidence on issues such as funding, service priorities and workforce.
We are seeking a highly experienced funding / grants manager who can work with us on a fixed term basis to launch a major funding call later this year, oversee the application and assessment process, and onboard the successful applicants.
The funding call, with total funding of £14 million for two REAL Centre Research Units and a linked fellowship programme. The Units will develop research programmes in our areas of interest; demand for and supply of health and social care and support the development of the fellowship programme.
This is a complex and high-profile funding programme; the ideal applicant will have experience of managing research funding on a similar scale. Outstanding communication skills and the ability to manage a wide range of both internal and external stakeholder relationships (across organisations and all levels of seniority) is essential. This is a fast-paced programme that will suit an individual looking for a new challenge in an ambitious team.
Please note that we are currently working remotely and will be moving to a hybrid working offer as COVID-19 restrictions ease.
This role is being offered on an 18-Month fixed-term contract, however secondments are welcome.
