Do get in touch with us if you have the experience, we will send you the job description to give you a better picture of where they are as an organisation and the kind of person they are looking for as they build their team.

Recently the charity was re-branded and whilst it had a superb track record in funding medical research, it wasn't well known outside of medical circles. They re-branded their mission and they became more visible and accessible for those who need them.

Before the re-brand they had just over 30,000 visitors to their website. Today, they average 100,000 visitors per month to the website, over a million a year.
