Job Details

Harris Hill are delighted to be partnering with a fantastic health charity in their search for a Research Engagement Lead.

Location: Camden, North London. This role gives you the opportunity to work from home three days a week.

Salary: £40,000

 As a relatively small and agile organisation, they punch above their weight and have big ambitions.

As Research Engagement Lead you will lead on medical research and patient research engagement for the Society.

This is a new role and demonstrates the charity’s commitment to growing their support in research. There is considerable scope for the postholder to shape the way the Society supports research in the future. They have an ambitious strategy, including establishing a research grant programme and creating an ‘Experts by Experience’ patient panel to ensure research engagement drives the change people with this condition want most. The postholder provides the principal channel of communication and advice between the charity and the research community.

The successful candidate will have experience of research grant administration and a background working with patients and supporting the involvement of patients and carers in research. You must be confident communicating complex science to a broad spectrum of people (ranging from researchers to the general public), be able to plan, budget and monitor grant award expenditure and be comfortable taking decisions and responsibility.

If you have strong research experience (in a research environment in academia, the charitable sector, or similar), enjoy working in a small  team and are proactive, organised, rigorous and like variety, then please do get in touch!
