Job Details

Building on the successes of our current CEO who is moving on to pastures new, we are now seeking a new Chief Executive to take the charity on the next stage of its journey. We need an inspirational leader and figurehead who will help raise the organisation’s profile, be credible with key stakeholders and donors, and ensure strong performance from the wider Antibiotic Research UK team.

A strategic thinker, you will possess good commercial acumen and business sense.  You may have some experience in medical research and / or the charity sector, but more important is a clear alignment to our values. You will be driven by the desire to work collaboratively to overcome the threat of antibiotic resistance by leading a unique virtual organisation that plays a vital role in supporting the development of effective treatments, educating the public and professionals about antibiotic resistance, and improving the quality of life for patients with antibiotic-resistant infections.   

Please take a look at the Supporting document for full details including: Introduction, Key Responsibilities, Person Specification and How to Apply.





A group of leading UK university and company scientists and clinicians, all with an interest in antibiotic resistance, had been meeting informally on a regular basis to establish what can be done to kick start antibiotic drug development.

Drawn from some of the country’s leading universities, the network known as Antibiotic Discovery UK founded and chaired by Professor Anthony Coates, Professor of Medical Microbiology, St Georges, University of London agreed following a proposal from Professor Colin Garner during a meeting early in 2014 that a new charity should be created to tackle the antibiotic resistance challenge. The charity’s name was decided by competition and a student at the University of Oxford won the prize for the best name ‘Antibiotic Research UK’ (ANTRUK). The Charity was registered with the Charity Commission in July 2014 (registered charity no 1157884) and the first AGM was held on Monday 18 August 2014 at the Royal York Hotel, York.
