£31,000 - £36,000

We are here to reach and improve the lives of people affected by cancer. With the number of people living with cancer expected to increase to 4 million by 2030, our support will become vital to more and more people.

As Research Officer, you'll lead on scoping, designing and setting up new research projects; project manage a portfolio of research projects of varying sizes; and steer the internal and external dissemination of research findings to maximise engagement and ensure findings are well used.

In addition, you will support the management team to improve the generation and dissemination of evidence by developing a quality assurance framework for research and a strategy for supplier management.

This role requires a background in a health-related field or social research and the clear ability to quickly absorb key information and priorities in order to make an immediate contribution. This will come from your ability to involve and influence stakeholders, and your success in delivering clear, effective, timely and insightful research.

Your application should evidence a track record in the design and delivery of research involving both qualitative and quantitative approaches. It’s also important that you demonstrate success in commissioning and managing research projects from external contractors through to delivery and can demonstrate a clear understanding of quality assurance in research management.
