About the role
This is a new role to strengthen both communications and engagement with our member charities and the wider community. You will be involved in writing content, delivering an e-newsletter and planning, managing and marketing events such as workshops, seminars, awards and conferences.
Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are essential. You will be educated to degree level with a flair for writing and great communications. You will need to be self-disciplined and adaptable with the ability to thrive in a busy environment with lots of challenges. Experience and understanding of the role of medical research charities and the biomedical research environment in the UK are desirable, but not essential. A demonstrable interest in biomedical research and/or the issues facing charities, will, however, be very important.
This job may suit someone with a PhD or postgraduate science communication qualification, looking to rapidly develop their skills and experience in communications, events and project management, but such qualifications are not essential.
AMRC is the national membership organisation of leading medical and health research charities. Our vision is charities delivering high-quality research to improve health and wellbeing for all.
Our strategy is to support members to meet their charitable objectives; to connect members to encourage collaboration and to share learning; and to influence the regulatory, policy and research environments.
