Are you a highly motivated individual who would like to help shape the future of how we deliver experimental cancer research in the UK?

The Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre (ECMC) Network is a joint initiative between Cancer Research UK and the devolved health departments for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. There are currently 18 ECMCs across the UK, and one of the key objectives for the next four years is to build the individual centres into a fully functioning network. Now we need a Communications Project Manager to play an important role in helping us to deliver against these objectives. This will include:

• Developing an integrated marketing and communications plan
• Shaping key messages about ECMCs for both internal and external audiences
• Writing and editing new communications materials
• Building strong effective relationships with key stakeholders, including senior members of the research community

You will work as an integral member of a dedicated project delivery team, within the Strategy and Research Funding directorate at Cancer Research UK. There will also be opportunities to liaise with communications colleagues across the charity.

To take on this exciting challenge, you’ll have:

• Excellent written and verbal communication and influencing skills, with a proven track record of engaging with diverse audiences and developing partnerships across multiple organisations
• Excellent project management skills and the ability to deliver communications work packages on time and budget
• Demonstrable experience of forging strong relationships with stakeholders, particularly those in the Research and Development environment, and act as a key point of contact
• Experience of planning publications or medical writing within an agency environment or within a pharmaceutical/biotechnology company (highly desirable)

Our relentless drive towards beating cancer means that we are constantly trying new avenues, which means you will be innovative and open-minded to new ways of working. You’ll also need the tenacity to drive and facilitate projects to realise their desired outcomes to time and quality.
If you’re as ambitious as we are, join our collective force and enjoy an excellent career, as we work together save lives and add years

Admin note: Given that almost all of the jobs posted here fall within ‘science communication’ I don’t always use that as a tag for the posts as it’s largely redundant. However other users of WordPress (which hosts ScicommJobs) do use the term and you can see other blogs and blog posts that are tagged with ‘science communication’ here.
