BTA (Bruce Tait Associates) are delighted to be working with Worldwide Cancer Research in their search for a Research Funding Administrator.

Imagine a world where no life is cut short by cancer. Imagine being part of the team that works tirelessly to make that vision a reality.

Worldwide Cancer Research is a small charity with immense ambition - to see a day where no life is cut short by cancer. To bring that day closer the charity is changing, and growing.

Worldwide Cancer Research funds innovative cancer research all over the world, finding the best projects that sit right at the beginning of the research journey. The charity kick-starts the life-saving advances of the future by sowing the seeds of new discoveries today, funding brand new ideas and supporting researchers who ask big, challenging, new questions about how cancer works and how we can control it.

Worldwide Cancer Research takes a global approach to solving a local problem because cancer affects people in your city, your street, your family - but the answers could be found anywhere in the world…

To help bring forward the day that no life is cut short by cancer, the charity is looking for a Research Funding Administrator.

As Research Funding Administrator you will be part of the team responsible for the administration of the multi-million pound response mode funding programme for basic and translational cancer research.

Reporting to the Research Funding Manager, you will assist with the processing of funding applications, their review by external experts and the charity’s Scientific Advisory Committee, and the administration and financial management of the resulting awards.

Applications are invited from candidates who have experience of administration in busy multi-tasking environments.

You will be an excellent communicator, advanced in MS Excel with the ability to prioritise your own workload and work autonomously. You will be excited about joining this dynamic charity, looking forward to becoming a part of Team Worldwide and have a real passion for the charity’s vision, mission and strategy.

We are all affected by cancer, wherever we live in the world, and it will take a worldwide movement to beat it.



This search is being conducted exclusively on behalf of Worldwide Cancer Research by recruitment partner BTA.
