The Royal Marsden Hospital together with its academic partner The Institute of Cancer Research form the only specialist cancer NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), receiving £43m over five years to support translational clinical research into cancer diagnosis and treatment. The joint institution demonstrates breadth and depth in experimental cancer research, and provides a highly active and effective clinical research environment, with a critical mass of experienced internationally renowned clinicians and biomedical scientists engaged in leading-edge translational research.

The BRC is seeking an experienced Training and Education Manager to lead on the continuous development of the BRC Training and Education strategy ensuring that there is a collaborative approach to the evolving needs for the training and development of three staff groups: clinical academics, health professionals (nurse / AHP researchers) and the wider research support workforce. In alignment with the current BRC training and capacity building strategy, the post-holder will develop and manage a suite of programmes designed to support clinical and non-clinical researchers to develop their careers and coordinate the delivery of training for clinical research workforce. The post-holder will provide overall direction for the Clinical R&D Administrator (Training and PPI/E).

This position is full-time, funded until 31st March 2022 in the first instance with the possibility of extension, primarily based in the BRC office in Sutton with regular travel to the Chelsea.
