Job Description

Be a part of an energetic and vibrant team who are driven by the desire to improve the lives of people living with kidney disease. Our vision is the day when everyone lives free from kidney disease.

We have introduced a programmatic way of working to drive research, development and policy activities to bring meaningful patient benefit in each of our strategic priorities. Our plans are brave and ambitious and to help us succeed, we are building a programmes team who will champion key areas of focus including:

  • Dialysis and MedTech
  • Diabetic Kidney Disease
  • Heart and circulatory complications of kidney disease

As part of this investment, we are seeking two programme managers who will play a pivotal role in developing, managing and communicating their programme area. They will work with key senior stakeholders to define the requirements of each programme, understanding the funding landscape and driving productive partnerships to deliver impact.

These roles are highly interactive. Within the charity, as the experts in their area of focus, the programme managers will support our fundraising, communication, supporter care and business development teams to progress revenue-generating and partnership opportunities. Externally, they will engage with the clinical and laboratory research community including our funded researchers, key stakeholders in our clinical research networks, bioindustry contacts and government funders.

Programme manager requirements:

Reporting to the head of programmes, the successful applicants will have a background in biological or health sciences as well as the desire and ability to get fully up to speed in a broad subject area, superb organisation and relationship-building skills, and the tenacity and drive to develop and progress productive collaborations.

We are committed to providing equal opportunities for everyone and encourage applications from all sections of the community.

If you are interested in these positions, please complete the online application form and submit your CV, together with a supporting statement, outlining why you are interested and how you feel you meet the requirements.

About us:

Kidney Research UK are the leading charity dedicated to kidney research in the UK. Our vision is the day when everyone lives free from kidney disease.

We fund research into all aspects of kidney disease - from understanding the condition, to how we can prevent and treat it. We want to discover better, kinder treatments.

Research has given us life-saving kidney transplants, dialysis machines that filter the blood when the kidneys fail, and drugs to keep us going. But these treatments come at a cost. They can be gruelling, confining, relentless. A transplant is not a cure, they rarely last a lifetime.

Kidney disease still affects three million people in the UK. And one million of those don’t know they are at risk. That’s three million people who are someone’s parents, grandparents, children, friends.

And kidney failure is rising, as are the factors contributing to it, such as diabetes and obesity.

That’s why our work is more essential than ever.

Research is what we do. It is the only way to discover future preventions, treatments and cures. It is vital to keep our loved ones safe. Your support is crucial to make this happen.

We’re here to be heard, to make a difference, to change the future. Kidney disease ends here.
