The charity is at a transformative stage of growth and development and they are increasing their investment in the research community.

Working as the Research Strategy and Insights Manager you will take responsibility for gathering and assimilating the information, perspectives, and insights from across the research community, research funding sector, and charity to define how the charity supports researchers to improve survival for people with pancreatic cancer.

As the Research Strategy and Insights Manager you will also work to understand the impact of the charity’s work, using these insights to inform the work of the research team and wider charity.

  • Develop processes, governance structures, and mechanisms to routinely and comprehensively engage and consult the research community in key strategic areas
  • Utilise this intelligence to define new support and investment strategies to overcome critical challenges in these areas
  • Develop new ways to continuously analyse and understand research inputs, outputs, and impacts

  • Excellent organisational and project management skills, with good time-management
  • Able to manage a busy and varied workload, whilst maintaining attention to detail, and meeting deadlines



It’s unacceptable that more than half of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer die within 3 months. Survival rates have improved enormously for most cancers, yet for pancreatic cancer, this is not the case. And, with treatment and care affected by the pandemic, the situation has only got worse.

The organisation is a national charity dedicated to taking on this injustice using every possible means. They’re supporting people with pancreatic cancer now, campaigning, and funding vital research to transform the future. 



The charity is an inclusive employer, committed and looking for people who can demonstrate dedication to their cause and values.

They celebrate all aspects of diversity and inclusion and believe in appointing the right person for the role and, that there should be no barriers to work and employment. They are aiming to be an organisation whose workforce broadly reflects society and creates a positive environment for everyone to flourish, therefore they particularly welcome applications from candidates who consider themselves to be in a diverse minority. 

The charity offer a supportive place to work with helpful and friendly staff who report a high level of job satisfaction. They are currently working remotely due to Covid-19 restrictions, but their main office is based in London on the river with views towards Westminster. They offer flexible working and they envisage once Covid restrictions are lifted, this role will be a blend of working from home and working in the office.



Candidates will be required to submit their CV and complete an Application Form. Once you’ve applied via this job board, please keep an eye out for our email, which will include the Application Form to complete and return.

By submitting your job application to us you are hereby giving us your express consent to submit your details to our Client for this purpose.
