Are you a highly organised and experienced administrator who enjoys working with a wide range of people? Do you have experience of supporting academic research projects and/or working across health and care? Would you like to join our growing team supporting the development and delivery of cutting-edge innovation in health and care?

The Leeds Centre for Personalised Medicine and Health accelerates the research, evaluation and adoption of new treatments and technologies that move away from a ‘one size fits all’ approach. We aim to improve health in a healthy economy, underpinned by the best research and education. We are committed to driving forward innovative approaches that support the whole person, and shift the focus from one of disease, to one of health.

We are going through an exciting period of growth and change. As part of the Leeds Academic Health Partnership, and supported by the University of Leeds and Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network, we are accelerating our ambition to transform the health, wealth and wellbeing of our citizens.

Through the development of our ‘precision prevention’ flagship projects, focussed on the prevention of frailty and the early diagnosis of cancer, we are driving forward a targeted strategy that will improve health and care, generate inclusive economic growth and demonstrate academic excellence and impact.

To support our growth, we are seeking an experienced Centre Coordinator to support our operational and project activity. Working to the Head of Operations, you will coordinate and support all aspects of our day-to-day business as well provide support for the Centre’s strategic research projects.

You will have experience in a senior administrative position, ideally within a research or health setting. Excellent organisational skills with the ability to work across multiple organisations and to tight deadlines is essential, as is meticulous attention to detail. You will have advanced IT skills, with a strong working knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. You must be highly numerate, and have a track record of delivering high-quality work in a fast-paced environment.
