We are also a major funder of applied health research in low and middle income countries.

What is the role?

You will also have responsibility and contribute to the local delivery of the NIHR IG ambitions. This role will include a variety of tasks including:

  • Leading on the delivery of effective and efficient IG activities

  • Proven project and people management skills
  • Strong organisation and prioritisation skills to work to multiple-deadlines
  • Ability to plan and manage major new projects

How do we look after you?
