If you’re looking to put your excellent organisational and problem-solving skills towards advancing experimental medicine, then join our small and friendly team, where you will help manage and grow multi-million-pound research initiatives alongside experienced professionals from diverse backgrounds. 

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Imperial Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is a 5-year clinical research programme award from the Department of Health and Social Care, which was awarded in 2017 to support translation of scientific discoveries from Imperial College London into the clinic for patient benefit, through the five hospitals within Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (ICHT). 

The BRC Research Programmes Officer is a multi-faceted research support role that will routinely combine elements of project management, stakeholder management, quantitative and qualitative reporting, marketing and content writing. You will also assist the BRC senior leadership team in shaping the strategic direction of our future research programmes.

In turn, you will learn about various research topics and how innovations from Imperial College are translated into ICHT and wider NHS practice. You will have an opportunity to take ownership of certain initiatives and have an input into operational management of the BRC Office.

Additionally, you will play an integral part in facilitating BRC strategy, which will require careful administrative planning and preparation of committee papers.
