The role:

Your primary focus in this role will be to support the needs of the many scientists funded by Cancer Research UK. You will handle a range of contracts, but your primary focus will be: material transfer agreements, confidentiality agreements, consultancy agreements, and certain research collaboration agreements. Working in a supportive team and in an organisation committed to your personal growth, the successful candidate will have the capacity to grow the role to handle a wider range of agreements.

Who we’re looking for:

You will have a legal qualification and/or hands-on experience of drafting and negotiating relevant commercial contracts. You will also have experience of, or the aptitude for, overseeing the execution of contracts and their post-signature performance (including through the operation of a database). You will be able to set priorities, meet deadlines and work under pressure. Self-motivation and strong interpersonal skills are important qualities in this role. Whilst it’s certainly not essential, an understanding of intellectual property law and exposure to technology transfer, academic research, or the life sciences sector would be a distinct advantage.

This is a great opportunity for a person who wishes to experience fresh opportunities and to play a part in beating cancer.
