Purpose of the post

Reporting to the Head of Communications, this is a pivotal new role that will be integral to demonstrating the value of health data research. You will work hand in hand with the HDR UK research community – many of them key to the scientific response to COVID – to tell the compelling story of data in health research. You will also work with colleagues across HDR UK programmes to pull together the wider narrative of our research impact.

You will deliver the communications strategy for research and science, working with colleagues to manage a range of tools and channels, including our website, social media, email, publications, PR and events, to reach audiences across academia, NHS, industry, charities; as well as patients and the public.

This is a unique and exciting opportunity for an experienced science communications professional to lead and deliver communications on cutting-edge research using health data that are making a tangible difference to people’s lives.

We are seeking an individual with a proven track record in research communications who has successfully worked on complex, scientific projects with multiple partners. The successful candidate will share our values, have strong influencing and collaboration skills and be comfortable with working at pace, moving quickly to prioritise resources where needed.

The role holder will have a background in science or research communications with the ability to communicate complex information in innovative ways that engage with the varied audiences we work with.
