Corporate Governance Officer

The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years. Our scientists and clinicians are working every day to make a real impact on cancer patients’ lives. We provided the first convincing evidence that DNA damage is the basic cause of cancer, and today lead the world at isolating cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted drugs for personalised cancer treatment.

The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) has charitable status and relies on support from partner organisations, charities, donors and the public. We are committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best minds in the world to join us in our mission – to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.

An opportunity has arisen for a self-motivated individual to join the Institute of Cancer Research as Corporate Governance Officer to deliver a high quality service to the ICR’s Board of Trustees and its committees.

You will gain a unique perspective on the depth and breadth of the ICR’s work to defeat cancer, and have the opportunity to help shape the delivery of our corporate governance services to support its work.

We are looking for a highly-organised and customer-focused individual with proven experience of managing the business of committees at the highest level of organisations, including minuting meetings, and of working with Chairs, Chief Executives and other members of senior management teams. A team player, with your 'can do' attitude and problem solving skills, you will have the ability to challenge our ways of working to deliver an effective and efficient service.

Interviews with shortlisted candidates are expected to take place on either Wednesday 2 May or Thursday 3 May (date to be confirmed). Please indicate when applying if you will not be available to attend for interview on either date, if invited.
