  • Developing 'impact' reports, updates and other stewardship materials on key projects, translating information about our medical research into engaging content for non-specialist audiences
  • Updating their Cases for Support to ensure there is a central source of engaging content about their work

To be considered for this role you will ideally have experience of:

  • Convey complex projects to non-specialist audiences, drawing out the key information and impact of our work
  • Steward high value donors through compelling storytelling
