Innovation is more important to us than ever before. In an increasingly competitive market we need to innovate in our fundraising to bring forward the day that all cancers are cured. Our Innovation team plays a vital role in the creation of new fundraising models.

Every 6 months the Innovation Development team take a selection of new ideas to our governance board who select which should be trialled and launched. As a result of this, we put projects to pilot or launch via the Delivery team.

The ideas to launch will be new, unproven and often unprecedented, so the role require a good mix of project management, stakeholder engagement and delivery skills, with the ability to analyse, be flexible and innovative.

We’re looking for a creative and organised Innovation Delivery Manager to...

  • Support the Senior Innovation Delivery Manager in working up one of these ideas to be ready to launch by the business within 6 months
  • Move on to support the Senior Innovation Delivery Manager on the new pilots or launches coming through the pipeline
  • Help co-ordinate work across the business, working with a variety of teams to deliver the best solution possible
  • Work with Innovation Marketing on the marketing strategy and implementation
  • Join the world’s largest charity dedicated to beating cancer

Beating cancer is a real challenge. Here at Cancer Research UK we have 3,500 talented people who are passionate about achieving this vision and thrive in our complex, diverse and dynamic environment. Now we need a Senior Innovation Delivery Manager to be responsible for all aspects of project delivery, which could include everything from working with legal on contracts to working with social media to deliver the supporter engagement strategy, from designing a web experience to recruiting volunteers. Although largely an autonomous role, you’ll work closely with Innovation Marketing plus other functions as specifically required by that project.

We can’t achieve our goals without maximising revenues so we need to ensure we continually evaluate and question our projects’ progress and suggest solutions and improvements.

You can help us save millions of lives through...

  • Your excellent project management skills
  • A solution driven attitude
  • Your analytical approach and constant evaluation of progress
  • Your passion, exceptional communication skills and ability to excite and engage colleagues, suppliers and supporters in the vision of what the project will deliver.
