Why this role?

We are the world's largest cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research. Thanks to our supporters, we've saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. Last year, we spent more than £430 million on research and we have an ambitious aim of seeing 3 in 4 people survive cancer by 2034.

CRUK has over 3,500 employees, across a wide range of specialisms. We're proud of our talented people, and we're committed to providing best in class learning & development opportunities for everyone. Our talent management strategy is a huge priority for us. We recently became one of the first charities to pay our interns and we're committed to developing even more innovative and inclusive methods of identifying and developing our high potential people.

We're looking for someone with;

  • Knowledge of best practice learning and development, including talent management, succession planning and career development
  • Experience of establishing talent selection, development and management processes

If you're as ambitious as we are, join our collective force and enjoy an excellent career, as we save lives and add years.

At CRUK we value diversity and we're committed to creating an inclusive culture where everyone is able to be themselves and to reach their full potential. We actively encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and cultures and believe that a diverse workforce will help us to beat cancer sooner.
