Job Description

Reporting directly to the Chief Clinical Officer, this position would be attractive to a high-calibre, passionate and innovative Cell & Gene Therapy R&D Leader. The candidate will be interested in leading the design & execution of the world’s first significant and transformational initiative to accelerate the development, manufacture, commercialisation and ultimately, the access of advanced therapies to patients.

Company & Role
Since its inception in 2012 through the Innovate UK funding scheme, the company has already become a household name to anyone within the Cell & Gene Therapy community. To follow on from its 6 years of success from its London HQ, this newly created position will take the reins of its next critical evolutional leap, overseeing a major business critical upscaling strategy, following the creation of 3 new regional Advanced Therapy Treatment Centres (Northern Alliance, Midlands & Wales and iMatch in Manchester).

This brand new, extremely unique role will intelligently and intrinsically intertwine Science, R&D, Manufacturing, Supply Chain, Clinical Development, Commercialisation, Regulatory Affairs, National Policy, Alliances & Partnerships and broad External Stakeholder Management practices (to name but a few!).

The obvious opportunity here is the chance to spearhead what is looking set to become the blueprint for all other nations to follow in this still emerging space, as it grows from infancy to adult, thus paving the way to save more lives, more quickly.

The ideal person will be of a scientific background, highly established across all stakeholders within the Cell & Gene Therapy community and that has worked in a strategic “Head of R&D” type of position for either a Biotech or CMO within this space.

Admittedly, due to the significant importance & attractiveness of this position, the application process will be extremely competitive, therefore, if you would like to know more then please do not hesitate to make contact.
