Job Description/Responsibility

  • This role will liaise closely with all of our three partner organisations (The University of Manchester, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and Cancer Research UK). It will require the post-holder to oversee and co-ordinate, as required, all aspects of communications related to the project- including managing the Communications sub-group that is part of the formal governance of the Paterson Redevelopment Project.
