Action Medical Research is an ambitious charity aiming to grow and deliver still more medical research to help children. With roots in the development of the first UK polio vaccines, the charity has contributed to some amazing medical breakthroughs, like developing ultrasound in pregnancy, the rubella vaccine and cooling therapy for newborn babies.
But medical research for children is underfunded and we urgently need to develop more new treatments and cures. That’s why we need you to help in our fight for little lives.

The role is home based within the area and you will need to be able to work flexible hours, including evenings and weekends. A full UK driving licence is essential.
Please email your CV together with a covering letter detailing how you meet the person specification to Stephanie Stevens firstname.lastname@example.org Closing date for applications is 9am on Friday 9 March 2018.
