LifeArc?is a medical research charity with a?25-year?legacy of helping scientists and organisations turn their research into treatments and diagnostics for?patients.??
We have recently set out on a new journey as an independent charity and we have an exciting ten-year vision?to transform the way diseases are identified and treated. This means building on our core activities of science, advice and funding, to take advantage of new opportunities and developments in our industry.
An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Learning and Development team. We want you to play a leading role in organising and following up on our learning activities. You will contribute to the ongoing shaping of the Learning and Development offering, researching best practice in areas like mentoring and apprenticeships; proposing potential new L&D activities and initiatives and helping to create an effective learning environment.

You will be as comfortable with Microsoft Office as you are with people. Organised and with a keen eye for detail, you will also be a flexible team member with an ability to multi-task. Above all you will be a self-starter, eager to learn and develop your own skills.
You will be primarily responsible for co-ordinating the delivery of our courses, programmes and events, ensuring our attendees have the materials and the environment to enjoy a positive learning experience. The role is a 12-month fixed term contract based in our recently refurbished London offices, with occasional travel to our Stevenage site.
