Duchenne UK is looking for a Project Manager

An exciting opportunity has come up within this ambitious charity to play a key role in helping Duchenne UK further its work to find effective treatments for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). This is a great opportunity to join our small, friendly and passionate team to play a vital role in helping us achieve our mission. Together, we will end Duchenne.

About the role

The Project Manager will have a strong project management and delivery background, ideally in the health/assistive technology sector, and report to the Head of Technology, with ultimate accountability to the Director of Research.

The role’s core responsibility will be to coordinate, manage and deliver successful outcomes on our technology development programme, of which there are currently two projects in progress. Each project seeks to develop an assistive product to deliver quality of life benefits to people living with DMD, and each has multiple technological, clinical, engineering and design, business and marketing, and end user points of input, which will all need to be well understood and managed by the Project Manager. Both projects involve close collaboration with other external organisations, including academic and industry partners.

The Project Manager will work with all external partners and the DUK team to ensure engagement on technology projects and effective delivery, across all the expected outputs and outcomes. The Project Manager will also engage the DMD patient community and other potential users of the products being developed.
