An exciting opportunity has come up to join our team and to play a key role in helping Duchenne UK (DUK) further its work to find effective treatments for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).

DMD is a muscle wasting disease and is the most common and severe form of genetic muscular dystrophy. There are limited treatment options and no cure. In the UK there are around 2,500 boys affected and around 300,000 worldwide.

As the UK leading DMD medical research charity, we’ve committed £17M to date to the fight against DMD. We’re funding ground-breaking scientific research to find more effective therapies for DMD and to drive transformative technologies to improve quality of life of people living with DMD.

The role’s core responsibility will be to support the management of the DUK project portfolio, through robust project administration and compliance with internal project management processes and governance.

The purpose of the role is to ensure robust tracking and progression of all portfolio projects, through project planning, monitoring, and problem solving for delivery to time, quality and budget.

The Project Coordinator will be highly collaborative and work closely with DUK colleagues in the finance and fundraising teams to ensure effective project management and delivery from project set-up through to project closure stage. You will be reporting to the Director of Research.
