Genomics England successfully led the world-leading 100,000 Genomes Project, which compared and analysed individuals’ genetic codes to help diagnose, treat and prevent illness.
We're now accelerating our impact, working with the NHS to further develop and embed genomic healthcare and research in Britain. Our next chapter involves working with patients, doctors, scientists, government and industry to improve genomic testing, and help researchers access the health data and technology they need to make new medical discoveries and create more effective, targeted medicines for everybody.
Building on the success of the “moonshot” 100,000 Genomes Project, Genomics England is now bringing the benefits of genomic medicine to everyone in England, the UK and beyond, in ongoing partnership with the NHS.
We’re at the start of an incredibly exciting new chapter as we begin the development of a new operating model for genomics in cancer, to enhance cancer research and provide maximal patient benefit and support the evolution of the Genomic Medicine Service through improved analytics, interpretations and decision support.
In order to support this, we're seeking a Delivery Manager to join the programme, to facilitate the smooth delivery of many of the programme areas, as well as set up a process to ingest, de-identify, curate, QC and move Data into our Research Environments.

You'll already understand imaging and AI tools and how we utilise them for healthcare data and will have exposure to NHS IT systems and experience in working with NHS data, in particular LIMS and PACS systems.
An educational background in Life Sciences is desirable, but equivalent experience is acceptable
