Fixed-term until 31 March 2023, 1-2 days per week
As Commercial Director you will be responsible for developing and commercialising cancer data science projects leveraging the assets and expertise within the DATA-CAN partnership.
Salary: £110,000 pro-rata

The role

As Commercial Director you will be responsible for developing and commercialising cancer data science projects leveraging the assets and expertise within the DATA-CAN partnership. You will lead the design and delivery of DATA-CAN’s commercial strategy, overseeing the appropriate delivery of current project portfolio, and identify opportunities for future collaborations and services.

Your key stakeholders are: the patients whose data will be used in the science and who will benefit from any improvement in care, the NHS hospitals that collect and manage the data, the NHS and academic data scientists who prepare and analyse the data, the companies that design, commission and fund the science, and the non-commercial researchers in academia and health service management who benefit from the insights and the improved datasets. The successful candidate will build and maintain effective relationships across these stakeholders and the relevant national influencers and policymakers.

DATA-CAN

Health data collected by the NHS and other organisations is not always quick and easy for researchers to find, access and analyse. DATA-CAN is a UK-wide partnership that aims to unlock the power of health data to improve cancer care. We are working in partnership with patients and the public to make this high-quality health data more accessible for cancer researchers, clinicians and other health professionals. This will make it easier to conduct research for new treatments, identify opportunities for earlier diagnosis, and make improvements in care for people affected by cancer.

DATA-CAN provides a range of services to commercial researchers, including the delivery of specialist health data science projects which generate new insights into the treatment and outcomes of cancer patients.
