We’re game changers. Here at CRUK, we aim to save more lives by preventing, controlling and curing cancer. Every step we make towards beating cancer relies on every pound, every hour and every person, and our people work relentlessly every day towards this goal. This is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious individual with a recognised professional qualification in finance or internal audit to complement our Risk and Assurance team. You may, for example, have already worked in internal audit and are looking to build on your experience in a diverse and challenging environment.


Minimum Criteria:

  • Some experience within a similar role or within an audit environment
  • Well-developed interpersonal skills, with the ability to establish and retain effective relationships at all levels.
  • Excellent analytical and numerical skills in order to bring structure to problems and present data in a clear and concise manner.
  • Strong influencing and negotiating skills.
  • Good initiative and self-motivation.


If you can do all this and more, you'll enjoy working for CRUK as we bring forward the days when all cancers are cured.
