Developing our people

Developing our people

At LifeArc, we don’t just hire people, we cultivate and grow amazing talent.

We have the advantage of a strong financial position to be able to accelerate our people’s development, providing a multidisciplinary approach which provides growth opportunities.

From LifeArc-specific training programmes to access to world-leading learning platforms, you’ll have every opportunity to grow and develop.

We believe you are in the driver seat of your career progression, and we provide the vehicles to get you there.

Working at LifeArc gives my work great purpose and I highly enjoy this. It is amazing to work for a charity that tries to make the most impact for patients and pushes projects forward so treatments can go into the clinics sooner. I have learned a lot about how organisations work and, apart from science, what is involved to deliver a successful project and roll out new treatments to enhance patient benefits.”
