The Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult was established in 2012 as a centre of excellence in innovation, with the core purpose of building a world-leading cell and gene therapy industry in the UK. Supported by Innovate UK and as part of a network of Catapults, our mission is to drive the growth of the cell and gene therapy industry by accelerating the translation of early stage research into commercially viable therapies.

The Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult’s vision is for the UK to be a global leader in the development, delivery and commercialisation of cell and gene therapy, and a place where businesses can start, and confidently grow. The Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult works with partners to address the technical and commercial challenges associated with the development of these exciting, cutting edge treatments.

We have developed a unique range of assets including state of the art development facilities in central London and our large scale manufacturing centre in Stevenage. With over 200 experts spanning, scale up, manufacturing and analytical technologies, clinical trials, regulatory, along with health economics and market access we are executing multiple projects with academia and industry to grow an advanced therapy industry.

The Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult is recognised globally as a leader in its field and after eight years the founding Chief Executive Officer will be retiring in April 2020. We are looking for a new Chief Executive Officer who can build on this success and continue with this remarkable growth story. You should have deep life science industry experience and inspire confidence from an array of stakeholders in the activities of this highly visible and fast paced organization. You will be passionate about the impact that cell and gene therapies can have on patients’ lives and understand the challenges of developing an industry that can deliver globally. You will be a proven leader, negotiator, relationship builder and strategic thinker with a track record of delivering financial success through partnerships and collaborative engagements. You will lead our organisation as we continue to form collaborations, influence industry, drive adoption in the NHS and global healthcare systems, whilst delivering tangible impact to the UK economy.

If you think that you can match our ambition and believe that you can significantly contribute to the further growth of our organisation and the industry, then please write in the first instance to Mrs Catrin Gaston-Penny, Head of Human Resources, with a current Curriculum Vitae and covering letter explaining what experience you can bring to the role on
