How to search and apply for a Cancer Research UK job
Cancer Research UK recently launched a new recruitment management system for our job vacancies. Use the links below to read the brief instructions on how best to use this new system.
If you are experiencing technical difficulties submitting an application that are not covered in the instructions below, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are three ways to search for a job:
- Basic Search,
- Advanced Search, and
- All Jobs.
If you have already created a personal profile (see below for details), you can also use the Jobs Matching My Profile function.
When using Basic Search you can use a job number or a keyword. You can also specify your search by filling in Job Field or Location.
If you want to add more search criteria, click on the Advanced Search tab. Here you can add parameters such as posting date, job level, job type and education level to your search.
To see all available job openings at Cancer Research UK, click on the All Jobs tab. The jobs will be presented in a list and can be sorted according to criteria such as posting date and location.
Click on Clear if you want to remove previous search criteria and start a new search.
To apply for a role on our website, or to sign up for job alerts you'll need to create a profile.
This is a simple process where you'll be asked to provide a copy of your CV, some contact details and your job preferences.
By creating a profile, you will become active in the Cancer Research UK candidate pool which we can use to search for candidates. You can choose to be notified if there are new job postings that match your profile.
You can apply for a job by clicking on the Apply Online link at the bottom of each job posting. You need to create a profile before you can submit an application (see above).
Some vacancies may require you to answer several additional questions before you can submit your application. You can edit and view a summary of your profile before sending the application.
Click on Submit at the bottom of the page to apply for the job. To view all your submissions click on the My Jobpage tab.
