The British Pharmacological Society has, at its heart, the development and promotion of pharmacology and of those who are training and working in the field. With over 3,500 members from over 60 countries around the world, we are a truly international organization.
We cover the whole spectrum of pharmacology, including laboratory, clinical, and toxicological aspects and support our members at work in academia, industry and the health service through our membership, conferences, education and policy initiatives, publications and grants.
The BPS employs 13 full time members of staff at our offices at Angel Gate in London. Our staff come from a mixture of third sector, commercial, publishing, scientific, financial and media backgrounds and deliver a range of initiatives, many of which are covered on this website, on behalf of the Society.
We offer excellent working conditions with a number of benefits including generous paid annual leave, bonus scheme, interest free season ticket loans, flexible working and a career averaged pension scheme.
We are looking to recruit a Head of Innovation to carry out a review of our existing products and services, re-launch and re-develop those that have potential to grow and to assess and test the feasibility of launching new services.

You’ll be comfortable with the latest technology, in deriving income from both commercial and non profit sources, able to put together market tested business plans and win approval and funding for them, and have a strong track record of success in these areas.
