GDPR Compliance Officer
Kidney Research UK is a charity working to cure kidney disease. It is still out there, a silent killer, blighting the lives of more than two million patients, with a further million undiagnosed. We are the largest charitable funder supporting renal research in the UK today. For decades the research we enable has been saving lives, but people continue to suffer, and we want to do so much more to help.
Through targeted research, the collation and sharing of health information and strategic planning we have been shaping and facilitating advances in renal research since 1961, collaborating with other charities and funders to deliver life-changing care to all those affected.
With the incidences of obesity, heart disease and high blood pressure (all triggers for kidney disease) on the increase due to our changing life-styles, our work is more essential than ever, and we need good, passionate and caring people to help get us to a cure, faster.
