The Human Tissue Authority is the national independent regulator for organisations that remove, store and use human tissue for research, medical treatment, post-mortem examination, teaching and display in public. We also assess applications for organ and bone marrow donation from living people.

As our Transplant Manager, you will be responsible for the operational management of the HTA’s assessment process for living organ and bone marrow donation across the UK.

Exceptional communication and influencing skills will be essential, as you will be responsible for ensuring you and your team provide the highest quality advice and guidance to the public, professionals as well as internal and external stakeholders including the Department of Health and Social Care.
