Wellcome is developing a new organisational structure

Wellcome has launched a new strategy to solve the urgent health challenges facing everyone. We’re supporting discovery research into life, health and wellbeing, and we’re taking on three worldwide health challenges: mental health, global heating and infectious diseases.

We’re reshaping the organisation around our new goals and developing a new structure at Wellcome. From January 2021, our Executive Leadership Team and Senior Leadership Team move into new roles to lead the teams who will deliver our strategy. As part of this, we’re recruiting a new Director of Research Programmes who will bring together teams dedicated to these health challenges and discovery research.

We are still working through the organisation design and expect to have this completed later in 2021.
