Ruth Hurley

Since graduating from Durham University, I have gained experience in multiple sectors and organisations.

I am passionate about working in a cause driven organisation and have developed my career at Cancer Research UK (CRUK), the UK’s largest charity.

I am currently the Technology Engagement Lead at CRUK. My role is to champion and drive forward the implementation of CRUK’s technology strategy and make the value technology can bring to the whole organisation clear to all. I am responsible for owning and iterating the technology operating model ensuring it meets strategic objectives.

I was a CRUK Technology Business Partner for 2 years, where I was a critical partner for diverse business teams, facilitating and prioritising strategic outcomes to enable optimal use of technology resources.

Prior to these roles, I worked in several relationship-based roles at CRUK, responsible for translating new opportunities into business processes. I have also held several event management roles, organising events ranging from medical training sessions to international business to business events.
