Senior Project Manager (AgorIP Project)

Swansea University - School of Management

Salary: £48,327 to £55,998 per annum (pro-rata if part time) together with USS pension benefits.

This is a fixed position for 4 years.

AgorIP is an ambitious project to build linkages with IP inventors across Wales with particular emphasis on Universities and Health Boards, and to commercialise those IPs for the good of the regions. This will require substantial external efforts to build, consolidate and contractually define external relationships and the IPs relevant to the project. These external facing activities are the primary responsibility of the Project Director. The primary responsibility of the Senior Project Manager is the management and control of the resources internal to the project in order to maximise the efficiency of project delivery. In any project involving commercialisation of research, and in particular one which is partially funded using ERDF funds, the management of Conflicts of Interest (COI) will be critical and it is the duty of the AgorIP Senior Project Manager to ensure conformance with University policies and WEFO requirements in relation to Conflicts of Interest. The Senior Project Manager will work closely with REIS to manage COIs in accordance with the University’s policies.

The AgorIP Senior Project Manager is expected to lead a large project team of resources involving multiple skills from multiple sources. The role requires strong abilities and experience in the management of senior stakeholders and an ability to independently lead a large and dispersed project team with little management supervision from the senior management teams at the university
