University of Sheffield - Research Services

Job Reference Number: UOS017207           

Do you want a career move to a world top 100 University? Do you want to bring your professional expertise to help get leading-edge research projects off the ground?

We have an outstanding opportunity for you to build on your skills and experience of commercial legal agreements from any sector. You will provide essential professional expert support to enhance our reputation as an excellent partner for Industry, with a reputation for being easy to do business with.

Existing experience of reviewing, drafting and negotiating commercial agreements means you are ready to take a lead role. Mentoring and training will support you to convert that experience to work with research contracts. You will:

  • communicate in a straight-forward and appropriate way;
  • take the lead role in the team with Industry-facing agreements;
  • have a can-do approach, seeking continuous improvement;
  • deal with a high volume of work with constantly changing priorities.

You will strengthen the strong support network within the contracts team. You will share experience and advise colleagues, making a significant contribution to develop frameworks within which we can all work.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to best effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
