Knowledge Transfer Partnership Manager

University of East London Professional Services - Research and Enterprise

At UEL, we pride ourselves on the real-world relevance of our courses and research and the impact we are making in our east London community and the wider world. We are an open and inclusive university that is focused on transforming the lives of our students. Our corporate plan sets out an ambitious agenda for our future success which focuses on the delivery of high-quality teaching and learning and excellence in research. UEL has almost doubled its output of world-leading research in recent years and 94 per cent of the research UEL submitted to the Research Excellence Framework 2014 was deemed to be of an at least internationally-recognised level. In the last two years, we’ve risen 79 places in the National Student Survey league table, and we achieved our highest ever student satisfaction score in 2017.

We have an excellent opportunity for you to develop our portfolio of Knowledge Exchange Partnerships, particularly in the scientific areas across computing, engineering and sustainability. Whilst the initial focus of the role is on building a portfolio of KTP’s we are keen for you to work with other members of the Research and Enterprise team to broaden and develop industrial collaboration and income generation as well as develop a wider strategic role between industry and higher education, and also to grow a dynamic and proactive team that can build on your success.

Educated to degree level, you will have an established track record in creating new collaborations and partnerships with industry, as well as winning knowledge exchange funding and developing well equipped teams. In working across university and industry sectors you should also be experienced and comfortable to communicate on all levels. 

A successful external candidate for this position would be employed by UEL Professional Services Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of UEL. Employees of UEL Professional Services Ltd work alongside UEL colleagues in delivery of UEL’s mission, and UEL Professional Services Ltd will adopt UEL HR policies and procedures in full.
