Enterprise and Promotions Manager

University College London - UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction

The UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction (IRDR) is a cross-UCL Institute, launched as a Provost’s strategic development in 2010, which aims to lead research, knowledge exchange, enterprise and advanced teaching in the area of risk and disaster reduction (RDR). The Institute is hosted in the Faculty of Mathematics and Physical Sciences, but operates across all UCL’s faculties, spanning earth and space sciences, statistics, engineering, geography and global health. Budding off from the IRDR, we launched the Humanitarian Institute in 2016, aiming to mobilise UCL’s research, expertise, teaching and the student body to impact global humanitarian challenges and to promote education for global citizenship and the connected curriculum at UCL. The IRDR has 3 professional services staff, 8 academic staff, 9 research staff, 12 visiting staff, and runs four masters programmes, an MRes and three MSc with about 35 students, and has a research student population of over 25.

We are seeking to appoint an Enterprise and Promotions Manager to work in the IRDR and Humanitarian Institute, to develop the Humanitarian Tech Hub as a core activity of the Humanitarian Institute, whilst also developing enterprise and professional training initiatives and MOOCs for the IRDR, developing our strategy for recruiting graduate students and promoting the IRDR’s activities through public events, publicity and the media, mapping onto new UCL and MAPS Faculty priorities.

We are seeking to appoint a bright, dynamic and motivated individual, with the ability to develop enterprise activities and experience of marketing educational products and managing relationships with a wide range of stakeholders. They should have knowledge issues and teaching themes in risk and disaster reduction, and of approaches to marketing graduate study. We hope to appoint a candidate with excellent organisation, communication and IT skills, who will work well both in a team and independently.
