Due to recent investment  Brunel University London are looking to recruit a team of experienced individuals to build research collaborations, generate research income and maximise the impact of the University’s research, in the market areas of Advanced Manufacturing and Automotive, Big Data and IT, Energy and Cleantech, Healthcare and Medtech, and the Creative Industries. The Senior BDM, who will report into the Head of Business Development and Innovation, will manage the team of Buisness Development Managers but also carry out business development in their own right.

As a Business Development Manager, you will be required to drive engagement with relevant external stakeholders and to build strategic collaborations with industry, policy-makers and academic groups in the above market areas aligned to Brunel’s areas of research expertise. Whilst these are new, high-profile positions, you will be part of a well-established, proactive research support and development team. 

You should have extensive specialist technical and market knowledge and expertise in one of the market areas listed above in order to provide credibility with both academics and external stakeholders. Proven experience of successful business development, in either a commercial or academic environment, is required together with an excellent knowledge of the research and innovation funding landscape. A good understanding of the strategic drivers in higher education is also essential. The positions require an extremely flexible attitude and an ability to deliver successful outcomes through a professional, responsive and creative approach.  

In order to create a strong team from the start, with an appropriate portfolio of technical and market expertise, all short listed candidates will be invited to attend an assessment day together, which will take place on the 24 September 2018.

For an informal discussion about the positions, please contact Averil Horton on or 07973 898 547
