Cities globally have vital roles to play in meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals – including tackling climate change and reducing poverty.  You will be working in an exciting area that brings academics, policy makers and the commercial sector together to help improve the quality of life for citizens, and to demonstrate how urban challenges can be addressed.  The Institute for Future Cities is seeking an experienced Business Development Manager to work closely with its senior management team to drive forward our research agenda, and to extend our partnerships globally. You will be focussed on responding to funding opportunities, identifying those most relevant to the Institute’s mission, and developing bids alongside the Faculty and University professional services and the Institute directors, as well being part of a team delivering successful projects.

To be successful, you must have proven bid and tender writing skills, and experience of project management. You should be confident and have good interpersonal skills, as your role will often be the first point of contact with potential clients and partners.

You will be joining a highly motivated and focussed team who have a strong track record in helping the University and its partners achieve their key objectives.
