The Royal Society, the UK’s premier scientific body, is looking for an exceptional individual to manage its research funding policies and procedures.

Location: Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG plus hybrid remote working

The Royal Society is the independent scientific academy of the UK dedicated to promoting excellence in science. Our Grants team manage a range of fellowship and grants programmes which provide research funding support for high calibre scientists in the UK and overseas to conduct curiosity-led research.

It is an exciting time to join the Royal Society’s Grants team as it expands to meet the needs of an evolving research funding landscape. We are looking for an exceptional and highly motivated research funding professional to work within the Grant Operations team in a diverse role that will focus on improving research policies and processes to ensure that schemes and programmes are being delivered in the most effective way.

Ensuring that Grants activity is following both organisational and sector good practice and working with multiple stakeholders, including Royal Society Fellows, this exciting role will manage the evolution of the Society’s research funding policies and practices to best support the work of the exceptional scientists funded in the Society’s grant portfolio of over £100m per year.

You will set up management information mechanisms to monitor and identify opportunities to strengthen business processes and, working with the entire team, manage improvement activity across Grants to ensure that activity is delivered to a consistently high standard.

This is an exciting opportunity to support the Royal Society’s grant-making activity and to work as part of a dynamic and passionate team.

During COVID-19 our employees have been working mostly remotely, but we are now transitioning to a hybrid pattern of working in the office and remotely for some roles and will be happy to discuss working patterns with candidates. Candidates considering applying should note that working outside of the UK is not permitted as part of our flexible working approach and travel from home to the London office will be at their personal expense regardless of location. With a fantastic historic central London office near St James’ Park, we hope to find an inclusive working arrangement that suits candidates.
