As part of our strategic plan Sussex 2025 we set challenging new priorities for knowledge exchange starting in 2019/20 and are now recruiting a new team of Business Partnerships Managers to join our Innovation and Business Partnerships team and build on our successes.
We seek Business Partnership Managers with strong communication skills, commercial awareness, creativity and a collaborative approach to provide expert support and guidance to both academic colleagues and external partners acting as the key point of liaison whilst developing opportunities for collaboration.

The Business Partnerships Manager (Social Science) should demonstrate an interest in innovation and commercialisation of research from social science, arts and humanities and have an awareness of relevant business sectors.
