European and International Manager

University of Cambridge - Cambridge Research Office

The University is looking for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to lead the operational management of the dedicated EU and International team within the Research Operations Office (ROO), providing expert line management support to colleagues, as well as expertise to applicants and the broader University in securing and managing funding from the European Commission and key international funders.

The European Commission is a major funder of research at the University, with the ERC and Marie Curie schemes being particularly successful alongside the University's large portfolio of collaborative grants. Notwithstanding, the University aims to continue to build on these successes and also broaden and increase its funding from overseas sources to help maintain its position as a global research leader. Reporting to (and on occasion deputising for) the Head of EU and International, you will manage a dedicated support team, drawing on your expert knowledge of the university research funding landscape, along with extensive management experience within a financial-reporting, research-support capacity. Your previous experience of successfully managing a team engaged in supporting large-scale proposal submissions and complex financial reporting, often in a changing environment, will be utilised to best support the University's portfolio of EU and International proposals and awards. 

Building on work already begun, a primary objective of the role will be to support the Head of EU & International in embedding a culture of continuous process improvement, with a view to planning and implementing any necessary changes to ensure the team is resilient, flexible, appropriately skilled. To be truly effective, we are looking for candidates who can sensitively and proactively create and manage change ¿ both within a team and in its integration with the broader support networks. You will possess a wide range of skills from expert knowledge in applying for and administering research funding, to an ability to understand and shape effective and efficient administrative processes, as well as successful line management of teams operating in a research support function. A thorough knowledge of EU funding schemes and their reporting requirements would be welcomed, but proven experience of managing financial reporting across a range of complex funding schemes, plus a real desire to quickly gain expertise on the intricacies of this key funder, are equally welcome. 

This challenging and rewarding role will provide you with the opportunity to work within one of the world's leading and most prestigious research-intensive universities; further developing your effective management skills through managing a professional team; developing strong professional links with a broad range of UK and international institutions, sponsors and collaborators; and being at the forefront of reviewing service delivery and helping to shape change in a dynamic and fast-moving environment.

You will ideally have an undergraduate degree with a combination of relevant experience in people management, process management, and significant experience in complex grant administration, ideally in a university. EU Research and Innovation grant management experience is especially welcomed.

Your application should clearly set out how you meet the criteria listed in the person specification (the skills and experience required for the role) along with relevant examples. Candidates will be shortlisted based on these criteria.

We have embraced hybrid working and we are currently trialling in-person working within teams 2 days per week from Greenwich House. This arrangement is currently temporary. Some roles may require additional onsite working according to business need and this is subject to discussion with the recruiting manager.
