Summary of the role
The University of Exeter is a leading research-intensive university with a significant range of academic, scientific and policy expertise, research and training offers. It has strong relationships with businesses and other non-academic partners in these sectors and makes a real impact on society and the economy.
It is particularly strong in its engagement and policy support for innovation at regional and local level in the South West of England. As a consequence of this, the University has been asked to lead the development of a Devon-wide Housing Commission.
We are looking for an externally focused self-starter looking to make a significant contribution to the region. You will need to direct senior academic input and manage external relationships in the region.
The purpose of the Devon Housing Commission is to conduct an in-depth analysis of the various local housing markets, related socio-economic profiles and model demographic change to make the case for a step change in social and housing policy and pragmatic solutions to be delivered locally moving into the next decade.
Through in-depth socio-economic and demographic analysis and community and stakeholder engagement, the University will produce a report with recommendations to influence significant housing and social policy change and practical solutions that will start to address the broken local housing markets across geographic Devon. You will commission, manage and guide this work.
The postholder will need to lead the creation of the Commission (anticipated to run for 9 months), recruit Commissioners, report to the Devon Housing Task Force, create a Workplan and Timetable and ensure the Commission delivers it recommendations on-time and to-budget.
Innovation, Impact and Business (IIB) is the professional team that supports and drives the universities external engagement and knowledge exchange activities. Its key aim is to secure significantly greater value and impact from relationships with partners drawing on the University’s education, research and physical assets. This includes research collaboration, commercial services, new venture development, skills, placements, and education partnerships. The Housing Commission Head will be a Senior Impact and Partnership Development Manager and will work as part of the IIB Senior Management Team.
