The University of Cambridge Policy Evidence Unit for University Commercialisation and Innovation Policy (UCI) is a leading UK centre of excellence dedicated to improving the evidence base and insights available to governments, funding agencies and universities to help them drive a step-change in university contributions to innovation through commercialisation and knowledge exchange (KE). Established in 2020, our work has had a significant impact on the development of government policies related to commercialisation and KE, and on university practice. In 2023, UCI received a significant expansion to its grant from Research England (part of UKRI), in particular to work in close partnership with them to develop and launch a new national capability and centre for knowledge exchange (KE) evidence, metrics and data. UCI is based at the Institute for Manufacturing in West Cambridge.
We are now looking for a highly motivated and capable Programme Coordinator to co-ordinate activities within the UCI to ensure its efficient and effective operation, and in particular the nationally important UCI-Research England (RE) joint work programme to develop and launch a national centre for knowledge exchange evidence, data and metrics. Working closely with the Director of UCI and the UCI-RE joint work programme team, you will be responsible for, among other things, coordinating day-to-day activities, developing detailed project plans and documentation, supporting stakeholder engagement, organising events and meetings, and providing financial management and administrative support.
The ideal candidate will be educated to degree level/Level 6 vocational qualifications or an equivalent level of practical experience. You will possess excellent communication, interpersonal and organisational skills and experience of working in an administrative/project coordination role. You should be able to demonstrate advanced knowledge of project coordination and strong research, analysis and reporting skills. Previous exposure to supporting the management of projects would be desirable, as well as experience of working in a higher education setting.
If you think you are the right candidate for this role, then we would be delighted to hear from you.
