Join our Research and Innovation Office

1x Full time and 1x Part time, Open ended   

We are investing heavily in the growth and development of our Research and Innovation Office and are recruiting to a large number of roles to strengthen our high-performing service.  

We have two exciting opportunities for Partnership Development Managers to join our Research and Innovation team. 

Both roles will support academic and other professional service colleagues to develop collaborative partnerships with organisations, scoping, delivery and preparation of large, strategic, multi-disciplinary, cross-cutting innovation led funding applications across the research strengths of the University to accelerate the translation of research outputs into social, economic, and cultural impacts. 

These two roles will have a primary focus, one in Social Sciences and Humanities (at 0.6 FTE) and the other on business led funding (at 1.0FTE) – for example Innovate UK, both delivering on areas emerging from the research and innovation strategy and delivery plan as well as other aligned cross-University delivery plans (known as ‘Core Plans’).    

For the FULL TIME job description and person specification please see here.  

For the PART TIME full job description and person specification please see here.  

Please specify in your application if you are interested in the full time, part time, or both positions.
