We are recruiting an Ethics and Governance Manager to lead and develop the University’s policies, procedures, infrastructure and operational systems.

The key purpose of this role is to ensure compliance with legal and regulatory requirements to minimise financial and reputational risk to the University.  As the University's specialist in this area, you will oversee the University ethics and governance framework which covers all disciplines and all levels, from undergraduate through to funded staff research.  You will also manage the due diligence process.

The role is based in the Department of Research and Knowledge Exchange; however, you will be expected to build collaborative relationships and networks across the university, relevant national bodies and other universities.  As the successful applicant you will need to have a comprehensive knowledge of the research ethics and governance environment and of relevant legislation and regulations within Higher Education.  In order to be successful in this post, you should have:

  • A strong track record of initiating and delivering successful pan-institutional initiatives including projects, policies and processes in a large organisation working across disciplines.
  • Comprehensive knowledge of research, ethics, integrity and due diligence governance, procedures and legislation including the workings of relevant external authorities and regulatory agencies
  • Previous experience in designing and delivering training to an academic and non-academic audience.
  • Proven ability to manage and motivate staff.
  • A comprehensive understanding of the challenges facing higher education including detailed knowledge and understanding of the policy and funding environment governing the management of university research & knowledge exchange.

This post is offered on a full-time, permanent basis, and we welcome applications form candidates seeking job share opportunities.

The University has an agile working framework, which enables some home working, with approval from the line manager.

Further details:

The University is committed to creating and maintaining an inclusive environment for all staff regardless of age, disability, family or caring responsibilities, gender identity, marital status, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief (including non-belief), sex and sexual orientation. We embrace equality and diversity in our working, learning, research and teaching environment and are committed to maintaining a supportive and inclusive community. We particularly encourage applicants from Minority Ethnic backgrounds because the University is under-represented by Minority Ethnic staff.

For the vast majority of our roles, we operate an agile working system with time split between working on campus and at the employee's home. It is the University's expectation that home working will take place within the UK.
