Background

Every year, BBSRC (part of UK Research and Innovation, UKRI) invests around £450 million in world-class bioscience.

  • As part of the impact team, develop a corporate perspective on BBSRC’s impact evidence base and provide a central point of contact for impact evidence within BBSRC.
  • Manage the internal communication of all impact case studies produced by the impact evidence team including maintaining the internal database for impact evidence and assist colleagues with finding relevant material as needed.
  • Work closely with the BBSRC Communications Business Partner and the UKRI Content Team to ensure effective dissemination of impact evidence, providing a regular supply of interesting, engaging content which communicates BBSRC key messages effectively.
  • Contribute to group and office wide activities, for example, attending BBSRC, Cross-Council and external meetings and deputising for colleagues within the team
