IAAPS Ltd is part of the Institute for Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (IAAPS) which is a new research institute that builds on 40 years of successful engagement with the UK automotive industries by the current propulsion research group. Critical to the delivery of IAAPS is a new £70m Research & Innovation facility which will establish IAAPS as a global centre of excellence supporting the delivery of future low and zero carbon passenger cars. The new facility will expand considerably the propulsion research conducted and is currently under construction at the Bristol and Bath Science Park and will be opened in early 2021.

What’s involved

This is an exciting opportunity to work with the Institute senior team. You will lead the business development activity that ensures IAAPS Ltd delivers its strategic objectives. This will involve building on a strong portfolio of relationships and research projects, together with sustaining a pipeline of industrial and grant funded research.

  • Curious. Intellectually rigorous and investigative; we step back from problems to explore challenges and deliver quality insights to our partners.
  • Thorough and committed to quality delivery. We value and invest in the people, systems and processes needed to deliver for our partners.

  • Competitive package up to £60,000, plus bonus.
  • 26 days holiday plus the bank holidays
  • Competitive pension scheme
