You will be responsible for building relationships and identifying funding opportunities to support Faculty/School Knowledge Exchange plans. You will develop collaborative projects between businesses and academics, securing income for these knowledge exchange activities. This will often involve preparing funding proposals for research projects that are fully funded by external organisations or via a competitive research grant scheme. You will also host workshops and events that inform and promote knowledge exchange activities.

You will understand and be interested in the application and impact of humanities and social science research to a range of external organisations. You will have the influencing skills to bring people from academia and business together to develop collaborative projects.

You will be based in Research & Innovation Services, within a team of other Managers, who will be focussing on other Faculties and the School of Management.
