The Knowledge Transfer Partnerships scheme is a UK-wide programme funded by Innovate UK, enabling businesses to improve competitiveness, productivity and performance.

The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) team at the University of Bath, brings together academics, graduates, and businesses on strategic projects. We support the University’s Research & Innovation Services group both in active projects and in the grant funding proposal pipeline. 

We consistently achieve outstanding results with Spirent Communications, a Bath KTP, announced among the finalists for the national KTP Best of the Best Awards 2019.

Due to the team’s growing success in acquiring KTP grant awards, we are looking for an individual to contribute to the recruitment and administration of funded projects within the KTP program, having responsibility for pre-award and post-award activities as well as administration for both business and grant income. This could include liaising with Innovate UK advisors, industrial partners, academic principal investigators, KTP Associates on project issues, and liaising with professional services departments such as Finance and Human Resources.

Due to the national distribution of the projects and the nature of the role, a willingness to undertake regional travel for partner company site visits is essential. This may require early start hours and/or late finish times, depending on the location and timing of the meetings. 

You must have the flexibility to accommodate a working week that could vary considerably to meet the demands of the workflow.

This position is part time working 18.25 hours per week (0.5 FTE) 

For any informal enquiries regarding this role please contact Izaro Lopez Garcia, Industrial Partnerships Manager (ilg23@bath.ac.uk)
