About the role

The role requires you to provide contract support for research and knowledge transfer activities, primarily funded by the private sector. You will have responsibility for a large and varied portfolio of agreements, covering a range of complex requirements, alongside which you will be developing and maintaining positive client and researcher relationships.

As part of the role, you will be drafting, reviewing and negotiating the terms of contracts and advising University staff on the pertinent aspects of these agreements.

About you

Being educated to a degree (or equivalent) level, you will also have experience of working with intellectual property. Alongside this, ideally you will have worked in the Higher Education environment and have prior experience of negotiating research agreements.

The ability to communicate effectively is essential in this role and you will be working with colleagues across our Research & Enterprise Division, academic staff and external clients. This varied and complex area of work requires you to have strong organisational skills and an excellent attention to detail, to ensure tight deadlines are adhered to.
