University of Bristol

vacanciesin.eu

This position is a part-time maternity cover at 0.6FTE (with flexibility on days of the week worked) until January 2025.

We are seeking a highly motivated and talented individual to join the Programmes team in the Division of Research, Enterprise & Innovation. The Programmes team:

  • lead pre-proposal, on areas of strategic development in research and innovation,
  • focusing on ambitious inter-disciplinary research challenge areas that are a priority, and,
  • progressing activity, including working with external partners, to maximise benefits for the University.

As a member of the Programmes team you would help drive pre-award activity; and so enabling the University to be ready for bidding into new funding opportunities from UKRI and others.

The focus of this Programme Manager role is initially planned to be to Climate & Environment.

For each Programme, the role involves developing a vision of how the University stands to benefit; and progressing the activity in such a way to maximise and realise those benefits. The Programme Manager will usually work closely with identified senior academic leads and will draw on resource and capability across the University to progress activities.

Good teamwork across both academic and professional services colleagues is essential, as well as relationship building with external organisations. Programme Managers are continually required to handle ambiguity, uncertainty and conflicting interests in pursuit of the programme vision.

Initially, this role will focus on developing areas of our Climate & Environment plan for example, climate change mitigation, land use, space.

  • You are motivated by the idea of leading the early-stage development of cutting-edge research and enterprise programmes in a university setting.
  • You will be a good convener of people and enjoy engaging with people from different sectors and backgrounds around a specific topic or theme.
  • You should have a relevant degree (or equivalent qualification or professional experience) and ideally have experience of applying project and/or programme management methodologies, and business development experience with funders, including proven experience of the preparation of business cases and plans, and applications for large scale funding opportunities.
  • You will be a self-starter, someone who can get up to speed quickly by applying their initiative, who thrives on deciphering large amounts of information to identify the salient points, is mindful of competing priorities, and can drive activity forward in a sustainable manner.

For informal queries about the role, please contact Fiona Hyland, Head of Research & Enterprise Programmes – [email protected]

This advert will close at23:59 GMTon Tuesday 2nd January 2024.

We recently launched our strategy  to 2030 tying together our mission, vision and values.

The University of Bristol aims to be a place where everyone feels able to be themselves and do their best in an inclusive working environment where all colleagues can thrive and reach their full potential. We want to attract, develop, and retain individuals with different experiences, backgrounds and perspectives – particularly people of colour, LGBT+ and disabled people – because diversity of people and ideas remains integral to our excellence as a global civic institution.
