Collaboration Development Manager based at the University of Leeds

We will consider both full and part time applicants to this role – part time minimum 50%

We are looking for a highly motivated individual to play a key role in identifying, promoting and developing collaborative initiatives across the White Rose University Consortium. This involves working with senior management, academic and support staff from the Universities, as well as liaison with external organisations such as the Research Councils and HEFCE. As Collaboration Development Manager, you will have the opportunity to contribute across a breadth of existing White Rose initatives, as well as pursuing new opportunities such as supporting large scale bids to secure external investment. This creates an interesting and varied role, where your input can make a major contribution across research, learning and teaching, and knowledge exchange. The role is physically based at the University of Leeds, but you would work across the three Universities.

About the White Rose University Consortium (WRUC)

Since 1997, the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York have built on their individual strengths by collaborating through the White Rose University Consortium to add value from partnership activity in research, enterprise, innovation, and learning and teaching. Working with a range of partners from the private and public sector, both in the UK and overseas, projects to a value of over £150M have been secured. As the Higher Education sector undergoes numerous changes and challenges, our commitment to creating exciting collaborations remains and we continuously seek new partners on a regional, national and international basis.

About You

The breadth of current initiatives and future opportunities means that the role would ideally suit someone who is ambitious, enjoys pursuing opportunities and tackling challenges. The nature of this work is often varied and so would suit someone who is comfortable handling a diverse range of work activities. A key part of the role is working with people from all levels of the Universities, and so it is essential that you possess good interpersonal skills and the ability to build strong relationships. To be effective in the role you should possess knowledge of the higher education sector and how research-led universities operate.
