Can you work collaboratively with others to achieve a shared objective? Can you coordinate activities across multiple projects at the same time? Do you want to play a key role in the delivery of the Knowledge Transfer Partnership scheme?

Your main focus will be on keeping our growing portfolio of live KTP projects on track and ensuring information across multiple simultaneous projects is kept up-to-date.

You will need to be able to use your energy, determination and communication skills to organise project meetings between busy and senior people from industry, funders and academia; and your administration and organisation skills to track key dates, share essential documents with project partners, take minutes, compile financial reports and set and monitor routine project tasks undertaken by other team members.
