Head of Research & Impact Support
(Ref: BU02915)
Salary: £51,799 - £60,022 p.a. (Grade 9)


An opportunity is available to lead the University’s new Integrated Research & Impact Support team, covering the pre-award, post-award and knowledge exchange portfolios.

This post is one of four management posts in which Bangor is investing in its new research and impact support team.

This is a new role which offers an exciting opportunity for someone with considerable enthusiasm for, and experience of, research and impact support operations and the development of improvement strategies. The University has high ambitions for the future, and you will lead a team dedicated to supporting the University's research growth and development agenda, developing the quality and value of the University’s research and impact portfolios, and ensuring that robust systems and processes are in place to support the research community.

You will lead the team to deliver, support and foster a culture of good service, innovation and collaboration, and take ownership of strategically significant and/or complex matters. You will promote a collaborative approach incorporating research leaders across our academic Schools and Colleges, and key colleagues across Professional Services to ensure seamless business processes and support are in place across all aspects of research and impact activity.

Candidates should be educated to degree standard (or equivalent) and will possess excellent interpersonal and influencing skills and the ability to build relationships and engage proactively and effectively with staff and stakeholders at the most senior level. You should demonstrate expertise and understanding of the HE Sector and of the external research funding environment, and how this relates to strategic research investment decisions and the development and delivery of research and impact strategy, including commercialisation of research and outward-facing business and skills developments.

This is a full-time, permanent position.

The successful candidate will be expected to commence as soon as possible. 

The ability to communicate in Welsh is desirable for this post.

This role will be located on campus at Bangor. Through our Dynamic Working framework, there will also be the option to spend some time working remotely (although remaining in the UK) to support work life balance, which will be discussed further with candidates at interview. 

Applications will also be considered to carry out this role on a part-time or job share basis. 

Applications will only be accepted via our on-line recruitment website, jobs.bangor.ac.uk. However, in cases of access issues due to disability, paper application forms are available by telephoning 01248 383865.

Closing date for applications: Friday 15th July 2022
