Greenwich Research & Enterprise is the University’s central office responsible for developing a supportive research culture and establishing links with industry and enterprise. GRE works across four service areas: research development services, commercialisation and innovation services, research & enterprise training (including postgraduate administration and training) and business support services.

As part of providing high quality support pivotal to its research environment, the university is now recruiting an part-time (0.5 FTE) Impact Officer to join the GRE Research Development Services team at Greenwich. 

This role will support public and stakeholder engagement activities geared to generating economic, social, and environmental impact from the university’s research. This role will involve advising and assisting our researchers with the design and execution of new and ongoing knowledge exchange activities, in particular those geared to bring about intended impacts.  To that end, a key aspect of the work will involve providing expertise on the inclusion of impact monitoring and evaluation mechanisms within these activities to track impacts, and support routes to impact as they emerge.  The curation of these pathways to impact using a systematic record-keeping approach will also fall within the remit of this role.
