Job Details

At the University of Bradford, our focus is on creating the conditions for social, cultural, and economic impact. We are committed to social inclusion. Our work to expand opportunity and enable students to reach their potential, has led to us topping the Social Mobility Index of English universities for the last two years. Our University Strategy sets out our ambitions for 2025, which we will achieve by using our proud heritage as a springboard and remaining steadfast in our commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion.


Thanks to Expanding Excellence in England funding, the University of Bradford’s Centre for Digital Innovations in Health & Social Care is embarking on an exciting programme of rapid growth. We are seeking a Centre Coordinator to support the successful delivery of strategic objectives and the operational day-to-day activities of the Centre.

Our Centre is multidisciplinary, undertaking high quality co-created applied research that (i) informs the design and implementation of new technologies in national and international health and care systems; and (ii) explores the impact of such technologies on patients, service users, carers, and health and social care professionals. Employing theory-driven approaches for design and evaluation, the Centre’s research offers an understanding of the contextual factors that impact the success of an innovation, informing both future technology design and its implementation. Research in the Centre is mixed method, combining qualitative data that delivers deep insight with the quantitative data that caters to the needs of policymakers.

What you will be doing:

This is an indefinite position, available from 1st August 2024. The successful applicant will work to establish, maintain, and grow effective relationships with both businesses and health and social care partners, identifying opportunities for consultancy and delivery of postgraduate programmes and CPD, while also maintaining oversight of the Centre’s finances.
