Job overview

The Faculty of Business and Law has engagement with the business community at its heart. There is a long history of engagement at a variety of levels within the Faculty. A new external engagement centre within the Faculty of Business and Law will be launched in September 2017. The aim of the centre is to increase commercial activity and to ensure that commercial projects undertaken link into the Faculty's learning, teaching, research and knowledge exchange activities.

The Associate Directors (External Engagement) hold key roles within the new external engagement centre. They will be responsible for business development and leading teams of people to deliver commercial income projects; they will also be personally involved in the delivery of commercial projects.

Increasing the financial contribution made by the Faculty's commercial activity and linking this activity to teaching, learning and research is at the core of the role.

The post holder will undertake commercial-facing work for 0.8 of their time; the other 0.2 will be linked to teaching/research/knowledge exchange within one of the Faculty departments.

Other benefits, in addition to salary:

• a generous holiday allowance of 35 Days
• up to 12.5 bank holiday/closure days per year in addition;
• flexible working;
• excellent defined benefit pension schemes;
• option to participate in the cycle to work scheme;
• family friendly policies;

• option to purchase childcare vouchers.

This post is based at our lively Frenchay campus where we have invested in the latest facilities and resources to give our students access to everything they need to succeed – with £200m being spent on new state-of-the-art learning spaces and accommodation between now and 2020 to enhance our offer even further. Frenchay campus is within close proximity to excellent motorway links and within walking distance of two train stations, making UWE Frenchay Campus the ideal place to work for those wishing to commute to Bristol.
