We’re looking for someone who has a track record of working in research institutions and/or with researchers/academics, to ensure we keep an eye on academic rigour and to enable the research to be published.
Research development and management: This role will be responsible for the oversight of fast-paced, high performing grants and contracts, but also developing new proposals.
Global Team Leader: We’re looking for someone to lead and inspire the team but also ensure our research work is plugged into the agency both at Hub and through our leadership teams. We’re looking for someone committed to our global team and vision, and committed to values and culture.
