Are you looking for a new challenge? We’re seeking an exceptional individual to play a central role in the administration of our new £1.25m ESRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) 2023-28 programme, and our £281,000 EPSRC IAA 2022-25 programme. You’ll be providing advice and support to applicants and award holders, organising a range of impact-related events in conjunction with external partners, and producing regular reports on the impact which has been achieved by our IAAs. 

You’ll be based in the University’s Research and Knowledge Exchange (RKE) team and will report to and work closely with the University Impact Manager (who is also the ESRC and EPSRC IAA Manager), and with the Senior Impact Acceleration Account Officer. 

You will join a friendly and supportive Research Impact Team which is dedicated to helping researchers to optimise the real-world impact of their research at every level from local communities to the global economy and society.  

We’re looking for a flexible and adaptable individual who has experience of working in a busy clerical or administrative role, including working with electronic filing systems. We’re seeking someone who has excellent written and verbal communication skills; the ability to organise and prioritise their own workload, and multi-task effectively; the ability to work as part of a busy team, and a high level of accuracy and attention to detail, and excellent IT skills, including Microsoft Word, Outlook and Excel.

The role is offered as ‘dynamic working’, which means working both on campus and from home dependent on the activity.
