Trusted Research emphasises the importance of facilitating and increasing international collaboration whilst recognising the increasing complexity of those collaborations and requirements from Government and funders. The Trusted Research Officer will sit within the Research Operations Risk and Compliance function, and will be responsible for reviewing and monitoring research activities at key stages; ensuring compliance with external statutory and contractual obligations, and funder terms and conditions, as well as adherence to university policy and procedures.

Reporting to the Head of Trusted Research, the role holder will work across a number of governance frameworks carrying out regular reviews and checks, identifying and reporting potential risks, and proposing corrective action measures where appropriate. Working closely with and supporting the Trusted Research team in the implementation and management of a cohesive risk, compliance and assurance framework, assisting in the gathering of information internally and externally, and performing regular administrative tasks and maintaining the management systems of ongoing projects.

The role holder will provide support and guidance to staff across the research community and will contribute to the development of training and guidance material, continual improvement to processes and procedures, to ensure the team provides an effective and supportive assurance framework across our research portfolio.
