Senior Business Manager

 

UCL Business PLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of University College London and we aim to generate income and create capital value for UCL and partner hospitals through the commercial exploitation of its extensive research base.

 

We are looking to recruit a Senior Business Manager to join the BioPharm team, who will be responsible for the technology transfer activities of mainly the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology as well as other University departments.

 

The individual we wish to identify will be able to demonstrate a strong grounding in a biological or medical related discipline to PhD level, together with significant commercial experience and an excellent grasp of intellectual property issues.

 

Previous technology transfer experience is desirable. The individual will be highly motivated and enthusiastic, with excellent negotiation, communication and organisational skills.

 

The successful applicant will be required to work closely with academics and clinicians in identifying wide-ranging novel technologies, enable the development of the technologies, and ultimately the commercialisation of them at the interface of academia, healthcare and industry.

 

This is an exciting, highly dynamic role which is differentiated from most other technology transfer business manager roles. UCLB recently raised two investment funds: the UCL Technology Fund (£50 million, VC-backed fund) and the Apollo Therapeutics Fund (£40 million, in collaboration with Imperial Innovations, Cambridge Enterprise, GSK, AZ and J&J).  The individual will be expected to work closely with both funds, thus giving direct and significant experience in working with such funds.

 

Salary range for the Senior Business Managers will be between £45k and £60k pro-rata dependent on experience. In addition, the company operates a contributory pension scheme and performance-related pay scheme.

 

How to apply:

Please send a copy of your CV, together with a covering letter and deal sheet, to Sarah Barton of Robert Barton Associates at enquiries@rbasearch.co.uk.

 

The closing date for applications is midday, 29 September 2017.

First interviews will take place on Thursday, 12 October 2017.

 

UCL Business PLC is an equal opportunities employer.
