Business Managers – Permanent

Application deadline: 11 September 2022

Business Manager Job Pack

In the light of recent Engineering-related spinout exits from Senceive and Satalia and with an increasing pipeline of opportunities arising from the UCL research base, we are seeking to recruit two additional Business Managers to join the Physical Science & Engineering team.

The individuals were are seeking will lead on the development and commercialisation of a portfolio of projects arising from across the Faculties of Engineering, Mathematics & Physical Science and the Built Environment. These roles are highly varied as you will be responsible for the effective management of projects from initial contact with academic inventors to successful commercialisation of their ideas.  You will seek out new opportunities, evaluate commercial value and implement commercialisation strategies.  You will work with a variety of stakeholders including academics, management teams, licensees, and investors.

You will find a breadth of technology diversity within Engineering and Physical Sciences area at UCL that is highly stimulating and will relish the challenge of managing a portfolio of projects at different stages of development as exciting. Based within one of Europe’s most innovative eco-systems, you will be working with cutting edge technologies and will be able to help these discoveries make a difference in the world.

Applicants will have at minimum a first degree in an Engineering related discipline and also be able to demonstrate experience and success in technology commercialisation. Previous university technology transfer experience would be helpful, but is not essential. This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual, who has the negotiation, communication and organisational skills necessary to identify and develop early stage technology commercialisation projects.

UCL Business Ltd is an equal opportunities employer.
