Job Description

We have an excellent opportunity for you to build on your previous experience of drafting and negotiating commercial agreements to use your skills to support industrially funded research projects.

In this role you will be based in Research Services, drafting, reviewing and negotiating contracts for research and innovation projects for our Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre and Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre. You will build professional relationships with key internal and external partners to understand the needs of our researchers, how our research will drive intellectual advances to industrial challenges and therefore and translate this into contracts which support the University of Sheffield’s aims and those of our funders and partners.

You are:

  • able to confidently manage relationships with key service users;
  • experienced in drafting legal contractual terms;
  • someone who can find pragmatic solutions and compromise to ensure the contracts are suitable for the work to be
    undertaken; and
  • comfortable and capable of working across a range of priorities, delivering short and longer-term deadlines alongside
    each other.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to best effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
