Job Description

Are you interested in working for a world top-100 University? Do you want to take an active role in improving the region’s health and wellbeing outcomes as well as supporting social inclusion?

We have an exciting opportunity in the Partnerships and Regional Engagement team (PRE) for someone with a passion for health & wellbeing and social inclusion, who is looking to use their honed skill set and enthusiastic approach to make a real impact on our regional health and care ecosystem.

In this varied and dynamic role, you will be responsible for supporting the Head of Regional Engagement in delivering two high profile themes of the University’s Regional Engagement Work Programme:

  1. Improving the region’s health and wellbeing outcomes
  2. Supporting social inclusion and community capacity building

The University plays an important convening role in the region and has strong links with many different organisations with the primary aim of bringing prosperity – whether this is economically, socially, environmentally or culturally – to the region. Being able to bring these partners together is something the University has an excellent track record in and a role which we see as part of our duty as a civic university.

The University’s strategy is clear about its role in the Sheffield City Region (SCR) region. It uses its anchor institution role and world-leading research, innovation and education as a catalyst for the region’s social, cultural, sustainable and economic development. The Regional Engagement Work Programme, designed in partnership with stakeholders in order to meet their strategic priorities, is a focused delivery programme based on strengths, institutional ambitions and a deep understanding of our partners’ needs and the unique contribution that it can make.

You will be a highly proactive and output focussed member of the team with outstanding network building and project management skills. You will be someone who enjoys the challenge of a varied workload and will actively partake in our culture of continuous improvement and ideas generation within the team. Excellent time management and prioritisation skills are essential.

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 from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
