Reference 047798

Join a successful, enthusiastic team supporting University of Edinburgh researchers looking to become consultants to industry and other clients in one of the world’s leading universities in a city regularly voted one of the best places to live in the UK.

You will support academic staff at the University, primarily in the University’s College of Medicine & Veterinary Medicine, and will be expected to manage a portfolio of academics and their clients to ensure consultancy targets are met.

The Consultancy team at EI delivers contracts worth around £6-7m in gross value and around 600 in number each year, working with academic staff across all parts of the University and with clients on an international scale.

As consultancy is often the first step in a relationship that develops into a lasting collaboration between an industrial partner and the University, we are seeking dynamic, proactive candidates with experience in sales and client relationship management. This is a senior role for highly driven self-starters. Experience of the Higher Education sector and a sound understanding of consultancy contract terms is desirable.
