Enterprise and Employer Engagement is a central unit at UWS that leads our engagement with industry to ensure that we maintain our prominence as the business-friendly university. It takes responsibility for the employer engagement, business partnerships, business development and commercialisation functions that aim to have both ‘one knock on the door’ of the businesses with whom we want to engage, and a single point of entry to our University. The business development function within this relatively new department in the University helps create the relationships with industry, the public and third sectors to deliver a broad range of services including consultancy, training and other forms of knowledge exchange. 

This new position of KTP Manager will be a vital part of the business development function making a significant contribution to the financial targets and performance of the School(s) by developing valuable relationships with the organisations that are identified as a good fit for a KTP project with our academics.  You will manage the identification, development and delivery of KTP applications and awards targets.  

You will play a lead role in defining a plan for each of the KTP themed calls including the open ones and will act as the principle driver within the University for KTP.  For the post, you will be a graduate with a proven track record in successful KTP development.
