Innovation Centres Director
The University of Portsmouth has a distinctive identity that has at the heart of its Mission to "create, share and apply knowledge to make a difference to individuals and society through world-leading research and innovation". Central to this is the commercialisation of its own knowledge and working with innovative entrepreneurs and companies to support their growth.
To deliver this major investments have been made establishing four business innovation and growth facilities, each occupying its own building: Portsmouth Technopole, Innovation Space, Cell Block Studios and the Future Technologies Centre. These are all underpinned by the extensive business facing support work and partnerships undertaken by our staff.
The University now seeks a highly experienced Innovation Centres Director to drive major growth and value creation, and establish an inspirational and effective innovation ecosystem that has local-to-international impact. This role will combine your ability to support and develop early stage to mid-stage companies, with your experience of leading and developing University Incubators or Innovation Centres.
This is an exciting time to join the University and this role will provide you with the opportunity to make a significant contribution to its success and future growth.
