EIRA are currently recruiting for two exciting roles within the central team, based in the Research and Enterprise Office at the University of Essex.

The EIRA Marketing Assistant is a new full-time, fixed-term post until 31st March 2021 to support the marketing and events function of the project.

Working predominantly alongside the EIRA Engagement and Communications Officer, this role will maintain a range of communications resources and deliver training events that support the successful delivery of the EIRA project. This role will also provide communications and marketing support to the Senior Innovation Marketing Officer to prepare and maintain marketing material that engage both internal and external audiences.

We are also recruiting for an EIRA Director on a fixed term basis to continue leading the EIRA project consortium.

This role will develop and deliver the programme of activities funded through the £4.7 million Research England award, which is supporting the needs of business through a combination of well-established and more novel methods. The Director will continue to work closely with all EIRA collaborators and partners, and the Research Offices of the partner universities. They will lead a small directorate to plan and deliver the programme, and coordinate with locally situated KE Fellows and KE teams, as well as network partners to ensure successful delivery of the programme. The Director will be responsible for succession planning looking at work with partners that will extend beyond the currently funded programme. You can find out more and apply here.

Both roles are scheduled to close in the next few weeks and applications can be made online.
