The University of Warwick is looking for an outstanding leader who blends exceptional commercial acumen with strong entrepreneurial vision.

Reporting directly to Warwick’s Registrar, you’ll be a key member of the senior management team. You’ll drive and deliver Warwick’s innovation agenda, enabling a coherent and successful strategy that maximises the University’s inventiveness and energy.

Your role will focus on developing and promoting innovation through enhanced support for new ventures and spinouts that emerge from research, student and local partnership activities. You’ll bring together existing teams to strengthen Warwick’s offer and ensure that the University’s culture enables innovation, enhances our reputation and creates new opportunities for our community.

Those teams will include Warwick Ventures, elements of the University of Warwick Science Park, Enterprise at Warwick, and an Innovation Support pilot which is currently based within Warwick’s IT Services group.

The Director of Innovation role is particularly exciting because Warwick has consistently prided itself on being innovative and entrepreneurial. Born out of boldness, imagination and collaboration between the city of Coventry and the county of Warwickshire, Warwick has been forward-focused since day one.

Significant capital investment continues to strengthen the University’s campus infrastructure, enabling opportunities for strong industrial partnerships, as well as the continued growth and development of subsidiary businesses.

The University is being supported by executive search agency Mallory Partners who will provide a full candidate specification. Applications should include a full CV and covering letter.
