Job Vacancy: Project Leader – Innovation

21 December 2018

Medilink East Midlands Ltd is seeking to recruit an additional part-time Project Leader to a small team offering a range of support activities to life science companies across the East Midlands as part of our delivery of projects part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund. For further information regarding the current projects please click here to visit the page on our website.

Our team of Project Leaders have shared responsibility for covering the East Midlands region, but this new role will have a specific focus on the Leicester and Leicestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) region.

The Project Leader’s main role will be that of client engagement and management. Working with small to medium sized businesses (‘clients’) operating in, or looking to move into, the life science sector, you will analyse client needs around innovation, identify opportunities and enable connections with suitable expertise to help the development and introduction of innovative products, services or processes. As a Project Leader, you may also be required to take responsibility for the management of projects, as appropriate, including administration around reporting and producing financial claims for funding partners.

The suitable candidate will be a conscientious, results-orientated team player with a solid background in the life sciences sector, preferably with experience of developing new products or services, and able to establish valued professional relationships with clients.

The successful applicant will show commercial awareness, particularly with respect to the SME sector; be highly motivated; and have industry / sector experience and / or a life sciences related degree.

Experience of NHS / social services procurement processes is desirable; experience of working on publicly funded projects would be an advantage; experience of working with colleges and universities would be useful; but none are essential.

We expect this role to be primarily home based or operating from a satellite base at the Charnwood Campus, Loughborough; but attendance at Medilink’s offices in Nottingham will be required for team meetings and other business related activities, typically one day a week.

Salary: Pro rata £38,000-42,000
