Currently counting 24 constituent members, The Northern Health Science Alliance Ltd, is a company limited by guarantee hosted by Newcastle University, and was established in 2012 as a front door to the North of England’s health research system, working towards building a healthier and wealthier region. As a partnership and company established by leading universities, NHS Hospital Trusts and Academic Health Science Networks across the North of England’s 16m population, the NHSA provides a portal to its internationally recognised health science excellence.
By bringing this alliance together, the national and international profile of the NHSA has increased considerably and our social media impact places our work at the very heart of regional, national and international discussion and debate.
This unique and diverse role requires you to work with our relevant networks and have an understanding of the different sectors the Alliance serves. Your core focus will be to maintain relationships with our constituent member institutions and organisations across the entire Northern region and to deliver relevant commercial engagement activity as part of a new three year programme funded by Research England, in collaboration with MedCity. You will need to successfully engage with a wide variety of commercial, academic and NHS stakeholders at a senior level, possess a sophisticated flair for influencing decision-making and negotiation and possess demonstrable ability to drive communications with these groups with particular responsibility for commercial engagement.
Whilst the successful candidate will have the title of ‘Industry Partnerships Manager’, we are looking for an ‘all-rounder’ who understands the necessity for teamwork and the importance of rolling up their sleeves to assist in all areas of our activity whenever they are needed. The day to day activity outlined in the job description provides more detail, and the successful candidate can expect their role to be diverse with no two days being the same.
