Research Consulting is hiring!

By Rob Johnson 09/12/2020

I’m delighted to announce that we’re looking for a new Principal Consultant to join Research Consulting.

We’re casting a wide net in recruiting for this role, and we believe it will appeal to candidates from a wide variety of backgrounds. Existing knowledge of the higher education or research landscape is a must, but this may have been gained through any number of routes. We anticipate that some candidates will have past experience of working in a university, either in academic or professional roles, for example. However, we are equally interested to hear from those with a track record in scholarly publishing, the health sector, research funding and policy, not-for-profits, consultancy and more.

The successful candidate will be a senior member of our team, taking a lead role in the design and delivery of consultancy projects, managing client relationships, and contributing to the company’s business strategy and brand reputation.  They will also need to be comfortable preparing high-quality written reports (and able to evidence this with examples!), presenting at conferences, and writing thought leadership pieces to position the business as an authority within the field. A track record of managing and mentoring teams to deliver work at pace is also expected.

Just as importantly, however, we are seeking someone who shares our values of connection, quality, integrity and trust, and is looking to play an active part within the research and scholarly communication ecosystem. We encourage applications from a diverse talent pool and particularly welcome female applicants for this role.

In return we offer the opportunity to work as part of a small, close-knit team, advising some of the key actors within the UK and international research communities on strategy, policy, and operational performance.
