Organisation Unit: n/a
Department: VC Directorate
Location: City Campus
Salary: £23,500 p.a.
A challenging and exciting opportunity exists for two Graduate Enterprise Developers within the Directorate of the University. Working as part of a small team alongside other University stakeholders and directly with the Vice-Chancellor, the main purpose of this role is to seek out, explore and propose enterprise development and innovation opportunities for the University across a range of areas.
We are looking for someone who is drawn to challenge, with an inquisitive, agile and tenacious mindset. The successful candidate will enjoy working in unfamiliar contexts, be highly motivated and a self-starter. Projects will vary in scope and scale: some will necessarily focus on developments that respond to specific University needs within given contexts, however you will also have wide latitude to identify areas and pursue emerging ideas. You will be expected to generate and identify opportunities in relation to enterprise developments that are not bound by convention, and propose a range of novel solutions for review by the University in order to improve effectiveness of practices and activities or that could promote to new areas for consideration. This means that you will also need to have strong communication and presentation skills.
Although based on the City site, the scope of work is likely to cover all parts of university life and all academic subject areas, and may entail some activities away from the University, for example visiting other universities on both a local and regional scale.
As part of this role you will also be joining NTU’s Graduate Development Programme, designed to provide you with an extensive range of development opportunities and lay the foundations to your future career. The programme is personalised and tailored to your skill set, to help you:
- improve your workplace skills
- develop your leadership skills
- build your confidence
- gain important employment experience.
Please refer to the job description and person specification attached to this page when completing your application to demonstrate how you meet the requirements for the role.
All shortlisted candidates will be invited to an assessment centre.
This is a Graduate Development Programme role available for a fixed term of 13 months. Applicants need to be current NTU students in their final year or have graduated from NTU within the last two years at the time of applying.
Applications for the year 2019/20 are now closed and will reopen in winter 2020.
