Opened in 2008, the University of Nottingham Innovation Park (UNIP) aims to provide innovative businesses with a close geographic and working relationship with University research, teaching and technical facilities. Having recently been awarded University Enterprise Zone status and currently developing a brand new technology business incubator on the site; UNIP is now entering an exciting new phase of development with an expanded remit.

Due to the impending retirement of the current role holder, the UNIP Board wishes to appoint an Operations Director to continue to develop and implement the UNIP strategy, and in so doing further strengthen its external reputation and relationships. The role holder would be expected to manage and deliver the forecast growth in UNIP’s activities, identifying new projects and tenants that will bring positive synergies and added value to the University.

UNIP is managed through a wholly owned subsidiary of the University, UNIP Management Ltd. Reporting to the Board Chair of UNIP Management Ltd. and linking closely to the University’s Business Engagement and Innovation Services (BEIS), the role holder will have direct responsibility for meeting financial performance targets, raising UNIP’s profile within the locality and nationally, and building effective links between UNIP’s clients and the wider University community.
