The postholder will work as part of a team supporting a broad spectrum of activites across both the Trust, the University and potentially other strategic partners. In particular, activities will support the research ambitions of our major research infrastructure programmes (the NIHR Leeds in Vitro Diagnostic Co-operative, the NIHR Leeds Clinical Research Facility, the NIHR Leeds Biomedical Research Centre and the Nothern Pathology Imaging Co-operative), as well as a range of other research activities.

The successful candidate will need to have a customer-focused approach, a high standard of interpersonal skills, be a self-starter and have an entrepreneurial mindset. They will need to be able to work in a matrix management environment across multiple teams to help deliver the Trust's ambitious strategic targets for Research and Innovation.
