Due to continued investment within our Research Management teams we are looking to recruit two Assistant Research Managers to join our teams within our National Institute of Health and Care Research (NIHR) co-ordinating centre in Southampton.

Who are we?

The NIHR funds, enables, and delivers world-leading health and social care research that improves people's health and wellbeing and promotes economic growth. Our research helps turn discoveries into new or improved treatments, diagnostics, medical technologies, and services. It provides those working in the NHS, public health, global health, and social care with the evidence they need to better support patients, the public and people who need care.

What will you be doing?

You will work closely with colleagues within part of the research management lifecycle, to ensure the delivery of defined areas of work. You will:

  • support the high-quality delivery, and continuous improvement, of a specified part of the research management lifecycle.
  • advise internal and external customers on specialist defined procedures and processes.
  • oversee the administrative processes including supervising the work of administrators, organising events, and attending meetings.
  • act as an expert on relevant systems, keeping them updated and ensuring the information is of a high quality.
  • Who are we looking for?

    Our ideal candidate will be hard-working, dedicated, and flexible in their approach to work. Some of the key skills that are required to be successful in this role are:

  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills with a wide range of stakeholders
  • Ability to accurately interpret and analyse complex information and present in a clear and concise format.
  • Ability to offer proactive guidance and advice to internal and external customers, whilst dealing with confidential information in a sensitive manner
  • Able to effectively allocate work to staff, check work, and to motivate and train staff as required.
  • Ability to successfully plan and prioritise your own workload.
  • To have a good understanding of the health and care research landscape
  • What can we offer you?

As well as a generous benefits package (full details can be found here!), as an organisation we prioritise your wellbeing as reflected in our award as Top Medium Employer in the Mind Workplace Wellbeing awards, achieving Gold for the fourth year in a row!

    Our hybrid working approach helps you with your work life balance and offers you the chance to split your time between office and home working. We strive for cohesive and collaborative teams so our expectation is you spend around 20% of your time in the office. We also value flexibility and may accommodate part-time arrangements up to 28 hours.
