The University of Sussex Business School seeks to recruit a Research Impact Coordinator who will be charged with continuing the preparation of the School’s impact case portfolio for the upcoming REF 2021 exercise. The REF is an exercise of critical importance for the University’s academic reputation and financial position, and the impact case studies are worth 25% of the total outcome for the submission.
The post holder will work closely with the DRaKE, Research Manager, Research Communications Manager and academic faculty to prepare the School’s impact case portfolio for REF2021. This will include: guiding, writing and refining REF impact case studies; ensuring eligibility and compliance with REF guidance; facilitating evidence gathering and collation; leading the School’s participation in the University’s impact review processes and managing the submission of impact case studies to the REF.
Working closely with the Research Communications Manager, the post holder will also work more broadly to maximise and communicate impact generation of research across the School. This will include monitoring policy processes to identify engagement opportunities and providing high-level communications support to facilitate engagement and knowledge exchange with external research audiences.
The successful candidate will have excellent professional skills in communication and editorial work, with a track record of producing effective material for both generalist and specialist audiences, and with a detailed understanding of REF policy.
