GOTT: Senior Manager, Capability and Delivery Partnerships, Tech Transfer Strategic Partnerships- Grade 6

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: GSE Opportunities
Are you interested in a stretching and fast-faced role helping to deliver on the government's priority to become a science superpower? Would you like to play a key role in building partnerships with public sector organisations and supporting procurement processes for new products and services? If so, this opportunity could be perfect for you!

The UK’s public sector is a thriving source of innovation, and BEIS has recently established a new unit – the Government Office for Tech Transfer (GOTT) – which will support the development and exploitation of public sector knowledge assets (KAs).

KAs are non-physical assets such as R&D outputs from innovation, skills, know-how, and data. These are key elements of a comprehensive 2021 report (“Getting Smarter: a strategy for knowledge and innovation assets in the public sector”), and are also part of a major HMG priority: to support productivity and bring UK inventions into the economy.

GOTT has been set up to deliver a step change in the management of KAs by providing specialist support to central government departments and their arm’s length bodies. Current stakeholder guidance on managing and exploiting KAs is summarised in the Rose Book, which the team published in late 2021 and is available on GOV.UK

GOTT is a new directorate within BEIS, based in the Science, Innovation and Growth group and led by our CEO, Alison Campbell. We value diverse experiences and skills within our team – these are necessary to deliver our ambitious agenda and they make GOTT an interesting, innovative, and exciting place to work.

We are recruiting a Grade 7 who will programme manage the unit’s Capability and Delivery Partnerships workstreams; in particular, overseeing the unit's cross-cutting procurement activity, including the development of high-quality procurement specifications, and building effective relationships with key delivery partners, working closely with colleagues across GOTT and with Commercial specialists.

Person specification

As part of a small new Directorate, the Capability and Delivery Partnerships role will help to drive our objectives forward by supporting our service delivery offer, developing commercial relationships with suppliers, and building partnerships with a range of key stakeholders who will support delivery across aspects of GOTT's strategic plan.
Vacancy is open to existing civil servants only.
