Project Manager

Due to continued growth, our sustainable biotech client is seeking a Project Manager to join the commercial department. As their Project Manager, you will play a lead role in tracking grant-funded project deliverables, milestones and budgets in collaboration with other key departments.

This role will suit a candidate with grant management experience (particularly with Innovate UK) coupled with strong written and presentation skills - translating technical information into easy to understand information.

Project Manager responsibilities

  • Keep track of grant-funded project deliverables, milestones and budgets in collaboration with the project leads, finance team and external collaborators.
  • Prepare quarterly reports for primarily Innovate UK-funded projects.
  • Research grant opportunities that align with the wider business strategy, presenting to internal teams and seeking internal approval to progress with applications.
  • Once opportunities are approved, manage the grant application process by working with technical and commercial leads and grant-writing consultants to complete applications to a high standard.
  • Represent the company at external grant funding body events, often in partnership with our technical team.

Project Manager requirements

  • Current knowledge of major grant funding bodies - particularly Innovate UK.
  • Experience in managing science-related grant-funded projects, according to defined plans.
  • Experience in preparing reports targeted to funding bodies.
  • Project budget management experience.
  • Writing and coordinating grant applications.
  • Strong written and presentation skills - ability to translate technical information into easy-to-understand reports.
  • Self-start who is proactive and takes initiative.
