Become part of the Team
Are you a technologist looking for a role beyond the lab/workshop?
Do you enjoy immersing yourself in technology, but want a career that rewards breadth of interest as opposed to depth?
Do you want to work across multiple industry sectors such as human health, transport, communications and FMCG?
The Intellectual Property and Technology Innovation Management team (IPTIM) group focuses on helping clients make the right choices about technology and its implementation by providing in depth analysis and consultation on:
  • Technology landscaping
  • Intellectual property and regulation
  • Commercial and market analysis
  • Process development and implementation
  • Road mapping the product development process

The IPTIM acts as an innovation broker, helping companies understand emerging technologies and markets, linking them to academic and industry insights, and ultimately bringing them together to form a road map for success. This is truly a varied and broad role, where consultants can work across a wide range of industry sectors and problem spaces.

Job Requirements

What we’re looking for
We are looking for innovative and entrepreneurially-spirited technologists, who have backgrounds in subjects such as life sciences, engineering, computer/data science or similar. You should have strong skills in data collation, analysis, reporting and be hungry to use this skill set out of the classical research and laboratory setting. You will have a strong interest in commercialisation of technology and enjoy presenting and sharing your ideas with others. Your qualifications will have given you a deep understanding of a specific technical niche, but your nature is to want to broaden this area of expertise.
You will be used to working to challenging deadlines and be able to manage your time and stakeholder’s expectations; ultimately thriving in a fast-paced environment with plenty of variety.
Job Requirements
Essential Requirements:
  • BSc/BEng or higher degree (Masters/PhD) in technical subject matter
  • Strong analytical, problem solving and report writing capability
  • Natural flair for presenting data and communication in general
  • Customer focus, with a drive to excel and deliver great results
  • Interest and ability to understand complex technologies across a diverse range of sectors

Desirable Skills:
  • Experience in inventions and commercialisation/tech transfer
  • Experience market research around technology

This role would suit a scientist/engineer/technologist who feels that a career in pure R&D does not play to their strengths; who loves technology and its commercialisation.
