Who is Staffordshire University?   

We are the Connected University with 100 years of experience and ambition in becoming the UK’s foremost digital Institution. Our main campus is located in Stoke on Trent alongside our Centres of Excellence in Healthcare Education located in Stafford and Shrewsbury. Staffordshire University London’s Digital Institute is our first campus outside the Midlands. 

With more than 10,000 Full Time Undergraduate and Postgraduate students on campus, we continue to drive innovation and change, aiming to positively disrupt our sector. For our University, it is about so much more than the numbers. In fact, if there’s one thing that sets us apart, it’s our people who are all #ProudToBeStaffs. Every one of our employees goes above and beyond to deliver on our connected mission, responding to the needs of our students, academic partners, businesses and society.   

Over the past 5 years, we have transformed ourselves into a Gold standard provider of teaching and learning, gaining historically high positions in the UK league tables. With digital skills being at our core, we strive for diversity in all its forms and play an important role in our local communities and regional economies. 

About the role 

Research excellence is at the heart of Staffordshire University, central to the vision and strategy of being the Connected University. In our Strategic Plan, Innovative and Applied Learning, Connecting Communities, and our Talented People are all underpinned by research excellence. Our research supports the curriculum: contributing to a positive student experience and bringing income to our University, funding research work and impacting positively upon student recruitment. This in turn grows the reputation of both our University as an organisation to collaborate with and the region as a vibrant place to study and work.  

Our long-term aim is to be a leading UK Modern University for applied research and its impact. We are uniquely placed, in an industrial region located between the Northern Powerhouse and the heart of the Midlands Engine, to make a substantial contribution to the regional economy and wider society as an intellectual hub and an anchor institution. We work collaboratively and in an inter-disciplinary manner to provide imaginative and sustainable solutions to real-world issues, and to maximise the applied funding opportunities. 

We are seeking a Project and Portfolio Coordinator to work within the Project Delivery Team to provide administrative support for a designated portfolio of projects, to ensure delivery within timelines and to budget. In addition, you will be an active member of the Research Innovation and Impact Services visibility and engagement team, supporting the departments communications and engagement activity with both our internal and external stakeholders.
