New job opportunity: Senior Business Innovation Manager

Are you dynamic, enthusiastic, and creative with excellent vision, proven leadership, and delivery skills? If so, the Digital Health & Care Innovation Centre is recruiting a Senior Business Innovation Manager to join our team!

The Digital Health and Care Innovation Centre (DHI) is a national organisation which brings together Scotland's public sector, academia, charities and industry to create new ways of working, and to co-design digital solutions to some of the country's biggest health and care challenges.

Our unique needs-led approach is an essential link between the Scottish Government’s national priorities and the wealth of talent across different sectors and communities in Scotland. We create opportunities for innovators, entrepreneurs and enterprises to develop scalable, and commercially viable solutions for use across Scotland and for export to other markets. We help position Scotland at the forefront of the growing global digital health and care economy through developing the right workforce, skills, infrastructure, products and policies to attract investment and new jobs.

DHI is hosted by the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow and we are looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic and creative Senior Business Innovation Manager with excellent vision, proven leadership and delivery skills.

DHI is seeking candidates who are highly motivated and experienced in making change happen and driving forward innovation programmes. The successful candidate will be responsible for establishing, developing and the ongoing management of key commercial stakeholder relationships and developing a portfolio of digital innovation opportunities.

This senior business innovation role is initially funded for 2 years, to support the current DHI 2.0 Business Plan ambitions. The post will directly report to the DHI Chief Executive Officer and be an active member of the DHI Senior Management Team.

The formal base for the post will be the DHI HQ in Glasgow, but DHI operate a blended working environment where working from home, traveling to other parts of Scotland, UK, and internationally, are part of our operating model.

Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Moira Mackenzie, Deputy Chief Executive/Director of Innovation.
