UKHSA - Assistant Business Development Manager

We're looking for three Assistant Business Development Managers to join our highly successful team, supporting the income generating activities of the UKHSA.

The Business Development Department supports achievement of UKHSA’s goals by helping win external funding for research, and commercializing services created through the agency’s wide-ranging scientific and public health expertise. In particular the department manages and exploits the agency’s strong Intellectual Property portfolio, realizing a financial return on the investment of public funds to generate high quality public health interventions and assets, and reducing the cost to the government of cutting-edge public health capabilities.

Our Assistant Business Development Managers (Assistant BDM) directly support commercial ventures targeting external revenue streams, from initial opportunity through to contract signature. This support includes providing appropriate advice to UKHSA project managers when they apply for research funding or pursue sales, by active review of terms and conditions related to funding bodies or any non-standard terms the client wishes to negotiate, ensuring the project leader and their team understand the potential impacts of contracted terms and means to mitigate them where risks are identified.

The role involves all aspects of developing business cases, supporting project managers to design and deliver their tender proposals, service or research offers, identifying and articulating the benefits to UKHSA for the proposed resource investment, through close liaison with the internal quality, regulatory and financial stakeholders to ensure all costs and factors have been included in the proposal.


All our staff are employed through the Civil Service by open competition. The Civil Service offers a broad range of career and employment opportunities and excellent employee benefits, all of which can be viewed on the Civil Service Jobs website, along with complete details of these vacancies.
