Having reviewed the site we hope that you have enough information about the roles and what Innovate UK can offer you to encourage you to make an application.

Your application will be acknowledged and you will be informed of the status of your application at each stage of the process. Should your skills and experience be considered suitable to the position you have applied for then you will be invited to a preliminary interview. This will give you the opportunity to discuss your skills and experience and how these are related to the position that you have applied for. You will also have the opportunity to talk about Innovate UK and the opportunities it can offer.

If you are successful at this stage you will then have the opportunity to attend an assessment centre. This will be an opportunity to demonstrate your skills using role play, a written exercise and cognitive testing. You will be notified of the details of your assessment when you are invited to attend. If successful at assessment centre, you will be invited to attend a final interview where you will be able to meet your potential manager and other team members.

Please bear in mind when making an application that we are seeking to appoint suitable applicants for these roles as soon as possible, and that other candidates for the same position may already be at assessment centre or interview stage. Therefore, early applications would be appreciated. We will endeavour to remove positions that have been filled from the website with immediate effect.

Reasonable expenses for travel to interview (within the UK) will be reimbursed.
