Innovation Manager roles

We are always on the lookout for motivated, experienced and knowledgeable people to join our team.
Innovation Manager - Energy and Sustainability

Deadline: Monday 22nd March

Through an established and successful partnership with the Academic Health Science Network – North East and North Cumbria, we have identified a significant opportunity for innovation around energy, waste and wider sustainability issues faced by NHS trusts. The Innovation Manager role will work with NHS trusts to identify where the biggest issues lie and how innovation could lead to positive change. They will then work with regional businesses and social enterprises to develop and implement solutions. The outcome will be a reduced environmental impact from healthcare and a parallel economic impact through growth of local businesses.

Innovation SuperNetwork equality, diversity and inclusion policy

The Innovation SuperNetwork is committed to encouraging equality, diversity and inclusion among our workforce, and eliminating unlawful discrimination.

Our aim is for our workforce to be truly representative of all sections of society, and for each employee to feel respected and able to give their best. In delivering innovation and access to finance programmes, we are also committed against the discrimination of our clients, partners, stakeholders or the public.

In line with our own Diversity in Innovation programme, delivered to support companies in tackling structural bias in their own organisations, we commit to:

  • Ensuring we regularly review our own practice, ensuring unconscious bias does not impact on the company-wide decisions we make.
  • Acknowledging where we can do better, and striving to make a positive change to ensure diverse representation across the company and the programmes we deliver.

We also commit to honour the Armed Forces Covenant and support the Armed Forces Community
