UKRI Pay Band E – £39,748 to £44,166 (depending on qualifications and experience)

37 hours a week (Flexible working options may be available (including a small amount of flexible hybrid/remote working which BGS is currently trialling)


The British Geological Survey (BGS) is an applied geoscience research centre that belongs to UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and is affiliated to the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). It is a world leading geological survey whose core mission is to inform government of science related to the subsurface and to undertake applied research to solve earth and environmental issues, both in the UK and globally. It is funded directly by UKRI, as well as through research grants and private sector contracts.

You will take ownership of identifying and publicising relevant and creative grant and European opportunities to BGS, encouraging BGS scientists to apply for grant-funded research and work with BGS staff and scientists to compile excellent applications to UK and International science funders.

You will act as the BGS expert in all grant application systems and provide advice and support on application submission processes (e.g. supporting staff and scientists using the Je-S system and the Participants portal).

You will also maintain a comprehensive record of all grants submitted and those funded using the BGS grants database and you will also work closely with the UKRI and NERC Centre Grants Teams.

Qualified to degree level or with equivalent work experience, you should have relevant grant management experience and a proven track record in developing grant proposals and helping secure grant-based income.

You will need to build a wide knowledge of the services and data provided by BGS and having knowledge of the geosciences would be an advantage.

In addition, you will have evidence of effective communication skills as the role will require you to communicate BGS’s science and information to a wide range of collaborators.

The role is very outward facing and highly visible and you will be able to travel off-site regularly and abroad occasionally.
