The Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock (CIEL) is one of the UK’s 4 Agri-Tech Centres. Our purpose is to provide a single gateway for the support and delivery of industry-led innovative livestock research.
We’ve been doing this since 2016 working with partners in industry, universities and government.
Along with our sister Centres we are supporting the UK economy through the creation of new jobs, along with new technology, driving UK research innovation, ways of working and exports, and we are part of making sure that the UK agrifood sector is world-class.
Our work is centred to benefit the UK, but our people engage both nationally and internationally. We do this from our home in York where we have a small, passionate and committed team based at the Science Park next to the University.
We’re looking for someone to join our growing team in the role of Monitoring & Compliance Officer.
This is a key role for CIEL, focussed on supporting the delivery of projects and driving the quality of exploitation reporting with our university partners. These are the world class facilities that allow CIEL’s members and stakeholders to create a direct link between science and practice to enable broader, faster and deeper innovation uptake in the livestock sectors.
To do this role you need to be organised, self-directing, and very detail orientated. You’ll need strong interpersonal skills and the ability to be consistent and persistent while maintaining good relationships. You’ll have a solid understanding of project management techniques and, ideally, some science background or experience in agriculture. You’ll have a genuine curiosity about the work and a desire to know more.
CIEL is a small team with a wide reach. To be part of CIEL you will need to be someone who embraces change, enjoys being part of delivering on a nationally important agenda, is process orientated and loves being part of a busy and welcoming team.
