Associate Consultant Ref:3005936


Spin Up Science Ltd ( was incorporated in 2018 to support entrepreneurial scientists, inspire future innovators and establish the UK as a centre for technology commercialisation. We work to connect scientists and engineers across the UK’s academic institutions with local industry through training programs, invited talks, technology showcases, and hands-on opportunities to work alongside enterprises to foster local scientific innovation ecosystems.

The Associate Consultant will support incubated businesses by carrying out market research to help clients gain a greater understanding of the commercial opportunity within their research. They will also help direct the future growth of the business through researching relevant events, grants and funding opportunities. The role will involve building strong relationships with existing clients, as well as the opportunity to develop our client list by finding prospective clients to onboard.

The role will be remote with the opportunity to meet with the Liverpool based team members regularly, and will also include regular communication with the wider UK team through digital communication (Zoom meetings and Slack). There will also be opportunities for the whole Spin Up Science team to get together face-to-face by holding meetings in either Liverpool or at our head office in Bristol.
