This role will be based on the university campus with scope for it to be undertaken in a hybrid manner.   We are also open to discussing flexible working arrangements.

Are you an influencer, skilled in managing relationships and communicating with a wide and varied audience?  Do you have financial and people management experience? 

The Leeds Academic Health Partnership is one of the largest of its kind in the UK, bringing together academia, health, care, industry and third sectors.

As our Business Manager, you will be responsible for the full portfolio of business support functions across the Partnership. You will manage our governance, finance, team human resources, office space, internal policy making and audits, staff training and development, and asset and risk management. You will play a key part in driving the Partnership forward, supporting the Partnership Director to achieve the LAHP’s strategic objectives.
