You could be helping companies adapt to industry disruption from new technologies; helping them find new markets and new ways to monetize their inventions; or helping them find the right strategy to fuel their innovation of new products.

Essential skills and attributes:

  • Full existing right to work in the UK without restriction, time limit, or sponsorship

This is a great chance to join a highly innovative company with a great culture. Many of the projects they work on are highly beneficial, and they value both ethical considerations and employee wellbeing.
