The British Embassy in Mexico City is looking for a Locally-Engaged B3 (L) Innovation and Research Fund Officer to support the UK Government’s (HMG) work on Prosperity through managing a suite of projects under our large Innovation and Research fund.

The United Kingdom’s Prosperity Agenda and the Innovation and Research Fund

Prosperity is one of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s three Foreign Policy Priorities under which we actively seek to create the conditions for global growth. We are hoping to open up and develop new markets to deliver a sustainable future as well as to create opportunities for British business. Fostering innovation and research collaboration within both the UK and Mexican economies is key to this. Education and innovation are important drivers of growth, particularly as they support the development of more efficient, competitive and skilled economies. To demonstrate strong UK commitment to this taking this agenda forward with Mexico, HMG has announced an additional £4 million of funding per annum for the next three years to be spent on Innovation and Research collaboration with Mexico. This is truly a partnership – every British pound must be at least matched by Mexican funding, and the priority areas of the fund will be driven by Mexican development needs.

The Job

The successful candidate will be key to the operational development and delivery of a specific portfolio of activities under the Fund, based on HMG’s strategic objectives and Mexican priorities, in conjunction with Mexican and UK stakeholders. He/she will develop a network of key Mexican and UK stakeholders relevant to each project being delivered, to ensure projects supporting HMG objectives are delivered on time, on budget, and are properly accounted for. He/she will develop and employ policy expertise on the programmes delivered, providing regular reporting on the progress and policy impact of each project, to inform the broader reporting and analysis provided by the Head of Team.

  • Have project management experience (essential);
  • Have experience of research or innovation issues (desirable);
  • Be able to deliver results with a strong level of attention to detail and clear accountability;

  • Have strong networking and working with others skills (essential) - the role requires an ability to deliver the results needed through other organisations, such as Mexican partners or implementing bodies; and
  • Be resilient and resourceful – the exact mechanisms for managing the fund are still being worked out, but the aim is to deliver a meaningful and successful range of projects even in the fund’s first year of operation.

You should have at least 3 years’ work experience in a similar or related working environment.

Languages

Good communication skills in both written and spoken English and Spanish, are essential – you will need to be comfortable communicating complex ideas to a wide range of stakeholders in both countries.

Benefits:
