Innovate UK Executive Chair

UK Research and Innovation


This is an exciting moment for an inspirational leader to join Innovate UK and drive productivity and sustainable growth throughout the UK.

As the UK’s national innovation agency, Innovate UK has a central role in delivering growth through business-led innovation. If anyone is thinking of starting, growing or investing in an innovation or technology-centred business, we want them to do it in the UK because the UK offers the best possible place to make their vision happen.

As the Executive Chair – effectively the CEO - of Innovate UK you will draw on the UK’s globally recognised strengths in early-stage research; you will work with UKRI’s research councils, other public sector bodies, and businesses up and down the UK to unleash innovation and productivity across our economy and society. You will develop and deliver strategies for accelerating corporate R&D investment while scaling the UK’s most exciting and investable research and tech startups.
