This has already seen Coventry University establish an exceptional portfolio of high-impact research, and, with a significant investment in research, we continue to gain momentum as a world-class, innovative University that is internationally regarded and ranked for its research.
Working within the Research Development Unit, the Research Development Executive is key to building research capacity and capability across the University within our Research Centres. This post offers an excellent opportunity to support a team of leading academics as well as to help shape, guide and establish Coventry University's exciting, fresh and new research direction.

The Centre for Business in Society is one of the main research hub for dedicated research staff and funded research projects in the Faculty of Business and Law at Coventry University. It is also home to half of the Faculty's PhD community and its DBA programme. CBiS is a vibrant and collegiate research community, occupying dedicated space in the Faculty's postgraduate and research building.
Through understanding the impact of organisations' activities, behaviours and policies, our research seeks to promote responsibility and to change behaviours for the benefit of economies and societies.
CBiS research teams are (a) examining sustainable production and ethical consumption; (b) searching for durable and inclusive economic growth and development models, promoting new partnerships between state, economy and society; (c) exploring at the national, organisational and individual level the economic and social impacts of the financial crisis and post-financialisation, especially for responsible personal finance and debt; and (d) addressing the implications of digital and big data for business and society, in particular the strategy, use, privacy and security of data in organisations and society.
