Who are Wessex Institute?

Wessex Institute is home to the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre (NETSCC), and is responsible for managing around £150m of new research funding each year, with an active portfolio of around £1bn. Funded by the Department of Health and Social Care, NETSCC manages six national and international research funding programmes on behalf of the NIHR. The NETSCC contract is the largest enterprise contract held by the University of Southampton and is administered by the Wessex Institute.

Why Wessex Institute?

The Wessex Institute is a large enterprise unit within the Faculty of Medicine (University of Southampton), and is focused on providing high quality, practice-based research evidence to support decision makers in health and social care. Our capabilities are broad, ranging from public/patient involvement in research, priority setting, research funding, managing the delivery of research, publishing and disseminating research findings. Wessex Institute offers excellent benefits including generous holidays, flexible working arrangements and the opportunity to develop your career in a professional and friendly working environment.

Equality, diversity and inclusion are fundamental to making Wessex Institute a vibrant, proud and successful organisation. We encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds, with the belief that excellence will be achieved through recognising the value of every individual. The University of Southampton is an institution in the top one percent of world universities and has an international reputation for research, teaching and enterprise activities.

Staff at the Wessex Institute are currently working remotely in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and it is likely that the successful candidate will also be required to. Once the threat from COVID-19 lessens and the Wessex Institute returns to its physical workplace, some remote and flexible working will be considered on an individual basis, depending on team roles, locations and logistics.
