VP Commercialisation (Defence & Security)

Circa £100,000 + 20% Bonus + Benefits

Location: Hybrid Home Working, Porton Down, Wiltshire

Ploughshare converts technology research crafted by government organisations into applications that benefit both humanity and our economy. We review a wide variety of technologies from the fields in which our clients operate, and we need to predict and respond in those fast-moving markets with speed and agility. We’re an established, small, close-knit team with big ambitions and are now looking for a Vice President for Commercialisation to lead our Defence and Security business unit.

Covering everything from laser, photonics and radiation to passive radar decoys, fragmentation pattern control, virtual reality technologies and drone entanglement, to utilising miniaturised 2G-5G antenna solutions for applications from body worn communications to autonomous vehicles. We’re on an exciting journey to expand our reach across government, can you help drive us there?

With innovation at the heart of everything we do, we recognise the importance of diversity and inclusion to achieve innovation excellence. We are committed to building an inclusive working environment in which every employee fulfils their potential and maximises their contribution.

We want you to feel empowered to bring your passion for collaborating with many of Britain’s best technologists and futurists, along with your extensive knowledge and skills, to help turn their discoveries into commercial success stories.

Have you got the ambition, commercial aptitude, and creative flair to both develop effective relationships across the spectrum of industry, academia, government departments and not-for profit sector and be a conduit between the UK scientific community and the exciting entrepreneurial sphere?

Candidates will be experienced commercial leaders from within the Defence ecosystem having had exposure to bringing cutting-edge technologies to an international market. They will have experience of international contractual negotiations.  Ideally with an understanding of the commercialisation process and IP rights.

This is a high profile and rewarding challenge for the individual that wants to make a real difference in making innovations into reality.
