The importance of creating positive change in the world is evidenced in The Bartlett’s commitment to build a better future. At this important juncture in the Faculty, we are recruiting for a key enabling role that contributes to our vision for an equitable and inclusive environment for staff and students.  

The Faculty Impact Lead provides intellectual leadership and critical reflection within the space of impact. This includes contributing to and leading conversations about how our staff and students can best create positive change while developing their careers. 

Working with the Faculty Impact Manager, the postholder will continue these conversations through the 'Thinking Impact' event series: a forum for debate about impact across various research and teaching contexts. The postholder will also continue work on the 'Bartlett Manual of Impact' and contribute to the growing public and community engagement network, the 'Bartlett Community of Engagers'. 

Professor Christoph Lindner, Dean of the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, thanks the outgoing role holder, Dr Vedran Zerjav, Associate Professor of Infrastructure Project Management at The Bartlett School for Sustainable Construction, for his contribution to the Faculty's impact development:  

"Vedran has provided excellent thought-leadership in his work as Faculty Impact Lead, using his depth of academic and professional experience to provide direction for the Faculty in this vital area. His impressive work with the Faculty Impact Manager in developing the fora for debating and reimagining the 'impact agenda', networking with impact-related colleagues around the world, and beginning the development of the 'Bartlett Manual of Impact' will ensure that the next role holder has a strong legacy on which to build. We thank Vedran for his intellectual rigour, creativity, and clear passion for impact as he moves on to his next role as Professor in Project Management at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

The appointment will commence from mid-October 2022, or as soon as possible thereafter, for a term of 3 years. The time commitment for this enabling role is anticipated to be around 0.1 FTE (approximately half a day per week).
