Skills we recruit for
The growing commercial focus for many universities, inspired by the innovation emerging from the labs and incubators, is fuelling a change in demand for the skills required.
While nothing will replace the value of educational leadership, we are finding a growing requirement for leaders who have the ability to deliver commercial success while guiding the academic development required in very different times.
With the University of Edinburgh at the forefront of data-driven innovation through the Bayes Centre, and the University of St Andrews now investing in startups through their STAAR project, it is clear our educational establishments are a critical element of Scotland's entrepreneurial landscape.
