Business Intelligence Manager

The Faraday Institution is the UK’s independent electrochemical energy storage research institute. Our goal is to make the UK a world leader in energy storage and to ensure the UK is well placed to take advantage of the future economic opportunities from this emerging technology.

The mission of the Business Intelligence Manager is to undertake research and analysis to develop a unique understanding of the development of battery related research and technology development across the world and use the gathered intelligence to support and advise FI activities.

Objectives and responsibilities of the role:
• Participate in and lead techno-economic studies to understand the business and economic opportunities emerging as part of the transition to an electrified economy and the actions needed to be taken to support the change (e.g. the policy or regulatory changes that might be required).
• Gather data, research and intelligence on developments in battery research, energy storage and the wider global battery market and understand the implications and relevance for the FI research programme, UK competitiveness and the wider UK economy.
• Develop a strong network of worldwide connections to keep abreast of the latest developments in the battery market, from public and non-public sources, providing input to the FI team on industry requirements and opportunities.
• Use gathered data, research and intelligence to support the FI Head of Economics and Market Insights and the Head of Technology Transfer, including preparing concise market, economic and technology briefings for the Faraday Insights publication aimed at building knowledge across industry, academia and government.
• Work with other parts of the Faraday Battery Challenge to understand the current and potential future UK battery value chain and use this combined with wider market knowledge to identify potential technology exploitation partners.
• Use gathered intelligence to support the FI CEO and Heads through briefings and preparation of speeches and presentations and, in particular, to inform the direction of the FI research agenda and programme.

The Business Intelligence Manager will report to the Head of Economics and Market Insights and will work closely with the Head of Technology Transfer and the CEO.
The role will involve regular interactions with external stakeholders such as leading UK policy groups, UK government and the wider public sector, CTO of companies in the sector (in the UK but also worldwide, especially in Asia), consulting firms/ financial advisors with a strong energy analytics perspective, international research centres, think tanks (especially in China, Korea, Japan, the US, and Germany) and commercial attaches in UK Embassies.
