Careers

We’re hiring!

 

Since 2010, Vertigo Ventures has been working with organisations to identify, capture and report the impact of their research projects to funders to secure funding. Vertigo Ventures worked with leading UK universities to prepare for the UK REF 2014 and the Australia team has been working with Australian and New Zealand researchers on engagement. 

 

In 2014, Vertigo Ventures launched VV-Impact Tracker with UK institutions to help researchers and higher education institutions to identify, store, validate, and organise impact information and evidence from funded and non-funded projects. VV-Impact Tracker provides a taxonomy and systematic workflow that contextualises research project information with impact data to provide a compelling narrative about research use, reach and significance, and produces clean data for reporting purposes.

 

Through our online tool we have been able to create a fast growing technology company which is expanding in the UK and abroad.

Our training and consultancy services continue to build on our solid foundations as impact experts first and foremost and support our clients to understand how best to measure impact, and identify their achievements to date.
