As we support researchers from Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington to turn their ideas into impact, we call on a wide range of skills and expertise from our staff.

Wellington UniVentures employs people who have a variety of academic, professional and life experiences, from recent graduates through to individuals with deep industry experience. We work across many different sectors here at the University and provide commercialisation services and advice to external institutions as well.

If we have any roles currently advertised, you'll be able to find them below, and you can contact our General Manager Marketing and Engagement, Beckie Duffy, for further information.    


Our staff have a passion for making a difference and creating impact in what they do. When we employ new staff we are always looking for people who feel this passion too and want to drive research opportunities forward.

Stories from our people

Knowledge is power

"Wellington UniVentures is such a dynamic, interesting place to work—I really enjoy the fact that I'm working alongside team members who know so much about so many different things, and that they're generous in sharing that knowledge with me.

There's a real sense of purpose to what we do here. We're trusted to do what needs to be done, and what we do is valued and appreciated which makes for a great work environment.

It's also a huge bonus to be part of the wider University ecosystem and be able to attend lectures that relate to the research topics that I'm screening at the time—and there's the opportunity for further study right on the doorstep!
