EngineeringUK is a not-for-profit organisation that works to inspire tomorrow’s engineers and increase the talent pipeline into engineering through educational initiatives. We run two national educational programmes:
- The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fairs
- Tomorrow’s Engineers, a programme of coordinated schools outreach and careers inspiration which seeks to create the next generation of engineers.
These initiatives are underpinned by evaluation activities to assess the impact of their effectiveness, as well as wider research concerning the skills supply and demand in the engineering sector.
About this role
We are embarking on an exciting new strategic plan, with a core element of that plan to become the recognised, trusted voice and thought leader by government, employers and professional institutions on the engineering labour market, talent pipeline and best approaches to engage young people.
Reporting to the Head of Public Affairs and the Senior Research Analyst, you will work to raise the profile of EngineeringUK with politicians, policy-makers and other political stakeholders, and ensure that EngineeringUK’s research is complemented by and used to inform the external policy environment.
This is an exciting time for EngineeringUK and we’re looking for experienced, resourceful policy and public affairs professionals to join us as we develop our programme of work. If you think your skills and experience are right for the Policy and Voice Manager role, we’d love to hear from you.
