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 Research and Impact Manager, you will support the delivery of our research into key issues for the engineering and educational sector, such as the STEM skills shortage or gender underrepresentation within the engineering profession. You will also work on activities to evaluate EngineeringUK’s own programmes.
This is an exciting time for EngineeringUK and we’re looking for experienced, resourceful research professionals to join us as we develop our programme of work. If you think your skills and experience are right for the Research Officer role, we’d love to hear from you.
