Job description

Hybrid working (with a baseline 2 days a week working from our office in London)

We are seeking four talented Programme Managers to work in the Research team. This will be a one-year fixed term contract. We welcome applications for part-time appointments too.

The role

As Programme Manager, you will help develop and deliver our rapidly growing portfolio of research programmes.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our Research team and make a real difference. The Academy’s Research programmes support excellent engineering and technology researchers, based in UK universities and institutions, working in partnership with the UK industry to drive innovation.

Your main role will be on a particular research grant scheme, but you will contribute to other programme activities as appropriate. We are looking for someone who can run both efficient application and selection processes for grant schemes and help build and maintain engagement with a community of awardees and experts. You will play an important role in making sure that grant recipients have a strong, beneficial relationship with the Academy, and each other.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for someone with broad knowledge of administration systems, procedures and processes, who is highly organised with excellent time management skills with the ability to work on your own initiative. You will have a commitment to diversity and inclusion as well as a conviction that listening to a diverse range of voices and stakeholders results in improved outcomes.

Who are we?

The Royal Academy of Engineering is harnessing the power of engineering to build a sustainable society and an inclusive economy that works for everyone. In collaboration with our Fellows and partners, we’re growing talent and developing skills for the future, driving innovation and building global partnerships, and influencing policy and engaging the public. Together we’re working to tackle the greatest challenges of our age.

With a diverse workforce and an inclusive and supportive culture, we look to attract candidates from wide and different backgrounds who have a passion for the role engineering plays in society. Our aim is to make the Academy the best place to work for the staff we have and those we seek to attract.

Why work for the Royal Academy of Engineering?

We’re looking for people who are driven to make the world a better place. If you’re passionate about what you do and want to work collaboratively with talented colleagues to make change happen now and for future generations, we want you to get in touch.

This is the perfect time to join us. We have a dynamic, visionary CEO, a strong leadership team and an ambitious and exciting strategy. The value we bring as experts in our field and change agents is highly recognised and makes the Academy a motivating place to be. Our work today builds on a long, proud history with a focused and ambitious future which we’d love you to be part of.

We are looking for talented people who want to make a difference, to join our team – is this you?
