Job description

We are seeking a talented Programme Officer to join our expanding Research team. We encourage a passionate individual who would like to work full-time or part-time to apply for this up to March 25, fixed term role with us.

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

The role

Your main role will be across the research grant schemes, contributing to programme activities according to the Academy’s business need. 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. You will play an important role in making sure that grant recipients have a strong, beneficial relationship with the Academy, and each other.

We have an inclusive and flexible approach to hybrid working based on trust and respecting individual differences.

Please indicate in your cover letter whether you are interested in a 0.8-1.0 FTE fixed term contract until March 2025.

Who are we?

Engineering matters. It shapes our everyday lives, from our ability to turn the lights on, have a hot shower and commute into work, to the mobile phones we rely on to keep connected. It also plays a vital role in addressing some of the biggest challenges facing society today, from climate change to global health pandemics and cyber threats.

The Royal Academy of Engineering is a charity that harnesses 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?
