We are a growing organisation with over 1500 members and 20 staff. Our main activities include delivering qualifications, conferences, publishing, technical guidance and policy advice. We also support those with communications and marketing.

It’s a truly exciting time to join our team, as we are working towards modernising our business, particularly in relation to our business systems, operational procedures and HR practices. The majority of our work is office-based, carried out with standard small business systems.

With the full support of our senior management team, you will have the chance to drive our productivity, introduce new technologies into the business and empower our people to work at their best. 

What’s more, we will support you to develop professionally, enabling you to build on your existing expertise during your contract.

The Role
