Job description

We’re part of a global movement of over 60 Engineers Without Borders organisations and tens of thousands of committed individuals and organisations. Together, we are working to put global responsibility at the heart of engineering, to ensure a safe and just future for all. As a charity, we have long championed the need for engineers to understand the vital role that we all have to play in addressing the grand challenges facing society today.

In 2021, we refreshed our strategy, emphasising the need to put global responsibility at the heart of how all engineering is taught and practised. With a different approach, the engineering community has the power to rapidly transform our world for the better and ensure a safe and just future for all.

As society moves towards the deadline to meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we are striving to reach the tipping point for globally responsible engineering. We do this by inspiring, encouraging the engineering community to commit to global responsibility, upskilling, so that people are equipped to put purpose into practice; and driving change, collaborating with companies, universities and a wide variety of organisations to accelerate globally responsible engineering becoming mainstream.
