About the RSS  

The Royal Statistical Society (RSS) is a membership organisation dedicated to promoting the understanding and use of statistics for the public good.  We have over 10,000 members in the UK and around the world, including statistics researchers, data scientists, students, and teachers. 

One of our strategic priorities over the next two years is data science. We are working to develop the contribution of statistics to data science, and to expand the range of services we offer to our members who work as data scientists. 

To help deliver these plans, we are looking to recruit a project manager who can work with data science experts and external partners to scope, plan, and launch new programmes. 

Our staff team is highly motivated and has had recent success in delivering its strategy which has included growing our membership and volunteer base, better engaging our members through a wide range of opportunities and delivering a programme of public training courses.   Everyone in the team plays an important role in delivering all aspects of our members’ experiences and we have the enthusiasm, ambition, and drive to further improve and expand our relationships with existing and potential members and corporate partners. 

About you 
You are ideally in programme management or programme design role, looking for a dynamic position with room to develop and grow. You are a self-starter and have a desire to work collaboratively as well as managing your own workload.  You enjoy working with partners to design new programmes and have the determination and organisation to put them your designs into action. Whilst you will be an integral part of the membership team with some support of team administrators, you will often be working autonomously, including with senior stakeholders. 

Our ideal candidate will have a high degree of enthusiasm, initiative and judgement and an interest in the field of data science.
