Job description

We are looking for a new member of our busy Communications and Engagement department, to promote our rapidly expanding programmes and policy work, proactively raising our profile with key opinion formers, policymakers, industry leaders, researchers, innovators and the public though both traditional and digital media outreach.

The Role

You will have excellent media contacts and a proven track record of placing exciting news stories in national media. Your work will also involve responding to government policy announcements, promoting world-leading innovations and profiling the inspiring engineers behind them, and drafting speeches, briefings and letters for key stakeholders. You will have experience of developing both short- and longer-term media strategies, and of developing and delivering PR campaigns in collaboration with digital specialists and subject matter experts. You will build and maintain good links with national, regional, trade and international print, online and broadcast media, as well as leading trade bodies. You will also be encouraged to attend high-profile events, work with our Fellows and programme awardees, giving you access to some of the most innovative thinkers and a real opportunity to impact on the Academy’s mission to build a sustainable society and an inclusive economy.

Experienced in press and media relations and adept at writing for a variety of purposes, from news releases to opinion editorial to website copy, you will be a creative communications practitioner with great news sense and a tenacious approach. You will also be skilled in evaluating media campaigns, interpreting complex scientific and technical stories and working collaboratively with a range of subject matter experts and other communications functions. An engineering or scientific background would be an advantage in this role. However, your initiative, drive and determination to transform our media profile is the key requirement.

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?
