As we are a professional membership organisation, you will benefit from having experience of working for a body like us, especially in science or engineering. An understanding or experience of charity governance will be useful too.
We have initiated an exciting project to update our website and database platforms so you will be accustomed to working with digital partners to deliver requirements on time and on budget.

You will thrive on managing multiple projects and priorities and be able to switch between the detail and big picture in an instant. You will be a great communicator.
We are a small team so you will also be happy to ‘muck in’ to keep things running smoothly.
Are you ready to help us put our ambitious plans into practise? Send us your CV and a brief cover letter. We will look at applications as we receive them.
