Job description

The Royal Society’s mission is to recognise, promote and support excellence in science, and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity. Science is vital to many areas of government policy making and the Society seeks to ensure the government and the public have access to impartial and independent expert advice to inform debate and guide good decision making. The Royal Society provides independent, timely and authoritative scientific advice to UK, European and international decision makers. We champion the contribution that science and innovation can make to economic prosperity, quality of life and environmental sustainability; and we are a hub for debate about science, society and public policy. We are committed to ensuring everyone has the opportunity to appreciate the value of and engage with science through top quality education.

The Education and Skills Policy Team aims to achieve this through a programme of activity intended to address the following three priorities:

  1. To ensure that UK education maintains and grows the nation's status as a world-leading scientific nation.
  2. To ensure that the UK has a more equitable education system that advances academic achievement and technical expertise alongside developing the individual resilience and adaptability, to provide an educational foundation for all future citizens.
  3. To develop an education system that embeds within the experience of learners, the skills and knowledge that enable them to engage confidently and critically with science and how it affects people's lives.

The Society’s policy work is led by the science policy team, working closely with the Media Relations, Public Affairs, Public Engagement, International Affairs and Diversity & Industry Programme teams. Activities are undertaken by a team of Senior Policy Advisers and Policy Advisers who work across a range of themes and policy issues, according to priorities and their own expertise.

The Society’s partners include other academies, learned societies, funding agencies, government, industry, charitable bodies, business and the public sector.

With knowledge and a real enthusiasm for policy in the domains of education, skills or science, you will be responsible for leading and delivering programmes of work around education reform related to STEM. Working with a small and talented team of direct reports, you will be expected to develop research projects, produce external briefings, conceive and deliver round table events, workshops and other meetings as well as provide advice for senior management, Fellows and Council. You will enjoy exceptional visibility and variety. A creative thinker and effective problem solver, you will be adept at networking, motivating colleagues, building interdisciplinary relationships and working with committees. It is essential that you are a fluent and persuasive writer and a good communicator, and ideally have experience analysing or commissioning analysis of data on any of education/skills/scientific systems.
