Board member

Closing date: Apr 9, 2021

EngineeringUK is looking for 3 new Members of the Board of Trustees to help us achieve our ambition to inform and inspire young people and grow the number and diversity of tomorrow’s engineers. We are looking for passionate and committed individuals with an interest and expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  • Secondary/further education
  • SME/entrepreneurship of a technology or engineering company
  • Finance experience (CFO)
  • CMO experience to include customer and market insight and segmentation and social impact assessment (Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning) or research and analysis, ideally bringing an external perspective on engineering as a career/sector.
  • Expertise in current perceptions of young people including through lived experience, relevant working experience or both.

EngineeringUK’s Board provides governance oversight and direction to the charity, alongside support and constructive challenge. As a Board member you will be part of the drive to increase the number and diversity of young people choosing academic and vocational pathways into engineering, a varied, stimulating and valuable career that’s at the heart of the UK leading in innovation, addressing Net Zero and “building back better”. You’ll be part of an organisation that works in partnership and aims to grow the collective impact of work across the sector to help young people understand what engineering is, how to get into it, and be motivated and able to access the educational and training opportunities on the way.

You’ll be an effective communicator, able to influence and network and be committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. Board meetings take place 4 times a year and had previously been held in central London but may be a blend of in person and virtual meetings in the future. Board members are encouraged to contribute more widely where possible, including on formal and informal sub-committees or in ad-hoc discussions relating to specific initiatives.

Role

We are committed to ensuring that equality, diversity and inclusion is at the heart of what we do. In order to be successful in growing and diversifying the talent pool into engineering, we recognise the need for our Board and wider team to reflect a diverse range of people and views. We encourage applications from a diverse range of candidates.

Business Development Executive

Closing date: Apr 16, 2021

Salary £28,000 to £35,000

The support of companies and stakeholders is vital to the success of EngineeringUK, both in terms of funding our key programmes, like the nationally recognised Big Bang Programme, as well as participating in the EngineeringUK Skills Partnership, through our Corporate Membership programme, which provides members with access to a network with a shared belief the UK needs more, and more diverse engineers and that a concerted, informed collective effort can make that happen.

EngineeringUK has built a credible and ongoing relationship with many leading businesses in the manufacturing, engineering and technology sectors, with many major companies in the Aerospace, Engineering and Energy sectors supporting us.  We need to build on this, encouraging more companies to become involved in our work, with particular focus on growing support from sectors including: Digital, Pharmaceutical, Sport, Telecommunications, Healthcare, Computer Gaming and Food & Drink; all of which need science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) skills.

Reporting to the Head of Business Development, you will research various market sectors, identifying market trends, key companies and identify the most appropriate department/person to engage with to promote EngineeringUK programmes.

EngineeringUK is based at 10 Lower Thames Street, London EC3R 6EN though all staff are currently working from home in line with government guidelines and we are likely to adopt a blend of home and office-based work in the future. The role is likely to include occasional travel around the UK.

Evaluation Manager

Closing date: Apr 26, 2021

Salary £40,000 to £45,000 depending on experience
12 months fixed-term contract, with possibility of extension

Full-time role (35 hours/week)

At EngineeringUK we use evidence to make a real difference. Through research insight, we work to improve the impact of 150 organisations, as well as our own, in making a positive difference to young people’s lives and securing the diverse engineering workforce the UK needs to thrive. This is an exciting opportunity to manage our evaluation programme and shape how we use it to inform our own and others’ practice.


You will be the operational lead on:

  • managing evaluation of our educational programmes, assessing their impact with an emphasis on groups historically underrepresented in the engineering profession
  • working with colleagues to embed learnings from evaluation findings into our future activities and the wider evidence base on the impact of engineering outreach activity
  • developing advice and guidance on evaluation and impact measurement to support the engineering outreach community in more systemically and robustly evaluating their activity

You will think critically about the evidence required to meaningfully examine the impact of STEM outreach activities across a complex landscape, manage the practicalities and logistics of collecting/analysing these data, and report findings to internal and external stakeholders. We are therefore looking for an experienced monitoring and evaluation professional.


You will report to the Research and Impact Manager and be based at the EngineeringUK offices at 10 Lower Thames Street, London EC3R 6EN with occasional travel in the UK, though all staff are currently working from home in line with government guidelines.
