Come and work for us…

man with magnifier shutterstock_106756703The Engineering Professors’ Council (EPC) is looking for its next Executive Director.  Following a highly successful four years for the Council, our Executive Director, Susan Kay, is moving on to take up a senior position with a national research charity.

With 82 UK institutional members comprising more than 6,000 academics across all the engineering disciplines, the EPC is the “voice” of engineering in UK higher education.

With the outcome of the consultation on the Higher Education Green Paper on the horizon and huge changes to the research, learning and teaching environment, this is a fantastic opportunity to take the development of this engaged and influential membership organisation to the next level.

A talented networker with a collaborative approach and sound background in higher education strategy, planning or science and technology policy, you’ll relish the opportunity to work on your own initiative, while understanding the importance of delivering an efficient, highly pro-active and responsive service to your members.  The ability to take control of the finances and governance of this Company Limited by Guarantee would be a real plus, as would the ability to manage and motivate a small team.  If you are a website and social media geek and unafraid of hands-on detailed work, so much the better !

The role is offered on a part time (0.5FTE), flexible basis and while it’s home-based there’s a need for regular travel to meetings, mainly in London, but also to other locations within the UK.

For full details, please see the Job Description and Person Specification
