Policy officer (intern)

The Engineering Professors’ Council (EPC)[1] is the representative organisation for engineers in UK universities.  With 80 institutional members comprising more than 6,000 academic staff, we provide advocacy for continuing investment in the UK’s engineering faculties, champion innovation in engineering education and provide extensive support and information for our members.

We’re looking for someone to join us on a fixed, 6 month contract as a paid intern. The successful candidate will spend the first 3 months based at the offices of the Campaign for Science and Engineering[2] (CaSE) in London working on a jointly-sponsored project for CaSE and the EPC and supporting and learning about CaSE’s wider advocacy work.  The second 3 months will be spent supporting the EPC’s Executive Director and newly elected President in its governance, strategy, events and communications activities.  This second 3 months will be home-based with regular trips to London for team meetings.

This role is a fantastic opportunity for someone wishing to develop their career in policy and communication. Knowledge and empathy with the issues in engineering education and research are essential.  Highly flexible, the role will be offered on a 0.5 FTE basis (£24,775 pro rata equivalent) – although there is also the option of full-time for 3 months if preferred.

The successful candidate must be available to start on 7th September, 2015.

Everyone at the EPC and CaSE gives their all and we’ll be looking to our intern to do the same. In return, we’re offering the opportunity to make a significant contribution to EPC’s future strategy, research and deliver a policy report and gain valuable experience working in a science and engineering policy environment.
