Job Title: Policy and Voice Manager
Working For: EngineeringUK
Salary: circa £35,000 pro rata (dependent on experience)
EngineeringUK is a not-for-profit organisation that works to inspire tomorrow’s engineers and increase the talent pipeline into engineering through educational initiatives. We run two national educational programmes:
• The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fairs
• Tomorrow’s Engineers, a programme of coordinated schools outreach and careers inspiration which seeks to create the next generation of engineers.
These initiatives are underpinned by evaluation activities to assess the impact of their effectiveness, as well as wider research concerning the skills supply and demand in the engineering sector.
About this role
EngineeringUK is embarking on an exciting new strategic plan, with one on the three core elements of that plan to become the recognised, trusted voice and thought leader by government, employers and professional institutions on the engineering labour market, talent pipeline and best approaches to engage young people.
Reporting to the Head of Public Affairs and Senior Research Analyst, you will work to raise the profile of EngineeringUK with politicians, policy-makers and other political stakeholders, and ensure that EngineeringUK’s research is complemented by and used to inform the external policy environment.
This will mean providing support across a range of activities and working with colleagues across EngineeringUK and our partner organisations. You will develop policy positions grounded in the best evidence from EngineeringUK’s primary research and programmes and from our stakeholders. You will take forward EngineeringUK’s stakeholder mapping, helping the organisation to be as strategic as possible and work collaboratively across the engineering and education sectors and beyond. A key part of this role will be to develop outputs that will enable the whole sector to raise the profile of engineering and secure the next generation of engineers, including a policy library to share intelligence across the community.
The role will be based at the EngineeringUK offices in Woolgate Exchange, Basinghall Street, London, EC2 and is likely to involve occasional travel, including attendance at The Big Bang Fair in March.
