Director of Governance and External Engagement

Working to engineer a better world is why we exist and why, for the past 150 years, we’ve been using our influence, knowledge and expertise to champion the role of engineering and technology for the future of our society and our planet.

Climate change and the energy crisis are currently, without doubt, the most difficult and important challenges of our time and have highlighted to the world the important role engineers and technicians have in creating solutions.

There are also vast opportunities that technology opens for us, whether that’s connecting people across the world, developing systems that offer us all longer and healthier lives, or using less of our natural resources. Engineering feats and the technological advances we have not even dreamt about yet will be fundamental in solving these problems and embracing the future.

We now want to find an experienced and innovative leader as we embark on our ambitious journey, taking the organisation to the next level and delivering on our purpose-led mission.

As one of the leader's of the largest Professional Engineering Institution in Europe, you will have a key role in influencing governments and policymakers, as well as acting as a global ambassador for the engineering profession. We need someone who isn’t shy of being in the spotlight.
