We are looking for a Programme Officer to work within our Research and International Partnership teams. The Programme Officer will support the delivery of various research and innovation programmes. In general, the Programme Officer’s main role will be on a particular scheme but will support other programme activities when responsibilities to that scheme allow.

The Academy’s research and international programmes are expanding with significant additional funding from both the UK government and the Lloyd’s Register Foundation respectively:

  • the Academy’s Research programmes support excellent engineering researchers work in partnership with UK industry to support innovation.
  • the Academy’s International Partnership programmes support the global outlook of the UK Engineering Profession and deliver multi-national partnership programmes to support engineering innovation and skills. For these roles, we favour a topical interest in the main themes of the new partnerships programmes: decommissioning and waste; education and skills in emerging economies; and complex engineered systems.

We are looking for a Programme Officer who can both run efficient application and selection processes for grant schemes and help build and maintain engagement with a community of practice, making sure that grant recipients have a strong, beneficial relationship with the Academy, and each other. You must have strong analytical skills, be highly organised with excellent time management skills and the ability to effectively manage a workload with multiple streams.
