Engineering can solve the world's greatest challenges - you can make it happen.
We are looking for a talented professional to join as a Manager for our International Partnerships team, facilitating our connections with the global engineering community.The role and the team
The Academy has extraordinary connections across the world. We are looking for someone with excellence in people, projects and partnerships to enable us to contribute to stronger global engineering leadership, connect researchers and innovators working on solutions to global challenges, and support the UK's strategic advantage in science and engineering.
You'll be joining a small, friendly and supportive team that engages in a variety of activities delivered via our partnerships with engineering academies around the world, predominantly those within advanced economies in Europe, Asia and North America. Through these channels, we project UK-based engineering knowledge and expertise for global benefit, while also stimulating research and innovation collaboration and injecting international perspectives into the Academy's UK-based policy work.What experience are we looking for?
As a Manager of International Partnerships, you will proactively develop and deliver a variety of bilateral and multilateral partnership activities towards the defined goals. We are therefore seeking someone with direct experience of managing international partnership activities or associated programmes or projects, ideally in the field of policy or research and innovation collaboration.
The role requires collaboratively working with colleagues to manage several partnership activities of varying scale and pace at any one time. As a strong project manager, you should be able to deliver desired outcomes and be highly organised, flexible, motivated to work independently and able to influence and communicate effectively with a range of internal and external partners. Experience of working with senior stakeholders, managing committees and project groups, and producing concise, impactful written material is desired.
Ideally, you will have knowledge of the international engineering landscape and the UK's global ambitions in science and engineering, but most importantly, you will be dynamic, creative and diplomatic, with a high level of personal credibility.
