Engineering is at the heart of our nation and our future: transforming ideas and materials into global infrastructure, products and services that increase the wealth and health of our economy and society. As the UK’s national academy for engineering, we bring together the discipline’s finest minds to promote excellence and champion innovation.

We’re determined to make our industry as diverse and inclusive as possible, so you will partner engineering employers, professional engineering institutions, trade bodies and third-sector organisations to deliver initiatives across gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, age, social mobility and any other characteristic of importance to the Academy D&I Programme.

We will look to you to design and deliver proposals, produce briefings, advise on equality diversity and inclusion and produce support material, whilst representing us at conferences, events and meetings – so every day will bring different challenges. You will ensure effective and engaging communications via our website, newsletters, media releases and reports which demands a creative approach and expert knowledge of diversity and inclusion. In particular, you will fully understand the employee lifecycle and employment practices, the barriers faced by underrepresented groups in engineering and STEM, and current and evolving legislation and best practice. Ideally, you will possess a relevant formal qualification and have experience of delivering interventions that drive change. You will bring intellectual rigor to everything and be capable of delivering projects on time and within budget. We are seeking someone who is keen to take their diversity and inclusion skills to the next level by working in a fast-paced and rewarding environment.
