£24,120 pa + benefits

Closing date: 10 May 2018

Job Type: Paid

Location: London


Can you provide intensive support on an international level?

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.

In this key role, you will provide comprehensive administrative support to ensure the successful delivery of our Leaders in Innovation Fellowship programme, in partnership with 16 Newton Fund countries. Every day will bring different challenges as you organise travel and accommodation, produce programme materials, record data in our Grant Management System and organise entrepreneur pitches. Equally importantly, you will track programme spend to ensure adherence to budgets, co-ordinate training activity, arrange and minute steering group meetings and support a number of high-profile events, giving you total involvement in everything we do.

Organised, methodical and self-motivated, you should bring strong interest in engineering, international development or entrepreneurship. At the same time, you should be passionate about customer service, meticulous in your attention to detail and determined to make a measurable difference, and you will be very team-oriented and flexible in your approach to hours and international travel. Finally, a technical background would be very useful, as would familiarity with engineering in the UK and beyond.
