Head of Engagement Projects (maternity cover)

Closing date: 23 Mar 2023

Fixed term (14 months) part / full time (4 to 5 days a week)


Reporting to the Director of Engagement Programmes, the Head of Engagement Projects has a breadth of responsibility that will be critical to delivering our 2023-28 strategy. You will provide strategic development and iterative delivery of projects that directly work with young people, typically 11-14 year olds, to inspire them into engineering and technology.

At this time, these are Energy Quest and Robotics Challenge in-school workshops that are delivered by a network of partners across the UK. These projects and newly developed projects respond to evaluation, funder and young people’s changing needs.

A significant part of the role is to actively develop and seek funding for new products especially in strategic priority areas (e.g., AI, renewables, ethics). It is critical that these projects align with our other engagement activities, especially the Big Bang Programme, and together these activities make up the third strand of our strategy – to expand EngineeringUK engagement - and we are seeking to double the reach of our more intensive activities over the next 5 years.
