Current Vacancies

We are currently advertising for an Education and Skills Senior Executive (Higher Education)

This varied role is responsible for delivering the Engineering Council’s Higher Education related activities, including activities related to professional recognition (accreditation or approval) of higher level engineering education and training programmes, tracking developments in UK and international higher education and skills, and supporting relevant committee and working group meetings.

This role will be pivotal in implementing recent revisions to our standards, as well as the outcomes of a review of accreditation and new practices that have evolved during the COVID pandemic.

Reporting to the Education and Skills Manager, the successful candidate will also work with other colleagues, providing timely and accurate advice to UK and international partner organisations, and ensuring that processes are well-documented and working efficiently.

The post holder will need to be comfortable communicating with people at all levels within and external to the Engineering Council, both face-to-face and virtually, and to travel as needed.

This role requires a high level of enthusiasm and commitment, in return the successful candidate will benefit from opportunities to gain experience and knowledge across a range of activities in a small organisation.

We do not necessarily expect candidates to have relevant experience (although that would be an advantage), so will be looking particularly for evidence of committee support and minute writing experience, good written work, attention to detail, and an enthusiastic and flexible attitude when recruiting.

For further details see role profile

If you are interested in this role please submit your CV as soon as possible to

We hope to conduct first interviews in early December after shortlisting from CVs submitted before 22 November, but may consider interviewing sooner if strong CVs are received earlier.
