|The Royal Academy of Engineering is looking for two high-calibre Policy Officers to develop and deliver evidence-based advice with a strong engineering dimension in areas of national importance that impact upon our daily lives, our economy and our society. From software and tech; energy and decarbonisation, infrastructure and resilience, AI and much much more!
At the Academy, we do policy differently; we explore exciting and engaging ways to share our insights and advice and find new opportunities to connect policymakers with engineering expertise. In 2019, we created the National Engineering Policy Centre, to provide a unified voice for 43 professional engineering organisations, representing 450,000 engineers, and to give policymakers a single route to expertise from across the engineering profession.
We deliver public policy with impact by leveraging the expertise of the nation’s top engineers (our Fellows) and specialist expertise across the engineering profession (our NEPC partners).
We are looking for individuals who can collaborate across professional boundaries, and proactively develop and nurture networks which span government, industry and academia, bringing a diversity of perspectives and expertise to strengthen our advice. Dynamic individuals who will help us to collect, analyse and synthesise data and evidence from multiple sources and translate these engineering insights, into credible and independent policy advice.
You must have strong analytical skills, a passion for public policy, with excellent written and verbal skills and with a proven ability to deliver high quality evidence-based work at pace. We welcome creative and critical thinkers who are open to new ideas and enjoy collaborative ways of working.
If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you.
Closing date: Sunday 27 September.
First interviews: w/c 12 October via video conference (e.g. Zoom).
