Manager, International Partnerships

Royal Academy of Engineering

Engineering can solve the world’s greatest challenges – you can make it happen.

We are looking for a talented professional to join as a Manager for our International Partnerships team, facilitating our connections with the global engineering community.

The role and the team

The Academy has extraordinary connections across the world. We are looking for someone with excellence in people, projects and partnerships to enable us to contribute to stronger global engineering leadership, connect researchers and innovators working on solutions to global challenges, and support the UK’s strategic advantage in science and engineering.

You’ll be joining a small, friendly and supportive team that engages in a variety of activities delivered via our partnerships with engineering academies around the world, predominantly those within advanced economies in Europe, Asia and North America. Through these channels, we project UK-based engineering knowledge and expertise for global benefit, while also stimulating research and innovation collaboration and injecting international perspectives into the Academy’s UK-based policy work.

What experience are we looking for?

As a Manager of International Partnerships, you will proactively develop and deliver a variety of bilateral and multilateral partnership activities towards the defined goals. We are therefore seeking someone with direct experience of managing international partnership activities or associated programmes or projects, ideally in the field of policy or research and innovation collaboration.

The role requires collaboratively working with colleagues to manage several partnership activities of varying scale and pace at any one time. As a strong project manager, you should be able to deliver desired outcomes and be highly organised, flexible, motivated to work independently and able to influence and communicate effectively with a range of internal and external partners. Experience of working with senior stakeholders, managing committees and project groups, and producing concise, impactful written material is desired.

Ideally, you will have knowledge of the international engineering landscape and the UK’s global ambitions in science and engineering, but most importantly, you will be creative and diplomatic, with a high level of personal credibility.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you!

The Royal Academy of Engineering is harnessing the power of engineering to build a sustainable society and an inclusive economy that works for everyone. In collaboration with our Fellows and partners, we’re growing talent and developing skills for the future, driving innovation and building global partnerships, and influencing policy and engaging the public. We’re a UK-based organisation with a global perspective, and together with our partners, we work to tackle the greatest challenges of our age.

With a diverse workforce and an inclusive and supportive culture, we look to attract candidates from wide and different backgrounds who have a passion for the role engineering plays in society. Our aim is to make the Academy the best place to work for the staff we have and those we seek to attract.

Why work for the Royal Academy of Engineering?

We’re looking for people who are driven to make the world a better place. If you’re passionate about what you do and want to work collaboratively with talented colleagues to make change happen now and for future generations, we want you to get in touch.

This is the perfect time to join us. We have a dynamic, visionary CEO, a strong leadership team and an ambitious and exciting strategy. The value we bring as experts in our field and agents of change is highly recognised and makes the Academy a rewarding place to be. Our work today builds on a long, proud history with a focused and ambitious future, which we’d love you to be part of.
