Employer Advisor

The Science Council is a membership organisation for professional bodies and learned societies across the disciplines of science. It promotes the advancement and dissemination of knowledge of and education in science, pure and applied, for the public benefit. The Science Council is a charitable body that sets the standards for professional registration for practising scientists and science technicians.

The Science Council is looking to recruit an Employer Advisor to join its friendly team to support the technical pathways team in engaging and influencing employers to consider technical career pathways into the sciences. The project, funded by the Gatsby Foundation seeks to embed and align professional registration to apprenticeships, T Levels and Higher Technical Qualifications.

The postholder will implement strategies and work with employers and professional bodies to encourage and support the growth of apprenticeships and work placements in the sciences, with the aim of facilitating more technical learners to go on to achieve professional registration. As part of your role you will work with colleagues to deliver the ‘employer champions’ programme and devise initiatives in conjunction with professional bodies to engage more employers with technical education.
