Much of this will be achieved through planned marketing campaigns, use of internal support systems and effective communication with the audience. You will also seek opportunities to grow the student membership of the RSC.

In this role you will also cultivate relationships with key contacts at academic institutions, predominantly focussed within the UK and ROI, but in key international institutions that are part of the RSC accredited universities community.

  • A proactive approach to solving problems and developing new approaches, whilst balancing and prioritising across multiple projects, approaches and initiatives.
  • Able to interact, influence and network competently with RSC colleagues, members and peers at other professional bodies.
  • Able to provide reasoned opinion and objective advice to colleagues and members.

The contractual base for this role is our Cambridge office, however we are currently embracing hybrid working, and therefore you will have the opportunity to also work from a UK location other than this, as agreed with your line manager. Applicants should be aware that there is an expectation that employees will regularly attend the offices and travel as required in this role.
