Chief Executive's Office
The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) has been at the heart of one of the world’s most important and dynamic industries since its formation in 1847. As a global community of 115,000 mechanical engineers located in 140 countries, the Institution is one of the largest networks of mechanical engineering knowledge, skills and opportunities in the world. Working hard to support its members, the Institution is committed to maintaining professional standards and ensuring the views of engineers are well represented in the public domain. Operating as a charity, IMechE is largely funded through membership subscriptions and commercial income from its four trading subsidiaries. It is governed by a Trustee Board chaired by the President, and advised by a Council formed by the membership.
The Institution has been through a period of transition and has emerged refreshed and better placed to fulfil the aspirations of its Royal Charter, with stronger governance and an enhanced member engagement ethos. The Institution is now looking to the next decade of its development to ensure relevance to a diversifying and increasingly global engineering community. 2021 will see the launch of a number of exciting new initiatives including the development of a new corporate strategy.
Leading a workforce of 200 employees, our next CEO, will work closely with the President and the Trustees to shape the strategy and drive the Institution forward. They will be a strong advocate of IMechE externally and be able to build constructive relationships with business, government, and other engineering organisations. They will work constructively with members and staff to further enhance value for members.
Candidates will bring vision, energy, and strategy development capability. They will bring experience of working within an organisation with a complex governance structure alongside an inclusive and motivational style of leadership. They will have credibility within the engineering and business sectors either through direct industrial experience or having faced into the sector in a leadership capacity. It is highly likely that candidates will be proven leaders within a STEM context. Experience of implementing organisational and cultural change will be highly sought, as will a demonstrable commitment to equality, diversity and inclusivity.
