Our ambition is to inspire tomorrow’s engineers and grow the size and diversity of the talent pool into engineering. Further information on EngineeringUK can be found on our website.

EngineeringUK has two upcoming vacancies for independent members of its Audit, Risk and Investment Committee, which assists the EngineeringUK Board by reporting to it on: the integrity and regulatory compliance of the financial statements of EngineeringUK and its subsidiaries; the performance of the external auditor; the functioning of EngineeringUK’s internal controls and procedures; risk management and the performance of the Investment Fund Manager.

If you are a CCAB qualified accountant with senior experience either within a financial, accounting or audit background, or of charity or governance issues more generally, we would be very pleased to hear from you.

We are committed to diversity and welcome applications from a diverse range of candidates.

  • To monitor and review the organisation’s financial statements and reports, including review of the statutory accounts before submission to the Board;
  • To review the organisation’s corporate and programme risk registers and provide guidance on risk management;
  • To consider the appointment and performance of the external auditor;

  • To monitor the organisation’s investment portfolio and advise on the appointment of fund manager.


Committee members are expected to attend three two-hour meetings per year in London and to prepare for these meeting by reading papers circulated in advance.
