Appointment of Special Advisers

To ensure that the Society increases its reach and influence, we have decided to establish two new Special Adviser roles in two areas of particular interest – (i) International Affairs and (ii) Research & Innovation.

We would like to appoint a Fellow to each role who can provide specialist advice to Council, advocate for the Society’s priorities, and develop our relationships with other stakeholders.

The Special Advisers will report directly to the President. They will be appointed for 1 year initially, with the possibility of renewal for up to 4 further years.
