Job description

The Microbiology Society is a membership charity for scientists interested in microbes, their effects and their practical uses. It is one of the largest microbiology societies in Europe with a worldwide membership based in universities, industry, hospitals, research institutes and schools.

Our principal goal is to develop, expand and strengthen the networks available to our members so that they can generate new knowledge about microbes and ensure that it is shared with other communities. The impacts from this will drive us towards a world in which the science of microbiology provides maximum benefit to society.

We are looking for an Associate Director of Members’ Programmes to join our friendly and welcoming team, based in central London. You will be joining the Society at an exciting time as we deliver our Strategy 2018-2022 and celebrate our 75th anniversary in 2020. This role provides leadership and strategic direction for the development, implementation and evaluation of the Society’s activities that support the microbiology community, with a focus on building communities and impact and influence. Supporting the Chief Programmes Officer and Director of Strategy with the delivery of all of Council’s strategic objectives, the postholder will also be a proactive member of the Senior Management Team, providing leadership and championing change to support a culture and behaviour across the organisation that aligns with the Society’s values.

A background in our work is not a necessity, but you will have leadership experience coupled with the ability to understand the challenges and opportunities that we face. Being able to look across the organisation and identify ways of maximising member engagement is vital, as is having the commitment and energy needed to help us achieve a real impact.
