The NCCPE is recruiting

Do you want to make a difference? Then help us to realise our goal - to bring about a step change in how the higher education sector engages with the public.

The National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE) is recruiting for new team members to join us in Bristol, with a number of opportunities over the next few months.

The NCCPE was set up in 2008 to support universities to embed engagement with the public into their culture and ways of working. We do this through inspiring people to understand the value of engagement to their work; supporting people to engage effectively; and connecting people to share learning and practice across the higher education sector and beyond.

We receive strategic funding from a consortium of funders, including UK Research and Innovation, Wellcome and the UK Higher Education Funding Councils. We also deliver a vibrant portfolio of services for the higher education sector.

The NCCPE is jointly hosted by UWE Bristol and the University of Bristol. All our roles are based in the NCCPE office in central Bristol.
