DEFRA have asked us to advertise opportunities for Higher Executive Officers in the role of HSO Expert and External Advice. Role holders will develop a strong understanding of the key work programmes of the Central Science Division and departmental science teams and how these support Defra priorities. They will develop and manage projects to support the workstream augmenting Defra’s scientific expertise with that from academia and industry. Opportunities are available in York, Bristol, London and Newcastle.
Further information about these roles, including responsibilities, person specification, salary and benefits can be found on the Civil Service website. Deadline for applications is 22nd May.
Although the person specification asks for a science degree, DEFRA say this opportunity is best suited to someone who has completed a Masters or PhD.
