Chair of Board of Trustee Directors

Unremunerated, reasonable expenses paid

The Engineering & Design Institute (TEDI-London) is brought to you by three global heavyweights in higher education: Arizona State University, King’s College London, and UNSW Sydney.

TEDI-London was founded to address the critical shortage of engineers worldwide and enhance the quality of engineering graduates with the right mix of technical, social, and contextual skills to tackle the challenges of the Sustainable Development Goals and change people’s lives. Targeting a more diverse cohort of students than traditional engineering degrees, TEDI-London aims to attract and empower socially aware and globally focussed engineers through its innovative, industry informed and project-based curriculum.

From its founding in 2019, through to starting up with an inaugural cohort in September 2021 and welcoming the second cohort in September 2022, TEDI-London continues to push boundaries and challenge the norms in engineering education.

We are now looking for a new Chair of our Board of Trustee Directors to join us at what is an exciting time on our journey as we begin to scale up and deliver our ambitious targets for growth and the achievement of our 2025 Strategic Plan.

An alignment with the TEDI-London’s vision to transform engineering education to transform lives – both for students and the users of the products they design and make will be key for this role. As Chair of the TEDI-London Board of Trustee Directors your leadership skills and enthusiasm for what we are trying to achieve will be pivotal to help secure our future success.

The Chair of the TEDI-London Board is responsible for overseeing our strategic direction and links TEDI-London to the Presidents and Vice Chancellors of our founding partners. You will have a passion for transforming engineering education and will wish to support and mentor our CEO, Leadership Team, and staff in bringing our vision to life. You will have substantive understanding of the role a Board fulfils in an education institution, and extensive experience of the engineering sector.

The people who work with us reflect our ambitions for our students. Continuous development and improvement are part of our DNA.  We attract people who want to do things differently and take advantage of the opportunities in the world around them.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.
