We’re welcoming people from all backgrounds and work experiences, who have a passion for and qualification in STEM and can drive excellence in all we do. At the IPO, your knowledge and qualities can make a real impact on growing innovation across the UK.
We understand the need for a good work/life balance and offer both flexitime and output not hours along with homeworking. We offer a wealth of learning and development opportunities to enhance your skills, such as one-to-one coaching and workshops. We also have a dedicated mentoring scheme for Women in STEM.
We know life offers lots of challenges and opportunities that can impact work. At the IPO, we don’t believe it should prevent you from reaching your full potential.
