Role Description

The UK Aerospace Research Consortium (UK-ARC) is a consortium of the UK’s 11 leading aerospace research universities launched in July 2018 to provide the global aerospace community with a centralised point of engagement to the UK’s top university aerospace research capabilities and to support the development of coordinated aerospace research and future skills development within the HEI sector.

Flexible Working

We actively consider flexible working options such as part-time, compressed or flexible hours and/or an element of homeworking, and commit to exploring the possibilities for each role. Find out more here.
