NICEC is hoping to recruit four new UK Fellows for 2024
The National Institute for Career Education and Counselling invites applications to become a UK NICEC Fellow.
NICEC is owned, led and run by its Fellows who are appointed on the basis of their ability to support NICEC to achieve its aims. In legal terms, NICEC is a company and its Fellows are shareholders. Fellows meet at least six times a year to discuss the running of NICEC and share experiences and expertise. Fellows make an annual financial contribution to NICEC (currently £80 each). NICEC Members also pay annual membership fees.
Fellows should be able to provide evidence of:
- a significant impact in the field of career development evidenced by experience in any setting including education, the workplace, or the wider community — relevant experience may include research, policy, consultancy, scholarship, service delivery, practice or management
- a willingness to facilitate or stimulate constructive dialogue across domains of policy, practice, development and research
- a commitment to continued learning in this field
- an interest in joining the NICEC and actively working to develop its activities.
A full role description is also available below.
We anticipate appointing four new UK-based Fellows in 2024.
We are interested in representing as many types of career development work as possible and having Fellows from diverse backgrounds and communities within the UK.
At present we would especially welcome applications from people whose work focuses on primary schools, secondary schools, further education, public careers provision for adults or with employers, particularly in the field of apprenticeships. We would also welcome applications from those who are in current practice or who are involved in managing careers services, those with experience of journal editing and publishing, and individuals with experience in careers advocacy and policy work.
To apply, send a CV/resumé along with a personal statement explaining what you hope to contribute to NICEC as a Fellow based on your experience.
You can also use the email address [email protected] to contact us with any questions about the Fellow role before applying.
The deadline for applications is 31 March 2024.
As part of the previous Fellows recruitment we held an open online panel session on 5th December for anyone interested in applying to become a NICEC Fellow. A recording of that session is available if you want a bit more insight into the role.
We hope to run a similar session for the new recruitment round — details to follow soon.
