The Irish Concrete Society is a well-established learned body, founded to promote excellence in the use of concrete and to also provide a valuable service to the wider construction industry. The Society is seeking to appoint an Executive Officer to further enhance and develop the services offered by the Society.
This is a high profile role within the construction sector in Ireland. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to expand their horizons through collaboration and networking with colleagues across the multi-disciplinary construction community. In promoting excellence in concrete design and construction the successful candidate will play an important role in the sustainable development of the Irish construction industry.
Responsibilities and Duties:
Priorities for the appointee will include:
- To promote the widespread adoption of Society training courses, particularly the Concrete Ticket, and develop future formal training offerings.
- To promote and develop Society lectures to inform and educate members on technical matters.
- To grow membership through promotion of the benefits for Society members.
- Management of the day-to-day activities of the Society, including collaboration with Council members and other stakeholders, both national and international.
- Liaison with other professional and industry organisations.
- Responding to and managing requests for technical information and advice.
This role will involve working under the direction of, and reporting to, the directors and Council of the Society; however, the successful candidate must have the ability to work as part of a small team and to promote participation among members and committees. The successful candidate will also be expected to be highly self-motivated and have a professional enthusiasm for concrete as a construction material.
The ideal candidate should have a third level qualification, preferably a degree in a construction discipline, and have experience in the construction industry. Excellent networking, communication and interpersonal skills are essential in this role, as is a good working knowledge of information and communications technology.
