Exeter Chamber

The Exeter Initiative for Science and Technology (ExIST) is a dedicated sub-group of Exeter Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The Initiative was founded in June 2011 by a group of business leaders from Greater Exeter. The Initiative aims to optimise interaction between organisations (business, academic, and schools) with interests in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM), to increase awareness of Exeter as a centre for science and technology, to build relationships between education at all levels and businesses, and to encourage investment in all STEMM organisations in the region. The faciliatory role that ExIST has played over the past nine years has resulted in it becoming the recognised and independent voice of the STEMM sector in our region.


The Role


To ensure ExIST’s continued success, we are seeking to appoint a Vice Chairperson, to work alongside the current Chair, Clodagh Murphy, for a period of up to 12 months.   You will be joining an enthusiastic and engaged voluntary steering group of organization representatives and your role will involve the continual development of ExIST  by championing, facilitating, and supporting the science and technology sectors.  

After 12 months, the Vice Chair will step into the role of Chair and be enrolled as a Board Director of Exeter’s Chamber of Commerce.

This is a pure voluntary role and you will need to be able to devote a minimum of 1-2 days per month.  If you are passionate about science and technology and have a strong business background then we would like to hear from you. 

To apply please send your CV together with an overview of why you feel you would be a suitable Vice Chair to Joanne Caine.
