The ESRC Council advises the Executive Chair and UKRI Board on social science activity.
Senior leadership team
The ESRC senior leadership team (SLT) has responsibility to ensure appropriate decisions are taken and guidance given to continue the effective operation of the organisation.
The Executive Chair is responsible for the implementation of UKRI policies and decisions, and for the overall management of the ESRC office.
Strategic advisory network
The strategic advisory network (SAN) provides the office with strategic and agile expert advice and support and is designed to complement the work of Council.
Data and infrastructure, skills and methods expert advisory group
The data and infrastructure, skills and methods expert advisory group (EAG) complements ESRC’s existing governance structures by providing more detailed consideration of investments in data and infrastructure, and skills and methods.
We have around 170 staff working across several teams.
Declarations of interest
Good governance in public sector organisations recognises the need to have arrangements in place that prevent, counter and deal with potential conflicts of interest.
The SLT and Council members are required to declare any private, professional or commercial interests that might conceivably conflict with the interests of ESRC.
