Science Made Simple is recruiting!

Posted 15 December 2018

Science Made Simple is expanding its Cardiff-based team of presenters and support staff in the light of exciting new projects starting in 2019. Over the coming years we have projects in place through funding from leading grant-giving bodies – including EU Horizon 2020, IOP, STEM Learning/ESERO and IET – so this is a great time to join us if you are keen to hone your skills in the STEM engagement industry.

We are interested in receiving applications from entry- and intermediate-level science communicators of all disciplines who would like to develop their skills in engaging school and public audiences with STEM, but who also have an appetite to learn the ropes of developing new content, project management, promotion and fundraising (not all once of course, but over time). There are opportunities to travel too – we have tours set in Ireland, Spain, Beijing, Blackburn…

Science Made Simple is a friendly company of around 10 staff with some of the most experienced STEM engagement professionals in the UK working here. We enjoy providing development opportunities that help shiny new science communicators get into the industry, and help people step up to new challenges, so if that’s you, and you have a talent for presenting STEM with energy and drive, then we’re eager to meet you.

We also want to expand our admin support team – we need a competent and organised administrator to help us manage our bookings and keep us in good order. You do not have to have STEM qualifications for this but an interest in science and engineering would be useful.

We have three vacancies – two STEM Communicators (full/part time, fixed term and maternity cover), and an Office Administrator (20hrs pw, 44 wks within school terms and timings). We are open to suggestion about redistribution of these roles to fit the right team together, so if you have ideas, we’re happy to consider them.

Deadline for applications: Wednesday 2 January 2019, 5pm
