£23,000 - £25,000 per annum
Life has an exciting vacancy for a creative and highly-motivated individual to lead our Making and Science Engagement team in the new Making Studios. As someone with a passion for learning, making and tinkering you will be inspiring our visitors to create; in particular you will develop and facilitate imaginative and innovative making activities for science centre visitors and school groups.
The ideal candidate will be confident, approachable and reliable, with excellent organisational skills, preferably have a degree in a STEM/creative subject (or equivalent qualification) and have relevant experience in a hands-on making, education or science engagement context. You will have proven experience of bringing the philosophy of making and tinkering to a wider audience and be skilled in crafting prototypes from different materials both physically and digitally.
Duties will also include supervising the day-to-day running, cleanliness and good order of the Making Studios, including materials and equipment.
Applicants must be able to work flexible hours as the science centre is open 7 days a week and it is essential the Making Studios are managed during peak times, weekends and occasional evening events.
