Centre for Life are looking to appoint a Science Engagement Director to be a key member of the executive management team. Reporting to the Chief Executive, your primary responsibilities will be to contribute actively to the overall mission, to manage a comprehensive Science engagement programme and to develop further Life’s international reputation for science engagement.
Science in the 21st century is fast moving, potentially life-enhancing and certainly controversial. As someone who is forward looking and an experienced science communications professional, you will excel in offering cutting edge science in a form that is easily accessible to everyone. You will be a strong leader, capable of developing a team that is both creative and effective. You will develop strategic alliances and partnerships with cultural and commercial organisations and build long term plans for exhibitions, programmes and education.
The successful candidate will have a proven track record at a senior level in a science centre or museum. You will ideally have a post-graduate qualification in an appropriate science discipline, have excellent people management and organisational skills and be a team player.
This role offers potential for someone looking for a senior role with new challenges and wanting to work in an innovative place that is passionate about science. Salary is negotiable for the right candidate dependent on experience.
