Science Communications and Events Lead Experience

Our client is looking to recruit a professional, confident and reliable individual with experience of science communications, in particular communicating scientific content to a wide range of audiences in a clear and engaging manner. A degree level or equivalent in STEM with relevant work experience in Events or Communications is preferred. Experience within an education setting would be advantageous.

Excellent verbal and written communication skills will be essential to build professional and effective working relationships with key stakeholders both within and outside the organisation, as well as the ability to inspire the trust of colleagues when dealing with difficult and confidential matters, and to work in a fast-paced, constantly evolving environment and with a multi-cultural and diverse team.

A proactive self-starter with a ‘can do’ attitude, who can hit the ground running, and confidently challenge and offer improvements where required.

You will be able to demonstrate a pragmatic and diplomatic attitude and take responsibility for your own workload and actions. You will be hands-on, versatile and polite with an honest and transparent nature and a respect for company policies. This is a very process-driven environment.
