Science Education Events Manager (WFH)
Industry Sector: Office
Job Ref: 2504
Monday 25th April 2022
To £45,000 per Annum
You’re enthusiastic, creative, understand the secondary school curriculum and have a desire to use your degree to inspire future generations, in all things science.
You also have an interest in commercial management and want to use your business acumen within an ambitious organisation that’s looking to use that commercial experience to expand the current business model, to lead and inspire the team and direct the growth of the business. A truly exciting opportunity to grow with a successful organisation.
You want to use your love of academia, science and all its applications to help young people. And to truly make a difference, no matter how cliché that might sound.
You could be doing that with one of the UK’s leading educational live events companies who create and run stimulating subject-based study days and conferences for up to 40,000 A-Level, GCSE and KS3 students annually.
So, how about being put into the position where you’ll be researching the key trends and future topics currently exciting scientists? Then, organising, running, and marketing large public engagement events each year to reflect these topics, recruiting the leading academically gifted and entertaining education communicators to motivate and inspire students.
You’ll get a real buzz out of talent-spotting sci comms speakers and communicators, building and nurturing your relationships with them. People at the top of their game, recognised and hugely respected, some of them household names - now or destined to be in the future. Whilst science will be your focus, you can expect in your wider role, that you will need an appreciation and understanding of other subjects across the GCSE and A-Level curriculum.
You’ll need to enjoy networking because you’ll also be building relationships with teachers around the country, to get them engaged, driving the marketing communication plan to maximise the number of students attending the events.
Let’s be clear. These events are not seminars or lectures, they are interactive, inspiring, and exhilarating days held in prestigious venues in London and around the UK where hundreds of excited students and their teachers descend on a venue to learn and be energised. Days that leave teachers and students re-charged, stimulated, and motivated to consider the future opportunities that the pursuit of their chosen subject offers.
Flexibility and energy is the key. You’ll need to be IT literate, working from home, managing your own time but in regular contact with the team, attending monthly face to face team meetings in London and at the event venues in London, the Midlands and Manchester.
This is a full-time post which you’ll undertake with the support of an organisation which has long-established relationships that you will continue, whilst building new ones.
You can expect the usual 28 days of annual leave including bank holidays and a company pension scheme.
This is a small, well-established business that pre-Covid has been growing. And we continue to look at ways to ensure growth for the future with an exciting programme of 2022 events already planned.
Work with some of the leading academics and scientists in the country and inspire the next generation.
