Head of Education - Biochemical Society
London, UK

Are you interested in supporting bioscience education at all levels from schools to post-graduate? Able to manage a range of projects, from research and planning right through to monitoring and evaluation? Could you plan innovative ways of fulfilling our educational mission? Are you enthusiastic about science education, outreach and communication? Then your next exciting career opportunity could be with us.

The Biochemical Society is one of the largest Learned Societies in UK bioscience. We promote the advancement of the molecular biosciences which underpin and explain the essential processes of life impacting on modern biology. The Society represents and supports the interests of all those working in the sector through our membership, conferences, education and policy initiatives, publications and grants.

Our Education team supports the Society’s charitable objective of communication, outreach and engagement through a diverse range of novel events and resources: school science websites, teachers' workshops, public events, arts initiatives and festivals, studentship grants, school visits, careers information, policy work and young researchers' symposia.

We wish to recruit a talented individual who will lead the Education Team, managing and further developing an existing portfolio of activities in support of science education and managing 1-2 staff. Educated to at least A Level standard (although a degree in science, communication or education would be desirable) the successful candidate is likely to have excellent communication and interpersonal skills together with the ability to work independently. Budgetary and event organisation skills would be particularly helpful. They will join the Society at a very exciting time in our development as we plan our move to purpose-refurbished accommodation in Central London that we will share with two sister societies and that we intend to develop as a hub for all UK bioscience.

The Biochemical Society is committed to being an equal opportunities employer welcoming people from the widest possible diversity of background, culture and experience.

Salary: £28,000-34,000 depending on experience
