Job Description

The Communications Officer will be responsible for delivering the communications activity for several of the BSA’s flagship programmes. They will create engaging content for our digital channels, as well as work on national PR campaigns, develop social media strategies and produce thought-provoking case studies.

They will work on key aspects of the British Science Week campaign, including leading on Smashing Stereotypes, as well contributing towards the wider communications campaign.

The Communications Officer will also work closely with our Community Engagement team to promote and communicate the work of their programmes, including Community Leaders and the Community-Led Research Pilot.

The Communications Officer role will suit someone who loves to produce high quality, standout content for a wide and varied audience.

We are looking for someone who is proactive and creative, with an eye for detail. You should be a compelling storyteller, with experience in developing engaging content in various media.

You do not need a background in science to apply for this role – we are looking for someone who wants to communicate messages and deliver excellent content.

You will have the opportunity to work with a range of stakeholders in this role, including some of the BSA’s beneficiaries, our partners and sponsors, the press and media, as well as contractors. You need to feel comfortable meeting and talking to new people.

You will occasionally work at events, so a professional manner is a must, and a willingness to travel to other parts of the UK from time to time.
