The Society works through a network of partnerships in the scientific and education community, collaborating with government and international institutions and schools to highlight the urgency and magnitude of the task of understanding the natural world.

A particular focus for this position will be to develop the Society’s marketing materials, to help the Society widen participation in events, to build the Fellowship and to increase awareness. There will also be the opportunity to become involved in the Society’s education initiatives, assisting with the development of educational resources.

You will likely be a science graduate with a flair for design and a passion for natural history. You must have excellent interpersonal skills coupled with proven organisational and administration skills, able quickly and confidently to develop collaborative working relationships, both within the Society and with external partners. Your creative skills should be underpinned by experience of using InDesign and Photoshop. Desirable skills include experience of website CMS systems and filming and editing podcasts of events.
