Communications Officer, Foundation for Science and Technology, London*

Part time role: £22,000 pa for 24 hr/week

The Foundation for Science and Technology
is looking to appoint a part time Communications Officer (around 24
hours per week). The postholder will be responsible for a diverse range
of communication activities. This includes creating and editing content
for the FST Journal, managing the Foundation’s website and social media
platforms, producing analytics of communications activities, and in
addition will commission and edit blogs and podcasts. The role involves
both creating and tailoring content for a number of different
non-specialist audiences. As the Foundation is a small organisation, the
Communications Officer will be involved in other activities associated
with the Foundation, including supporting the delivery of the Foundation
Future Leaders programme.

The ideal candidate will have experience in writing and editing content
of different types and lengths, both for online and physical
publication, and for a range of different audiences. They will be ICT
literate, familiar managing social media platforms and creating
compelling and engaging content, and have experience in managing a
website. The Foundation uses a number of software packages (e.g.
Audacity, Kentico, Soundcloud) and full training can be given.

The role is designed as 24 hours per week, and can be completed flexibly
to fit in with other commitments. The Foundation for Science and
Technology is based in London and the post holder can work from a
mixture of home and office. A work laptop will be provided, as will some
support to establish a home office if desired. The Foundation organises
approximately 10 events per year held in the early evening, and the
Communications Officer will usually be required to be in London on these
dates to support these events. Occasional travel within the UK (up to 4
times per year) may be required.

All applicants must have the right to work in the UK.

The Foundation for Science and Technology is a UK charity, providing an
impartial platform for debate of policy issues that have a science,
research, technology or innovation element. Established in 1977, the
Foundation brings together Parliamentarians, civil servants,
industrialists, researchers, learned societies, charities and others. It
convenes discussion events and round tables, publishes a journal three
times per year and regular blogs, and hosts a weekly podcast. It also
organises the Foundation Future Leaders Programme, supporting the next
generation of professionals from universities, industry and the civil
service. In addition, the Foundation provides guidance on governance
issues to Professional and Learned Societies.
