Job Details

Would you like to play a crucial role in running an organisation that improves the way science is covered in the news? Diet, microplastics, animal research, e-cigarettes, Alzheimer’s, climate change, fracking… if it’s controversial science, the Science Media Centre will be working flat out to provide the best, most accurate and most authoritative evidence-based science in a frenetic 24-hour news environment.

This dynamic and fast-moving media operation needs a highly competent, exceptionally well-organised individual to ensure that everything is running smoothly behind the scenes. Reporting to the CEO and the Board of Trustees, as Operations Manager you will be responsible for the SMC’s financial management, fundraising administration, IT strategy, HR policies, preparation of annual accounts and bookkeeping.

You will guide the governance of the charity and complete statutory reporting. You will not be afraid to get your hands dirty and you will provide practical support to the team while staying focused on your role and priorities.
