Job Description

Explorer Dome South East is recruiting!

We are looking to recruit a new presenter in London. 

Explorer Dome is a science outreach company that delivers hands-on science shows in an inflatable planetarium in schools across the UK.

Our brilliant presenters are at the heart of everything we do here at Explorer Dome. When schools book a visit from us, they expect to receive the best quality science shows from presenters who are knowledgeable, highly trained, passionate about science education and most importantly, fun!

Once trained, we pay our presenters a day rate of £100 per day (plus extras for long or demanding days). Training is also paid at £60 per day, plus any extras. This will be variable, but training will consist of around four days initially, then two annual refresher days thereafter.

If you are interested, please send a full CV and covering letter (of no more than one side of A4) to [email protected] telling me about yourself and why you’d like to work with us. If applicable, it would be great to hear about your background and experience in science, outreach, working with children, any creative input you’ve had in previous jobs – as well as anything else you’d like to tell us!

For further information and any questions, email at: [email protected]

Person Specification

We are looking for someone to join our team who:

  • Is based in London.
  • Has a genuine enthusiasm for science and for communicating science. You don't need to have a science degree, but you do need to be able to answer children's science questions (everything from "what is a black hole?" to "how does friction actually work?" and "are you a scientist?")  with accuracy, confidence, and in a way they are able to understand.
  • Has at least one, ideally two, days free per week. Days typically start in school at 8am. You will need to be OK with an early start - schools may be anywhere within the M25, and a full day in school can sometimes finish after 3pm.
  • Holds a full UK driving license.
  • Available to work from the start of September 2019.
