About the role

The Ri has a clear vision that ‘Science is for Everyone’ and it is our belief that everyone should have equitable access to science. Through our packed event programme available in person or online, our UK schools outreach and social impact initiatives, and our global digital reach including 1.4m YouTube subscribers we achieve our mission by connecting people with scientists to explore science together.
