Job Description

Sense about Science is a unique campaigning charity that challenges the misrepresentation of science and evidence in public life. We advocate openness and honesty about research findings, and work to ensure the public interest in sound science and evidence is recognised in public discussion and policymaking.

Sense about Science is seeking to recruit two Trustees to widen the experience of its current board. 

  • One vacancy is for an individual with a background in, or good understanding of, fundraising who will be able to support the board and senior team in shaping its fundraising strategy (regular giving, major donor and legacy).
  • The second vacancy is for an individual with a senior science or research background and with experience of working on international policy issues with EU institutions to support our planned growth in Europe.

he board meets on a quarterly basis, normally in central London, and trustees are expected to make a contribution to our work through support for projects and events.

We’ve changed many debates about science and evidence over the past 15 years by involving the public and researchers in challenging misleading claims; we started and lead the AllTrials campaign for all clinical trials to be registered and reported; we review the transparency of government’s use of evidence each year and run the Ask for Evidence public campaign. We help people use scientific questioning to navigate debates, from forensic genetics to radiation risks. Our direct approach to difficult subjects is ‘public led, expert fed’, and it is in high demand.

Our London office is based in Clerkenwell. We also have offices in Brussels and Dublin. We have a team of 12 staff and 40 volunteers.

We value diversity at Sense about Science and welcome applications from all sections of the community.

If you are interested in applying for one of these vacancies, please submit your CV and short cover letter by 10am Monday 18 September to Emily Jesper-Mir, head of partnerships and governance. You can also contact Emily to arrange an informal conversation about the roles (see our website).

The client is happy to conduct telephone interviews for overseas candidates.

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.

You should never provide bank or financial information, or make any form of payment, when applying for a job. If you are ever asked to do this by a recruiter on our site, please email: [email protected]
