Explorer Dome Midlands is looking to recruit a new presenter. We are a science outreach company that delivers hands-on science shows in an inflatable planetarium in schools across the region. As a former Outreach mentor, I know that you have the attitude and experience working with children that can make you a successful presenter for us.
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 knowledgable, highly trained, passionate about science education and, most importantly, fun!
We are looking for someone to join our team who: 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 with no contact hours per week. Days typically start in school at 8am (you also need to be OK with an early start – that school may be in Nottingham!), and a full day can finish in school after 3pm. Holds a full UK driving license Available to work from the start of term January 2018.
