Evidence ambassadors sought

Sense about Science is recruiting twenty ‘Ask for Evidence’ Ambassadors from around the country, and from all walks of life. If you care about evidence, and want to hold the powerful to account, you could well be one of the newest ambassadors.

‘Ask for Evidence’ is a campaign that helps people challenge claims in news stories, adverts and policies and encourages the public to ask for the evidence behind such claims. Becoming an ambassador is an opportunity to encourage others in your region to Ask for Evidence by giving talks, running activities and talking with community groups about issues that matter to them.

Successful applicants will receive expert training in public speaking, insights into campaigning and communications and opportunities to organise and give talks.

This position is open to anyone who cares about, uses or advocates for evidence in their lives and communities. It is unpaid but reasonable expenses will be covered. If the role is not for you but you think your colleagues or friends could be interested, please do share the details with them.

For more information and details on how to apply please visit our Ask for Evidence website. Applications will close at 5pm on Friday, March 22.
