There are currently 4 roles open at the BSA London Branch. Please find the duties of these roles below. 

HOW TO APPLY: If you are interested in either of these roles, please email with a short (200-300 word) description of why you would like to get involved as well as any experience that you have.


The responsibilities of the Secretary include:

– Taking minutes at meetings.
– Writing agendas.
– Producing quarterly branch reports.
– Supporting the committee.
– Keeping HQ updated about committee position changes.

This role would suit anyone with good organisational and communication skills.

Partnership Operator

We are looking to further expand our partnership team, hence for highly motivated and enthusiastic communicators. Partnership operators will be under the responsibility of our partnership officers. The role entails the following:

– Contact potential partners and follow up with them.
– Reviewing our sponsorship packages.
– Liaise with the Partnership Officers.

This is an excellent entry level position to get you involved in volunteering with the London Branch.

Events Officer

The Events Officer is responsible for organising and coordinating various events throughout the year, most notably the Science Museum Lates (SMLs) and a series of SciBar events.

Responsibilities include:

  • Organising meetings with volunteers to come up with ideas for events.
  • Researching events.
  • Liaising with potential speakers.
  • Writing an event proposal.
  • Managing volunteers on the day.

The role requires good organisational skills, communication and enthusiasm! It’s a great opportunity to get creative, really engage with public events and be involved in Science London as it expands as well as gain some experience in science communication.

Grants Officer

Duties include:

  • Keeping a record of public engagement grants Science London can apply for.
  • Together with the Volunteer Coordinators, advertising upcoming grant opportunities.
  • Supporting any volunteers who would like to apply for a grant.
  • Tracking upcoming grants deadlines.
  • Rallying the team to write proposals.

A commitment of one to two hours a week would suffice (to seek new opportunities, update records and advertise upcoming deadlines), and nearly all of the role’s tasks can be done remotely. Science London already keeps a grants database which needs some regular updates but not much additional work.

This role would suit someone who would like to exercise writing capabilities, as well as gain experience in grant-writing, but who already possesses good organisational and communication skills.
