Glasgow Science Centre (GSC) is an educational charity and leading science centre and visitor attraction with a 5-star status. Our mission is to inspire everyone to explore and understand the world around them and to discover and enjoy science.

We are a place of learning, creativity, curiosity, and fun, inspiring and empowering around half a million people every year, both inside and outside our amazing centre in Pacific Quay, on the banks of the Clyde.

Our state-of-the-art centre contains more than 450 interactive exhibits, a digital planetarium, a science show theatre, Newton Flight Academy, a teaching laboratory, an IMAX cinema, and a maker space. We also take science out of our centre and across Scotland with our On Tour programme and our Community Engagement Programme works closely with people in our local communities.

Our staff are vitally important to us and play a key role in achieving our mission. We value diversity in our workforce and want our workforce to reflect the diverse communities we serve bringing a range of skills, experiences, knowledge, and ideas to help towards our mission.

Our company values are important to us as they underpin who we are and how we work, what we believe in and stand for:

We strive for excellence

We innovate

We collaborate


Are you committed to seeking excellence, creativity and innovation? Do GSC’s mission and values excite you? Do you want to work in a positive, vibrant and collaborative environment?

We are recruiting for a Science Communicator to deliver science engagement for our audiences across all 3 floors of our Science Galleries supporting our weekend operations. Our Science Galleries are home to a wide range of interactive exhibits, and are a fun and active environment full of creativity, curiosity, and learning.

A key aspect of this role is to engage visitors, making them feel safe and welcome, and to communicate scientific concepts accurately, asking questions related to exhibits, provoking discussion, explaining scientific concepts, and making links to visitors’ everyday experiences whilst providing 5-star customer service.

You will be motivated to inspire and challenge others with science, have a passion for learning, and experience of working with the public, children and community groups. You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and enjoy working with people, and you will be inspired by our mission and share our company values. This contract is to cover our busy weekend periods and therefore you will also be available to work Saturdays and Sundays.

If this sounds like you then we would love you to get in touch!
