Marketing Executive


We're expanding the Braintastic! Science team 

Sensational Science Presenter

To be a Braintastic! Science presenter you need to have: 

  • A degree in neuroscience, psychology or a related field, or comparable experience in the area

  • Confidence on stages large and small

  • A willingness to learn & grow (I still regularly get questions from kids that I can’t answer!)

  • A passion to share your love of the brain with young people

Ideally, you will also have:

  • Experience in SciComm

  • Experience working with young people

We will provide:

  • Training on the Braintastic! Science suite of shows and workshops for schools

  • All the kit needed to deliver the content.

  • Ongoing coaching and mentoring to make you a better science communicator

Some more details: 

  • The role operates on a freelance basis, paid at £200 per day (plus travel expenses). 

  • Shows will mainly fall within school hours during term time, or on weekends, so flexibility is needed. Number of shows is variable, but I would expect a presenter to sign up for between 10-15 days’ presenting over the course of the year. Our preference is for someone with other freelance work, or flexible part-time hours. 

  • The role will require travel. We get bookings from all over the UK and while we try to match these to your home location that’s not always possible depending on presenter availability. A car would be helpful, but I regularly take the kit on the train, so public transport is do-able, if you are based somewhere with good transport connections. 

  • As a freelancer you will need to provide your own Public Liability Insurance to ensure you’re covered if anything goes wrong. This only costs about £70/year (or it’s included as part of Equity membership) and will cover all your freelance work, not just your shows with Braintastic! Science.

We particularly welcome applicants from ethnic minority groups, as they are currently under-represented in our presenter pool.  


If you are interested in applying, please email (with 'Braintastic! Science Presenter' in the subject line) by Wednesday 6th November including: 

  • Why you think you would be right for this role. 

  • Your sci-comm/ presenting experience. 

  • Your experience in psychology/ neuroscience. 

  • Your current work (or study) situation, and how many days’ presenting for Braintastic! Science you can commit to.  

  • A video of yourself presenting. If you don't have a video, you can film a short clip (1-2 mins, filmed on your phone is fine) of you explaining your favourite fact about the brain, as you would to a 10 year old.  

We’re on the hunt for more sensational science presenters for schools and festivals! If you are passionate about neuroscience and psychology, confident on stage and love answering kids’ questions about the brain, we want to hear from you!
