Scientific Communications and Outreach Officer
Universities Federation for Animal Welfare/Humane Slaughter Association
Communicating animal welfare science to both specialist audiences and the wider public is key to turning science into real-world improvements in animal welfare. Both charities are looking to improve the way they translate animal welfare science information into effective communications aimed at various audiences.
You will have a comprehensive scientific knowledge (likely including a degree or postgraduate qualification in a biological science or veterinary medicine) and be a natural and experienced communicator. The ideal candidate will have a portfolio of science communication work through which they can demonstrate their skills.
The postholder will work closely with our internal scientific and technical staff as well as the scientists and experts we work with to produce communications using multiple channels including web, e-learning resources, print, social media, video etc. You should also have experience of promoting news-worthy stories to the media through press-releases and other routes. Experience of graphic design, infographic production and video editing would be advantageous.
