Techniquest Glyndŵr (TQG) is North Wales’ largest science discovery centre engaging with over 60,000 people annually, both on-site at Glyndŵr University in Wrexham and off-site as outreach throughout North Wales, North-West England and the Midlands. It has exciting and ambitious plans to extend its education provision, working in partnership with employers and teachers.
TQG’s location on a University campus, and its relationships with the Welsh Government, Glyndŵr University and Techniquest Cardiff, has created a unique partnership in the field of science communication. This has allowed the centre to evolve into a facility that offers a far wider range of activities, including access to specialist facilities and expertise, than would be possible as a stand-alone science discovery centre. TQG’s development and success will be influenced by harnessing the opportunities this provides.
As part of the continued development of the business, TQG is looking to recruit a team of experienced science centre professionals to ensure the continued delivery and development of STEM engagement, CPD activities, funded projects, and activities for educational and public audiences.
- Rate of pay: From ££6.75–£8.05 per hour
