IF Oxford is looking to hire: Festival Manager


The Oxford science and ideas Festival is an annual programme of 100+ events for people to explore complexity, enjoyment and learning across science and arts. During October, IF Oxford presents a season of activity, connecting topics in creative ways, developing individual skills and enriching society, with a focus on families and people who don’t normally think ‘science is for me’. The inspiring 2023 programme engaged 43,000 people, bringing together the scientific and artistic creativity of 750 contributors within 100 live public events.

Terms: Full time (37.5 hours/week; part time available) open-ended, permanent contract (hybrid working, Oxford-based office)


Payment: pay band £30,000–£36,000 (pro rata, based experience)
