Do you have excellent communication skills with the ability to confidently interact with a diverse range of people? Would you like to build your experience of working in a communications environment?

The National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) is one of the six research centres supported by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). We pursue long-term research in Climate and High-Impact Weather, Air Pollution, and Long-Term Global Change. We also provide UK research scientists and others with services and facilities in atmospheric science through our FAAM Airborne Laboratory (based around a highly modified BAE 146 aircraft), the Atmospheric Measurement and Observation Facility (providing major ground-based observing systems such as radars), the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (providing data management and analysis services) and the Computational Modelling Services (providing access to computational models and analysis tools).
NCAS research and services are provided by a dedicated team of around 120 permanent staff, supported by a further 110 fixed term staff. All NCAS staff are employed by and embedded within their local institutions, including the universities of Leeds, Manchester, York, Reading and Cranfield, as well as the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
A fixed term opportunity to cover a temporary resource gap has become available within the NCAS Communications Team, based at the NCAS headquarters, University of Leeds. As Communications Officer you will work as part of a team to communicate in effective and meaningful ways about NCAS science, skills and infrastructure. The role provides an exciting opportunity to raise the profile of NCAS, to deliver clear and consistent messaging about our world-leading research and innovation, and engage people in the ways we make a positive difference to the environment and society.
