Join our team

Our branches are run by a diverse mix of volunteers.  As a Branch volunteer you could develop skills in event management, science communication, publicity and fundraising, which can translate directly into career development - especially if you are a student. 

Please Note: Our regional Branches are run by volunteers over 18 years of age. If your enquiry is about young people or CREST, please contact crest@britishscienceassociation.org
