We’re seeking Assistant Fun Scientists to help deliver our award-winning parties to children across Gloucestershire!

These happen mainly at weekends, but you’re at liberty to tell us which days you want to work and which you don’t. It could be an ideal second income – and it’s great fun to boot!

So if you’re confident and outgoing, preferably with some experience working in childcare/education, and have your own transport, then please drop us a line at the email address above with a short resume.

What Happy Parents Say

This is the only club that my daughter enjoys going to – she cries when it’s over!

Vanessa Lewis


My daughter had a science party last year and now takes part in the online sessions. She wants another party this year and never stops talking about science thanks to you.

Mary Walker


So easy from start to finish, great price and all the parents commented on what a great idea the party was. We will definitely be in touch next year. 

Linda Jones


Thank you so much for treating every child with so much care and patience. You have gone above and beyond for my son and worked around all his quirks!
