DiatomDave Fun Science Cheltenham

We provide award-winning, science-themed edutainment to children aged 4-11 all over Gloucestershire

Are you outgoing and great with kids? Could you blow their little minds with eye-popping experiments? Fun Science Cheltenham is seeking entertainers to deliver its award-winning science-themed parties for ages 4-11 around Gloucestershire.

Make the birthday boy or girl’s day with a fizz, pop and zap as you do colourful chemical reactions, whip up candy floss and light yourself on fire to howls of excitement (it’s safe, we promise)!

All of the kit is provided and packed for you, along with instructions – all you do is collect it, deliver the party and return it for cleaning. You will be fully trained in each party plan and need not have a science background, but should be able to understand and explain simple concepts like pressure and electricity at a primary school level.

It is expected that you are able to converse confidently with both children and adults. You will have an enthusiastic nature, which will be used to convey excitement to the children at Fun Science events. You should be organized and punctual, responding to quickly to emails and arriving on time for events.

Please note that this role is initially freelance, so you’d be responsible for your own income tax (if applicable). You must have demonstrable experience of working with children aged 4-11. A valid DBS certificate and first aid training would be beneficial, but not essential.

You must have your own car, as parties can be anywhere in Gloucestershire and will require you to transport one or two boxes of kit. Work is mainly at weekends – you tell us when you’re available for work and when you aren’t.

We need you to start ASAP, so do ask for more info if this sounds like a job for you! Apply by email to Diatom Dave with a short resume, emphasizing any experience working with children or in other customer-facing roles.
