Join The Society as a Communities and Content Officer to support the engagement of physiological communities, particularly those from underrepresented backgrounds. We seek a passionate individual dedicated to challenging and helping us realize our commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) as we implement our EDI roadmap. You will support the development of resources for our Training Hub, supporting physiologists in establishing their careers, and building a larger, more engaged, and diverse community of members.

The Physiological Society 

The Physiological Society has made significant contributions to our knowledge of biological systems and the treatment of disease. The Society promotes physiology and supports those working in the field by organising world-class scientific meetings, offering grants for research, collaboration and international travel, and by publishing the latest developments in its leading scientific journals.

The position 

In this role, you will develop and deliver resources for the Training Hub, manage the Training Hub portal, and administer EDI-aligned grant schemes, monitoring and evaluating their impact. You will also provide secretariat support to the EDI committee, collect relevant metrics to monitor EDI progress, and recognize sector good practices for EDI. Collaborating with the Communications and Membership Manager, you will drive campaigns to support member recruitment and retention, particularly in growing and emerging communities. Additionally, you will manage the Society’s network of reps, deliver the Rob Clarke award, and support the Governance and Risk Manager for the 150th Anniversary celebrations.

Who are we looking for? 

We are looking for a candidate with experience in developing and curating content for relevant audiences, ideally within a membership organisation or the STEM sector. Experience managing an online member platform for training resources, excellent organisational abilities, and a proactive problem-solving approach are essential. The candidate should also have experience maintaining professional relationships, working both independently and collaboratively, and a clear commitment to advancing EDI goals.

What can we offer you?

We offer great benefits including 30 days holiday (including our Christmas office closure days); non-contributory pension scheme; private medical insurance; life assurance; flexible working; and, excellent training and development opportunities.

We are committed to actively promoting equality, diversity and inclusivity. To this end we would welcome applications from individuals from underrepresented groups, including minoritised communities and applicants with a disability, to better reflect the community we support and help broaden our perspectives.
