Spin Up Science Ltd ( was incorporated in 2018 to support entrepreneurial scientists, inspire future innovators and establish the UK as a centre for technology commercialisation.

They will manage and organise engagements with key partners and stakeholders, interact with existing supporters and find relevant sources for further sponsorship of the event. The role will also involve leading promoting and publicising the event with our marketing team to generate interest, as well as supporting the event delivery through coordinating staff and attendees on the day.

The role will be remote with the opportunity to meet with the Liverpool based team members regularly, and will also include regular communication with the wider UK team through digital communication (Zoom meetings and Slack). There will also be opportunities for the whole Spin Up Science team to get together face-to-face by holding meetings in either Liverpool or at our head office in Bristol.
