Science Oxford is the public-facing part of The Oxford Trust – a charitable trust that was set up over thirty years ago. It’s an exciting place to work, with busy programmes of activity across three core areas of work: enterprise, education and engagement.

The Trust team currently consists of 23 full and part-time people positioned across our Central Office, Schools and LIVE functions. You can Meet our Team here.

Science Oxford is based at the Oxford Centre for Innovation on New Road in the heart of the city, with views looking across West Oxford and the Oxford Castle complex.

We have lots of opportunities for you to get involved with Science Oxford; whether it’s as a volunteer, a science business ambassador or as a member of staff when vacancies come up.
