If you would be interested in working at the facility and helping establish this new venture then we want to hear from you – but before you decide, maybe you want to know a little more about what it will mean to work at the Grassholme Observatory?
You will be forgiven for thinking that you will need a degree in astrophysics to work at the observatory, well that’s not the case at all. Firstly, the facility exists to educate and inspire the public into all things astronomy, that said, the public don’t all possess degrees in astronomy or are scientists – so not all of our staff have to either. A wide and varied degree of positions will become available from professional astronomes to science explainers and assistants. Some positions will not require you to have any science experience at all, we will train you and along the way you will see some of the most inspirational objects in the universe and get to listen to renowned speakers and interact with the public. Maybe you can make the drinks and help guide and welcome guests or maybe you do have astronomy experience and will be able to give talks and guide them around the night sky. Either way working at the observatory will be a truly magical experience.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at Grassholme Observatory then please contact us on the link below and we’d love to hear from you.
All job opportunities will appear here in due course.
