Sense about Science is a unique campaigning charity that challenges the misrepresentation of science and evidence in public life. We advocate openness and honesty about research findings and work to ensure the public interest in sound science and evidence is recognised in public discussion and policymaking.

We now have a vacancy for a head of fundraising to develop and deliver a fundraising strategy and pipeline, working with the leadership and wider team to ensure we have a healthy, sustainable philanthropic income stream.
