Cambridge Science Centre seeking new CEO
Chief executive Helen Slaski has stepped down from her role at Cambridge Science Centre. She announced her plans to retire earlier in the year and the trustees of the Science Centre have now begun the process to find her replacement.
Chair of the Board of Trustees, Dr David Cleevely said: “Under Helen’s leadership the Cambridge Science Centre has established a reputation for quality STEM engagement with children throughout Cambridgeshire and beyond.
“During her time at the centre, whatever the challenges, Helen has demonstrated an unswerving commitment to developing and improving our ways of working and introduced inspiring new educational products and services such as the popular STEMtots and the range of VirtualSchoolTrip products that have enabled sustained engagement during the lockdowns.
“These, alongside the success of our regular public sessions, community events and schools outreach programmes, shows the commitment Helen has had to ensure all our young visitors are introduced to science and have access to exciting, new things to do and try out.”
A replacement is expected in post in Spring 2022. In the interim, co-founder and Trustee, Dr Chris Lennard, will be supporting the management team as it continues to deliver inspiring STEM educational interventions throughout East Anglia and beyond.
The closing date for applications is 17th January 2022. Further details on the Cambridge Science Centre website.
