Jobs & Volunteering

We The Curious is a science centre and educational charity on Bristol Harbourside. It’s an interactive space where everyone can get creative with science, ask questions and explore ideas together. Our work is driven by our Manifesto, which you can download below to get more of an idea of what we're all about.

As a charity we work with partners, locally and nationally, supporting people to be inquisitive and collaborate. We bring people together to develop new skills, improve their confidence and wellbeing and explore what is possible with positive action. 

Our vision is of a future where everyone is included, curious and inspired to build a better world together. 

We couldn't do any of this without the knowledge, talent and commitment of our staff and volunteers.
