We're a small organisation with growing reach and sometimes a growing team. From time to time there are opportunities for freelancers, contractors and possibly full-timers to come on board and help us towards a greater provision of the unique things we do. Check out what we're looking for at the moment below. All enquiries to jobs@stemettes.co.uk

Stemettes runs a number of public events, workshops and online outreach activities to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) related careers to girls and female students, using a network of women working in the STEM industry. We enable girls, their parents and other influencers to see the possibilities and make an informed decision about STEM careers - in an attempt to boost the number of women in the UK’s STEM workforce.

We have supporters in the UK Government & EU Commission, industry employers (such as Salesforce, Telefonica/O2, Accenture, Centrica and Deutsche Bank) and fellow STEM outreach organisations and have been featured in Forbes, the BBC, the Guardian, the Observer, the Times and the Huffington Post. Since our inception in February 2013, we have given just under 15,000 girls across the UK and Europe positive experiences with STEM.
