BIS is seeking two volunteers to co-chair the BIS NextGen Network

The British Interplanetary Society is seeking two volunteers to join the BIS NextGen Network (NGN) as Co-Chairs, leading the fantastic NGN Organising Team to grow the Network and work closely with the BIS.  These roles offer rewarding and professional skill-building experience.

This is an amazing opportunity for two dynamic individuals to, not only build and demonstrate their own leadership skills, but to support and develop the interests of many young professionals and enthusiasts, recognising and harnessing talent and connecting the NextGen members to the wider Space community, through the support of the BIS.


Application Deadline: Friday 1st July


The British Interplanetary Society are looking for two young and dynamic individuals to take over the reins from the current co-chairs, Harriet Brettle and Jenna Tiwana, who have been at the helm since the NextGen Network (NGN) was founded in the Spring of 2021.

The NGN’s mission is to connect, inspire and empower students and young professionals aged 18-35 in the space community.

With the support of the British Interplanetary Society, the NGN, through networking, events and career development advice, can bring the next generation of the space community together.

Founded in 1933, the British Interplanetary Society is the world’s longest-established organisation devoted to promoting astronautics and the use and exploration of space. The BIS continues to be actively involved in education and outreach, with the NextGen Network providing an essential role in developing and connecting the next generation of space professionals.
