Use the {html} macro and put this script between that.

Hallo Craig and Renjith

Renjith is right: the HTML macro will do the trick. I'm just adding a note that the macro is disabled by default on Confluence. The site administrator can enable it.

It's disabled by default because of the security implications of allowing people to add HTML and Javascript to a page. Before enabling it, it's worth considering whether all the potential authors are trusted. People will be able to use the HTML macro in comments and blog posts as well as on the page.

Here's the documentation:

I hope this helps. :)

Cheers, Sarah

Thanks for the answers, the comment regarding the HTML marco being disabled by default was an important note!

The alternative to the {html} macro would be to add it as a User Macro. That way, it is safely output on the page, but you don't require opening yourself to other, more malicious JavaScript.
