Research staff have access to services from the Careers and Employability Service to support them in exploring and managing their careers, whether in or outside academia.
Workshops for research staff are held at the Careers and Employability Service. Topics covered include general career management skills and approaches, academic and non academic CV preparation, and interview skills. These workshops can also be offered to specific research groups or research staff networks across the University.
Individual guidance interviews can be booked by calling the Careers and Employability Service Reception on ext 13680.
Guidance interviews are confidential and offer an opportunity to:
- discuss specific plans or career concerns
- work on job applications and interview preparation
Interviews last for approximately 45 minutes and are available at various times throughout the week.
Staff nearing the end of their contracts may also continue to use the guidance service for six months after the final date of their contract of employment with the University.
