Coffee and Careers

Each month we welcome a speaker from a different career area to talk about their career path, to give you an insiders view of their job and to give you top tips for following in their footsteps. Many of our researchers have gone into careers as a direct result of contact with a Coffee and Careers speaker - so come along and make the most of this great opportunity to meet informally with a range of professionals. And with coffee and freshly-baked cookies available too - what could be better?
