Come to this two-part event where you will have the chance to explore your strengths, career motivators and develop your understanding of what non-academic employers are looking for.
Following this interactive workshop we will have a panel Q&A, discussing professional careers in Higher Education, outside of traditional academic teaching. Learn more about roles available, why they are a good fit for PhD graduates and speak to some University staff actually doing the jobs!
