Creating careers not just jobs is a two-way process between those seeking to build their adventures in science and those seeking to employ them with academia a critical enabler.
This two-day free to attend digital careers conference will be a chance to fill knowledge gaps, debate best practice and connect to enable success. Not your standard job fair, this will be an event bringing panels of students, early career seekers, employers and universities together to engage in six-eight lively one-hour discussions over the course of two days.
Date: Tuesday 30 – Wednesday 31 March 2021
Time: 8:30am – 4:30pm There will be 3 – 4 sessions during this time frame on both days
Why you should attend
Come and discuss career options in the Life Science Industry – both lab and non-lab roles with leading companies within the sector. This will be an opportunity for you to explore and learn the variety of different career paths and the support available on how to make those all-important decisions based on your future.
It is the goal of all universities to educate and guide their graduates towards their careers of choice and more broadly to meet the needs of the employers requiring world class staff. The two-way understanding of what skills are needed and how these can be taught is not always clear. Our vision is to enable this communication between all parties – employers, students and universities.
We recognise that the competition for great staff and the challenges around recruiting and retaining talent continues to grow within the Life Science industry. Find out how investing in your employees and being open to the prospect of developing and moulding your staff will breed loyalty and create an attractive company culture.
