Join the free lunchtime conversation next Wednesday 27th January with Joanna Berry and Ruth Winden on Portfolio Careers for researchers interested in developing a satisfying and challenging career that utilises their diverse skills and interests.
Ongoing changes in the workplace have created new ways of working beyond the traditional one job, one employer model and increasing numbers of graduates enjoy a rewarding ‘portfolio’ career managing multiple jobs and employers within one or more professions. The expertise and high level skills required for research ensure you are well placed for this approach to work.
What is the reality of portfolio working? Could it work for you? How do you follow such a path? Our guest speakers Joanna Berry, currently chief operating officer for Inkspot Science Ltd and lecturer and Ruth Winden, freelance consultant, writer and career coach will share their personal experience of the advantages and challenges of managing a career involving multiple roles and employers.
Postgraduate researchers are requested to book a place through their faculty postgraduate researcher training and development programme. Research staff please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
