Broadening Your Appeal in a Wider Job Market


You may be wondering what other jobs are out there, but success in the job market is not based on your knowledge of jobs, but how well you know yourself! This session will help you to explore academic and non-academic options, and signal potential ways forward and resources to help you build understanding of your strengths and options. This session is for you if:

  • You have been working in the university sector for so long that you do not know what you’re good at
  • You hear ‘transferable skills’ being mentioned but do not know how the term applies to you
  • You wonder where researchers go when they leave their current role

Who should attend?
University of Warwick Research Active Staff (staff on Research-focused, Teaching-focused and Research and Teaching contracts).

Leadership and Management Development do not accept applications from PGRs. PGRs should refer to the Research Development at the Doctoral College.

Workshop enables participants to:

  • Interpret recent publications on researchers and the job market.
  • Review the Researcher Development Framework (RDF) and apply it to your employability.
  • Identify the skills commonly sought by employers and propose ways of acquiring them.
  • Compare and contrast different career paths taken by researchers.

Workshop Pre-work:
Any pre-work will be e-mailed or added to the Teams channel for the delegates prior to the workshop.

Learning Hours:

This course takes approximately 2.5 learning hours. This includes any pre-course/programme work, attendance at workshops, experiential (‘on-the’job’) learning, coaching and post-course/programme work.
