Climate change, security, energy, food, water, health and migration pose unprecedented and inter-connected challenges. How we manage these, nationally and internationally, will determine success as a nation.
Science and engineering are central to identifying, understanding and addressing these challenges. In order to ensure that the UK Government has access to, and uses the best science and engineering research and advice available for policy development and delivery, the Civil Service is keen to reach out to scientists and engineers to consider working for them. Come along to the ‘Science and Engineering Careers in the Civil Service’ talk plus Q&A on 16 October at 18.00 at The Careers Service.
Dr Rupert Wilmouth, who works for the Government Chief Scientific Advisor, will be talking about his career to date, from his postgraduate studies at Oxford to his present role in the civil service. He will discuss the diverse roles that scientists and engineers play in the civil service and the range of career options that are available, with a particular focus on the revised Science & Engineering Fast Stream which is now aimed at postgraduates with doctorates or master’s degrees.
