This session is for anyone interested in knowing more about roles in the science communication and public engagement sector. You could be looking for your first job in this area, looking to move into this area from another field, wondering what your next job in this area might be, or wondering what it's like to be an event organiser, Head of Public Engagement, or work for a learned society or university.

It's a fantastic opportunity to hear from people who have held a range of roles within science communication and public engagement over the past eight years, and pick their brains about what they look for when interviewing candidates, which bits of their job they enjoy the most, and ask them for advice.

During this session you will have the chance to meet people with interesting and varied roles from across the science communication and public engagement sector, and (in groups of up to 5 people) have around 20 minutes with each person to chat about their role, and ask them questions.
