Ever wanted to know what we get up to on the RSC graduate scheme? In this blog, members of our graduate scheme describe some of the interesting (or unusual!) activities and projects they are working on, as well as what it is like to work in a variety of departments across the RSC.

Membership Services

My second rotation in Membership Services has been an enjoyable insight into our community; through working with the Diversity, Careers and Networks teams, I now have a much deeper understanding of the needs of our members and what services we provide to meet them.

Alongside producing the monthly Networks Newsletters, in this rotation I coordinated the 40th edition of the Trends in Remuneration Survey and worked on all aspects of 175 Faces of Chemistry - an exciting project that showcases diversity in the chemical sciences. I’ve written many profiles and discovered that it’s a fantastic way of learning about the work of outstanding chemists and is a true insight into their lives, career paths and diversity related issues.
I also worked on an exciting creative project in partnership with a lovely team of developers at Texavi. I’m very happy to say that my nutritional game idea was released earlier this year as a new mobile and tablet application, Elements of Nutrition! (Let me know if you can beat my top score of 1460!) I’m now continuing my work in the science games world on a new release in time for Chemistry week, better get your pirate hats at the ready for some swashbuckling fun!
