Communications from across the RSC
How do you view careers in different sectors, and the RSC as an employer?
The survey will help us to understand more about how our members view careers in different sectors and, and how people see the Royal Society of Chemistry as an employer. The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete. If you complete the survey you will have the opportunity to enter the prize draw to win an iPad mini or £250 Amazon vouchers.
Please click on this link to launch the survey.
The survey is being conducted by Bernard Hodes UK, a consultancy which specialises in helping employers to attract and retain talented staff. Your answers will be treated as confidential and will only be used for research purposes.  
Do you know anyone who is interested in Science Communication?
We have two science communication competitions at the moment: Take 1… minute for chemistry in health and the Chemistry World science communication competition. The Take 1 competition is a fantastic opportunity for undergraduate, postgraduate, post-doctorate students and early career researchers (both members and non-members) to engage with the Royal Society of Chemistry, whilst the Chemistry World competition is open to everybody, and the winners will be rewarded with a £500 cash prize.
I hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Kind regards,
On behalf of the Networks Team
