Your opportuntity to contribute to the GSE blog
A reminder that the GSE Team are always looking for volunteers to contribute to the GSE blog. You can do this in two ways:
- By contributing to a GSE opportunities blog post. These are issued every two weeks and contain vacancies, events and learning and development opportunities that are of interest to the GSE community. Keep an eye on this blog for examples, but they should be a summary of no more than 100 words, with contact details or weblink and a closing date.
- By writing your own blog post. Topics can be anything that is of interest to GSE members. It should be informal in style and written by a named individual who wants to start a conversation with the GSE community. Consult current blog posts when deciding on length and tone of the post.
If you are interested in contributing to the blog in either of the ways outlined above, then please get in touch with the GSE team: GSE@go-science.gsi.gov.uk
Please note, we reserve the right to amend or reject submissions we do not feel meet our criteria.
