GSE Opportunities: Futures Project Manager and Science Apprenticeship Workshops

Science Apprentices: Skills Development Workshop, Institute of Physics, London

The Institute of Physics, the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Royal Society of Biology invites apprentices to attend a Skills Development Day on 10 October 2019 – London. 

As an apprentice, we understand that working full-time and studying part-time is no easy task. Apprentices become quite good at juggling a multitude of things, whether it’s at work or outside, but this means that you may not always stop and reflect on your achievements and think about your next steps.

The Skills Development Workshop aims to support you in understanding the value of the skills you’ve gained during your apprenticeship, and how to successfully transition from an apprentice to an employee. Former apprentices will share their experiences and talk about where they are at after completing their apprenticeship. Employers will talk about why they recruit science apprentices and the value to their organisation, and an end point assessment organisation will discuss hints and tips for successfully completing the end point assessment

This workshop is designed to help you:

  • understand the value of your apprenticeship and the skills you’ve gained
  • confidently prepare for your end point assessment
  • understand the importance of continually developing to fulfil you potential
  • prepare for possible internal job interviews

Attendance at this event is free –book now

If your organisation is unable to cover your travel expenses, please email: vishanti.fox@iop.org as we will cover all reasonable travel expenses.

For further information, please contact the event organiser.

Closing date: Thursday 3rd October 2019

Futures Project Manager (HEO), Government Office for Science (GOS)

The government faces many opportunities and challenges in the future, some of these are obvious, but many are uncertain. Thinking about where and how people will live in the future, climate change, human and plant diseases, emerging technologies and improving national security are just a few of the changes that drive government activity and permeate public consciousness. They are also just a few of the issues that the Government Office for Science is grappling with on any given day.

The Government Office for Science works at the leading edge of the science-policy interface to ensure that Government, from the Prime Minister and Cabinet down, has access to the best scientific advice possible when developing policy, and has the support required to best engage in strategic long term thinking.

As part of the Government Office for Science, you will support the Government Chief Scientific Adviser (Sir Patrick Vallance) and develop an insight into the working of government at the most senior levels. Typically we work on a portfolio of projects that reflect the GCSA’s priorities, which are complex in nature, and require cross-departmental engagement; as well as creating and supporting connections between officials and the science community to improve the quality and use of evidence in decision making.

Further details available on Civil Service Jobs.
