At the University of Leeds, we value all career options equally and want to help you make informed, sound and confident career choices and decisions, whichever path you choose.
The University of Leeds fully commits to the Researcher Development Concordat, which stipulates the responsibilities of our institution, funding bodies, research leaders and yourself in facilitating your career development – whatever your longer-term career aspirations might be.
Here at Leeds, you are part of a vibrant research community and a supportive community of alumni who continue to make strong contributions in many walks of life, and in many parts of the world: from academia to industry, in the charity sector, in private and public sector organisations, to start-ups. And some of them chose to start their own businesses or portfolio careers by combining their many talents, interests and ideas.
Research careers are rewarding and demanding in equal measure. At any given time, you might wonder how to manage your career well and achieve your career goals. But especially now, considering the immense global health and economic challenges we face all over the world, fulfilling your career aspirations might feel more uncertain than ever before. The university offers many choices to develop as a researcher and we are here to help you do exactly this.
You will find an increasing number and variety of careers materials created for all researchers at Leeds, from PGR to senior leaders. We are continuously sourcing, developing and adding fresh learning materials for you to engage with, learn from, and implement.
