Skill development programmes
A programme for DPhil students and research staff
The Career Design and Development workshop programme is aimed at researchers who are considering options beyond an academic research career. The programme is designed to open the space for creative thinking and equip you with insights and tools for developing your career with confidence. This is an integrated programme consisting of three in-person workshops, of which you need to attend all three on 4 May, 25 May and 15 June, all taking place from 14:00-16:30, at the Careers Service, 56 Banbury Road.
An innovative skills programme for RAs and postdocs
The purpose of the Researcher Strategy Consultancy programme is to provide early career researchers with an opportunity to develop the core employability skills required for a transition into analytical, business, or policy roles in a range of sectors. Participants volunteer some of their own time to work in small teams, over a 3-month period, to address a strategic issue or business opportunity for a client organisation. The next programme is expected to run September - December and applications will open later in Trinity term.
▶ Get consulting experience on The Oxford Strategy Challenge
Take part in the Oxford Strategy Challenge, our hackathon inspired consultancy challenge, to gain valuable employability skills. Current research students (DPhils and students on postgraduate research courses) are welcome to apply. On the programme, you have the opportunity to develop skills in working effectively as part of a remote team, managing a client relationship, collecting data under time pressure, reacting quickly to unexpected changes, and presenting your findings to a client.
