The Careers Committee's focus is to coordinate, support and accelerate SCI's careers activities. The Committee has both advisory roles and delegated responsibilities for administering the SCI Ambassadors Programme, the SCI Mentoring Programme, the Days of Science and Careers events and to support the College of Scholars. It reports to the Board of Trustees (BoT).
The Careers Committee has been established to coordinate the wide ranging activities at SCI that support the career development of our members through its various working groups. Through this programme, SCI provides a range of opportunities for members to gain new skills and insights for their career journeys.
Running since 2016, SCI has a very successful Mentoring programme open to early and mid-career professionals to support members‘ careers through training, development, and employment opportunities.
Entrepreneurial university students have the chance to pitch their business ideas to commercial and technology leaders from our corporate partner network at the Bright SCIdea Challenge. Entry into the competition gives exclusive free training in a range of business areas, with the opportunity to compete for a cash prize for the winning team.
The SCI also hosts several career related meetings every year, for example, the Day of Science and Careers and the College of Scholars day, which give our members the opportunity to actively network with their peers and senior industry representatives.
