Research Leavers – Next Destinations

The RVC is committed to upholding the principles of The Concordat to support the career development of researchers, and demonstrating that a wide variety of career paths are open to researchers. The ability to move between different paths is key to a successful career.

As well as producing Case Studies, which highlight career progression, we would also like to share ‘Next Destination’ information of previously employed research staff, which highlights opportunities for your own career development and the possible career direction options.
