Consulting: Using Your Research and Critical Thinking Skills

The significant knowledge researchers possess and their skills for critical thinking and communication are all hugely valuable for clients beyond academia.

From advising on the implementation of novel technological or medical solutions, to project management and strategic thinking in finance or social enterprises, consultancy can be a stimulating and rewarding career for those moving beyond academia from any discipline and wanting to have impact.

This panel session will feature individuals who are PhD holders and are now working in consultancy across a range of sectors.

This session will focus on applications for positions beyond academia only.

This event is part of Careers Beyond Academia: Options and Pathways for Researchers, our careers conference for Oxford University research staff and DPhil students, 20-23 March 2023.
