Now published: CJS Focus on Employability

10 articles & 1 video presentation make up this incredibly useful publication for those entering the conservation sector but also for people moving around and moving on within their careers.

Articles on: how to choose your path through the sector from CJS. A couple of personal experiences of getting in to conservation work – how they made themselves more employable and got there in the end. National Trust is a huge employer, they provide details on what makes a countryside job application stand out to them. A profile of working in rights of way and how to get in to it from ScotWays. Eva has secured a paid traineeship with TCV, she talks about what she did whilst at university, to gain practical experience. Our video presentation is from Rob, Arbtech MD on just what he is looking for in an employee – you’ll be surprised to find it’s not always practical experience or qualifications. Are colleges doing enough to equip students for the world of work – Sparsholt College thinks so and runs through how they ensure students are ready for careers in conservation. The all-important interview prep is covered by Richard Dodd from Ecology Academy – a must read. And to end, Antony at TEP reflects on his career path and how he moved on and up. The publication also contains adverts for courses and resources to help you become more employable.

The Investment Research Scheme is open to any individual who has achieved a 2.1 in any degree discipline. As a graduate you would spearhead research into new and emerging companies to add to the £262 billion asset management portfolio.

Your research into the emerging firms would take you around the world! Speaking to interesting and exciting individual's as you try to understand a specific business and the world in which it operates.

Through your research as a graduate you would help promote 'actual investing' which isn't centred on the quarterly growth of a firm. Instead, their 10 to 15 year growth potential and their impact on society.
