DESPITE turbulent economic times, careers in science are holding their own. In 2019, salaries for scientists and engineers dropped in some areas of the UK. But by other measures STEM jobs seem to be blossoming, according to the 2020 STEM Market Survey, produced by SRG in association with New Scientist Jobs. Workers within STEM report having long, fulfilling careers and nearly all science students say they intend to enter the industry themselves.
The survey, published last month, looks at the work scientists, engineers and clinicians do and how they feel about it. It also gives insights into those all-important salary numbers and what employers can do to attract and retain candidates.
The survey reached nearly 3000 people working in a spectrum of roles in science, engineering and clinical settings. Of those in industry, the most well represented sectors were pharmaceuticals, biotech and chemicals manufacturing.
Despite the current situation we are in with regards to COVID-19, this webinar will help you plan for when the time is right for hiring. It will help you understand workforce expectations and motivations and what you as a business can do to get ahead of the competition when the situation shifts.
