Institution: The Royal Veterinary College
Researchers are key members of academic staff. They are central to the College’s status as the leading centre for veterinary research in England, as well as its global aspirations. Beyond this, the College recognises that researchers make many other important contributions, for example in undertaking valuable research support, teaching and supervision duties, and as a vibrant group within the wider RVC community.
Following the launch of the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers, the College developed a Concordat Code of Practice and Guide which demonstrates the Colleges commitment to the provision of timely and effective support for Research Staff and their chosen career paths.

The courses and workshops outlined in our programme are designed to meet the needs of all groups of staff within the College and offer a wide variety of development opportunities in five key areas:
• Health & Safety
• Information Technology
• Leadership & Management
• Skills & Knowledge
In our 2009/10 training programme, we introduced a section specific to the development of researchers, in response to principle 4 of the Concordat. This section has continued to develop following feedback received from research staff, line managers and principal investigators.
Research staff may also attend any of the other Staff Training & Development courses offered in the programme.

Institution: University College LondonThis is a brief summary of the organisational model that we have adopted in order to work more closely with Schools, Faculties and Departments and 'partner' with them in understanding and providing for the needs of their particular staff in a ‘bespoke’ way where appropriate. This positions us better to target our resource towards meeting real needs, while striving for enhanced alignment between UCL’s research strategy and individual aspirations. This new model also enables us to work more closely in partnership with other key people deployed at a Faculty or Department level, such as Research Facilitators, Research Leaders, HR Consultants, Faculty Managers etc.

Institution: Institute of EducationWouldLikeToTeach was created to help doctoral researchers and research staff find opportunities to get teaching experience in Higher Education. Similarly, it was created to help Heads of Departments and Course Leaders to find people who are able to deliver teaching on an hourly-paid basis in Higher Education. Those ECRs looking for teaching opportunities need to create a profile on the site by clicking on the register link at the bottom-left hand of the page. They are then prompted to complete a profile so that it can be searched by potential employers. Currently, registration is resitrcited to members of the Bloomsbury Colleges (i.e. Birkbeck, IoE, SAS, SOAS, LSH&TM, Royal Veterinary College, School of Pharmacy, UCL). Employers do not need to register. Instead, they can either 'Browse teachers' or they can 'Search teachers' where you can specify keywords for particular search fields.
