The 'Employability lens on the Vitae Researcher Development Framework for careers outside of academia' is a new publication by Vitae, which highlights the transferable skills typically developed by researchers that are most frequently desired by employers. This employability lens enables employers to consider a pool of experienced professionals, and the technical expertise and high level skills they can bring to an organisation.
‘It took me a while to realise the call for my PhD wasn't just the technical knowledge that I picked up, but it was also the transferable skills which you don't really see at the time...’
Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE, Space Scientist
The employability lens can help researchers to:
- understand the key knowledge, behaviours and attributes typically developed during their research
- identify skills that might be of interest to employers
- provide evidence of the transferability of their skills in their CV, in job applications and at interviews
