Having a few minutes of spare time today and not wanting to sit around twiddling my thumbs, I thought I’d have a nosy on CareersLink and see what might be on offer for our postgrads. Here’s a couple of vacancies to pique your interest and encourage you to go exploring further. Keep an open mind in your explorations – you might find suitable opportunities even if they aren’t specifically targeted at masters or PhD students.
