Policy Engagement in Practice - External Appointments

About this audio

At a ‘Policy Engagement in Practice’ workshop on 13th March, Laura McAllister and Mari Lloyd-Williams spoke frankly about the many benefits of holding an external appointment (they also mentioned some ‘cons’ too, but they were definitely outnumbered by the ‘pros’). This informative session offers advice to early career researchers and academics on how to build public appointments into their career plans and how the ‘on-paper’ commitment is often far from the reality, but very worthwhile in terms of personal development.
