The CIEHF’s career day this year will cater for a wide range of people, whether you’re just taking your first tentative steps into work or whether you have an established career in another discipline but are looking for a new direction or more options.

Maybe your interest has been piqued by learning about ergonomics and human factors in your work. Maybe you see the potential for a change of direction into an exciting area that offers you the chance to gain knowledge and develop professionally while directly improving the safety and wellbeing of people and increasing business potential.

Often it’s an obvious extension to your current career, from a healthcare background or engineering, for example. Or maybe you’re looking for a complete change which will reinvigorate you and provide an exciting departure.

Visit the Jobs Fair

You can visit stands and talk to representatives from major organisations looking for people like you. You can find out about the type of work the organisations do, what they are looking for and how you can fill your skills gap.

Find out more about all the organisations during our quick fire ’90 Second Stories’ session where each of them has just 90 seconds to explain what they do and to persuade you to come and talk to them!

The following organisations will be waiting to meet you. Click on their logos to find out more about them.

Find out what it’s like to work in different sectors

You will be able to hear from ergonomists and human factors specialists in research and practice that work in different sectors.
