Current Employees Perspective:

I joined the EPSRC in November 2016 as an apprentice. My team were amazing and supported me through my college work and my move to the organisation. There is no one at EPSRC that isn’t willing to answer any questions and support a new member of staff. The role itself is very varied and you won’t find another job like this. Working within this role I had a number of great opportunities to work on projects and really show my full potential. This is a great organisation with flexible working hours that you can fit around any lifestyle. I have grown and developed immensely in my personal life and in my career as a result of working at EPSRC and I would highly recommend this job to anyone looking to start a new career.
