Communications Assistant, Society for Endocrinology
"After completing a BSc in Biology, I knew I wanted a science-related job outside of a traditional academic environment. For this reason, I decided to study for the MSc in Science Communication, after which I rapidly secured a role as Communications Assistant for the Society for Endocrinology, a small organisation dedicated to advancing the science of hormones.
"The MSc at the University of Sheffield gave me invaluable skills which I use every day, such as the ability to digest complex scientific concepts into concise, accurate copy for a press release. By publicising great science, I play an active part in keeping people well informed on the latest developments in medicine and human biology, which makes my job exciting and rewarding."
