Self-employment
“15% of UK workers are self-employed in the UK and it’s been rising almost every year since 1979.”
Whether it’s a portfolio working, a new challenge, a way to generate a second income, or the next stage of your academic career, self-employment presents both opportunities and risks. This session explores the process around this increasingly common form of work.

Starting a Business
“Almost 99.2% of the 4.9 million companies in the UK are small with less than 50 people”
If you are considering developing your research interests into a business, then this session explores the path ahead. The setting up, running and developing a limited company can be easy, but first you need to understand the available options and how to ensure it provides protection and funding opportunities.
