Dr. Sarah J. Davies

2004 to date. Geology Careers and Personal Development Planning Tutor.

Since taking on the role of Careers Tutor, I have introduced a number of key initiatives including a one-day Geology Careers event (run in February 2007 and 2008) attracting speakers, many of whom are Leicester graduates, from a range of geoscience employers, including Aggregate Industries, Arcadis GMI, Baker Hughes, British Geological Survey, British Antarctic Survey, CGGVeritas, ExxonMobil, GRM, Halliburton, The Manchester Museum, MJCA, Neftex, Ohm Ltd, Tarmac and the University of Leicester.

This careers event is in addition to a rolling Careers and PDP talks programme with events throughout the academic year. Students receive a lecture about careers during the induction week programme.

I have created a dedicated ‘Geoscience Careers & PDP’ site on Blackboard that is accessible to Geology students at the University of Leicester.

We promote our student attendance at external careers events including, the Geological Society’s annual Careers Day, the London Petrophysics Society Open Day and the Leicestershire Student and Graduate Fair.

My experience as a specialist Careers Advisor for the geosciences is recognised nationally. I have provided a CV workshop at the Geological Society’s annual Careers Day in November (2005-2007), an event that is attended by geoscience employers and over 500 UK University students.
