Have you graduated from GCU in the last 5 years with a Law, Business, Management or Social Science degree?


The Warwick Institute of Employment Research is looking for Arts, Humanities & Social Science graduates from the last five years to join one of their online focus groups, which will run in June, to talk about where they are employed, the jobs they do, and the skills they demonstrate. The British Academy is funding this project and believes that there is a growing need for a better understanding of whether the UK has got the right balance of skills, skill levels and disciplines for the future.

To thank you for your time, you will receive a £10 Amazon voucher for your participation.

The researchers are recruiting graduates from undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS) subjects to take part in several small online focus groups. The focus groups will centre around work and workplace skills, and will be an opportunity for you to share your experiences since leaving university.

The research will feed into the British Academy’s Flagship Skills project, which aims to articulate the skills that are inherent to the study of AHSS subjects and the value they make to the individual and the wider labour market and society. The research will investigate what sorts of jobs AHSS graduates do, the industries and sectors where they are employed and the skills they use in these jobs.

The researchers are interested in talking to graduates from both undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The subjects covered by the research include creative arts, social studies, law, business and management, mass communications and documentation, languages, and historical and philosophical studies.

How to join in: Please take a few minutes to find out more about the research by visiting this webpage. If you are interested in taking part in a focus group you can register your interest by completing the consent form on the sign-up page.

Your contribution to this research is invaluable. Please be assured that all replies will be held securely and will be anonymous – no individual will be identified at any stage. Thank you for your help and we wish you all the best for the future.
