Last November I took the leap and moved from a Research Postdoc role to a ‘research support’ Public Involvement and Engagement role. I won’t deny I was nervous about this move
- Had I just wasted 7 years of my working life focussing on research when I wasn’t going to do it any more? (Turns out no)
- Would my skills be transferable (absolutely)
- Was this the ‘right decision’ (yes!)
I was ditching research for good. Famous last words.
