Consultancy is an interesting and challenging career option. It can be a particularly attractive option for experienced chemical scientists, in mid to late career, when they have built up a substantial body of expertise.
Chemical science consultants can offer services across a wide range of technical fields and associated areas, including:
- business development and marketing
- people development
- organisational strategy and policy
- legal services
- health and safety
Like all career options, consultancy has its pros and cons. The benefits include a more flexible working pattern, greater autonomy and using your expertise to help other organisations succeed. Some drawbacks are risk of isolation, reduced networks and fewer opportunities for professional development.
