20% of UK Workforce has a Science Job

The Financial Times has reported that approximately one fifth of the UK workforce has a science based job.

5.8 million people are scientists or use science skills daily, the Science Council has discovered in a recent study. The number includes ‘secondary science workers’ such as nurses or software engineers. Scientists were found to be in industries as diverse as education, finance and farming, as well as more traditional scientific sectors, such as the chemical industry.

Chief executive of the Science Council, Diana Garnham, has said that secondary science roles can be “found literally everywhere in the economy.” The research indicates that by 2030, there could be over 7 million people involved in science in some way, prompting Diana Garnham to say “the research begins to explain… why there is such huge demand for people with science qualifications.”

CK Science Sponsor Kilimanjaro Climb

Mount_Kilimanjaro_2007CK Science, the leading specialist scientific recruitment consultancy, will be sponsoring a charity climb up Kilimanjaro.

The climb has been organised to raise money and awareness for children’s hospice, Hope House in Oswestry. It takes over £4million each year to run the hospice and they are currently caring for over 320 terminally ill children and their families. This doesn’t just include the physical, psychological and spiritual care for the children affected, but also bereavement support, in all its forms, for the siblings and other family members left behind. Hope House also offers bereavement services to the larger community, helping a wide number of children over an extremely traumatic time in their lives. At this time 93 families are receiving post bereavement support.

DSCF0965Hope House currently received only £300,000 of funding from the government each year and the other £3,700,000 is raised by events such as this.

It is hoped that the Kilimanjaro climb will raise a minimum of £4,000. This money will go a small way to help the staff of Hope House ease the final days of terminally ill children.

If you would like to make a donation, please go to www.justgiving.com and search under TRUDY KEDDIE.
