This is a great career for challenging and strategic work, and also allows you a great opportunity to travel if that interests you.

The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

The National Institute for Bioprocessing, Research and Training is holding a career day for all those interested in a career in Biopharma on the 14th May 2016 at the NIBRT facility.
