“If you enjoy investigating, analysing and communicating information, this could be the career for you.”

A wide variety of industries need researchers to help develop and implement new innovations. Engineering, science, technology, business and the media all benefit from researchers

Information is collected in various forms through observations, forecasts, models and tests and before being analysed. Being at the forefront of their chosen subject, researchers often feedback to government bodies, senior managers and industry leaders.

Researchers work in a lab or office environment and can also conduct field work in various settings. Some organisations employ researchers to help make them run smoother and find new opportunities for business or improvement.
