Online Careers Conference

Join us at our next virtual careers conference to explore the diversity of careers within the space sector.

The National Space Academy will be hosting online careers conferences for students and parents/guardians, thanks to the UK Space Agency. These conferences will allow viewers to find out about some of the most exciting job opportunities within an ever-growing industry. Jobs within the sector range from working with satellites to help predict the weather and farmers to better understand their crops to designing and building rockets to becoming a space lawyer. 

The UK Space Industry has an annual turnover of £16.4 billion and employs over 45,000 people. It continues to grow year on year. The UK Space Innovation and Growth Strategy has a target of achieving 10% of the global space market, which is estimated to be £400 billion by 2030. 

These interactive online careers conferences will explore the range of careers available before delving further into the career choices of three of our speakers. Looking at how their career journey brought them to where they are today and what it is they do daily. This will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A session with the speakers.
