You might think that you know what you're getting into with science and technology - fields like biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications and engineering have existed seemingly since the year dot, so it can be easy for those contemplating science jobs to forget the truly 'living and breathing', continually evolving nature of science and technology.

For a reminder of just how exciting it can be to get picked by a science recruitment agency for a sought-after and important role, just consider the latest frontiers to which you could make an active contribution.

The effects on food crops of climate change

Climate change isn't just about the prospect of higher temperatures and us all ending up underwater - it's also about the very sustainability of our planet's food supply. Become a plant scientist, and you could play an instrumental role in the development of drought-resistant crop strains.

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation

Whereas the replacement of heart valves has traditionally been done by surgically opening the chest cavity, if the process is done by chest catheter, only a small incision is required. Since this was achieved by a French doctor in 2002, it has gained popularity across dozens of countries when faulty aortic valves need to be treated.

The acidification of the ocean

As the atmosphere of our planet becomes ever-more concentrated with carbon dioxide, so the amount of carbonic acid in our oceans is also increasing, decreasing the pH and even dissolving the shells or skeletons of some organisms. Scientists are still grappling to properly understand the evolving chemical composition of our oceans - but who is to say that you won't contribute to the next big breakthrough in this area?

Galileon cosmology

The universe has long held seemingly infinite mystery and fascination for scientists, who are still trying to explain not only why it is still getting bigger, but also doing so ever-quicker. Attempts to shed some light on the matter have included the modification of how we mathematically treat gravity's effects at greater distances, with the galileon scalar field enabling self-accelerating solutions.

Synthetic biology

This is one emerging scientific field that even many laypeople are familiar with already - after all, how could the design and construction of biological parts, systems and devices possibly not capture the wider imagination? Recent years have seen the creation of "synthetic life" - DNA that is digitally created before its printing and insertion into a living bacterium - and as a scientist in this field, you could be perfectly placed to direct and influence the next wave of developments.

Looking to change the world? Science jobs certainly allow you to do that, with those in the aforementioned fields offering some of the best possibilities of all. 


While we know well ourselves here at Hyper Recruitment Solutions how exciting, fascinating and rewarding science jobs at all levels are, we are equally aware that the science and technology sectors have long been burdened by a dull reputation that simply doesn't reflect their everyday reality.

If you are considering why you should choose a career in a science or technology field such as pharmacology, bioinformatics or immunology, here are a few reasons that may help you to make your decision.

A chance to change the world

Holders of science jobs have been at the forefront of some of the most significant developments underpinning how we live, how we eat, how we sleep and even how we die.

Whether you find a role in biotechnology, medical, telecommunications, engineering, food technology or all manner of other science or technology fields, you can be sure of helping to shape our world.

It's not just for academics

The stereotypical image associated with STEM fields has often been one of staid academia. But in a world in which science and technology are now widely understood to be instrumental to everything from smartphones and tablets to medicine and in-car satellite navigation, even the once-stuffiest areas are now being thrust into the mainstream.

That trend is being further encouraged by the rise of such science and technology-related TV programmes as The Gadget Show and The Big Bang Theory.

Creativity is vital

Have you long thought that science recruitment agencies are only interested in brainboxes? Think again. Imperative to all of the big science and technology breakthroughs, past and present, has been imagination and creativity.

If new innovations are to keep being achieved, new entrants into science and technology will be required who are able to dream up original ideas and theories, whether they are working on a new food or drink, discovering a potentially life-changing drug or devising exciting engineering solutions.

You'll never be bored

Returning to our observation at the top of this piece, technology and science jobs are rarely the dry, uninteresting roles that they have often been portrayed as being.

How could that be the case, when you could be developing a new chocolate bar, researching ways of making cars more eco-friendly or gazing at the stars? If you want to be at the forefront of the latest developments that are coming to define the 21st century, science is the field to be in.

Whether you are seeking openings in research and development, packaging and sustainability, procurement or any of a wide range of other science and technology functions and fields, allow Hyper Recruitment Solutions to be your science recruitment agency partner.

Make 2014 your year, get that job you’ve always wanted! 

Love it or hate it, there’s no denying it - social media is everywhere! With Facebook boasting over 1.11 billion users and Twitter over 500 million, there’s no doubt about it, social media is certainly very powerful!

So why use it? Well firstly, because it’s free! Whether or not it will remain free in the long term is uncertain, but for the immediate future it is so, if you are a start up company or small growing business it’s definitely worth capitalising on this. Promoting your company’s new products and special offers through traditional means such as newspapers, television or billboards ads can be expensive. So the world of social media is the perfect place for advertising your business to thousands of customers without paying a penny!

It’s a well known fact, that word of mouth is the most effective way of promoting your business and products, but social media take can it one step further... With so many people in one place, positive feedback can be instant and easily shared amongst thousands of people at the touch of a button! Of course this also stands for negative feedback so it’s worth bearing this in mind to!

Don’t forget, it’s also worth taking into considering that your social media strategy must be more than just a sales pitch if you are to fully engage with potential customers. No one enjoys talking to an automated answering machine and the same applies in the social media world. There’s nothing worse than having an inactive account that doesn’t interact with customers! Therefore, if used skilfully, social media can provide an opportunity for your company to directly engage with your customers on a more informal and personal level. For example, why stop at simply informing them about your new products, why not encourage your customers to tweet pictures of themselves actually using it! Social media is a great way to think and be different from your competitors. Instead of just trying to get customers through the door, taking money and forgetting they ever existed, why not continue the conversation?

Final thoughts, have you ever wondered what will happen to this new online generation in the coming years? Yes, you’ve guess it, your customer base! So, even if you’re new to the social media world, it’s becoming essential that you have an online presence and embrace this new technology! 

Why not take a look at the HRS social media accounts and see how we interacting and engaging with our audiences. What are we talking about? Are we connecting with you?
