The Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers (2008) highlighted the importance to improve the employment and support for researchers and researcher careers in higher education in the UK. In light of this, Nottingham Business School (NBS)is committed to establish a long-term career path for early career researchers, not only to attract talented researchers but also to prepare itself to become a strong contender among the prestigious universities in a similar field. To achieve this ambition, NBS is interested in understanding early career researchers’ current professional and career development as well as the support that they have received at Nottingham Business School. A link to a short survey was sent out to all NBS researchers in July2021 to gather the information for this purpose with a four-weeks of responding window.

This report explains the results from the said survey (the local situation) as well as the outcomes of the comparisons with the national results on the same questions. The national results were extracted from the Career in Research Online Survey (CROS)for all university research staff in the UK from 2013 to 2019.The CROS was also conducted to understand early career researchers' experiences, career aspiration, professional development, and career development opportunities. It is necessary to point out that unlike survey conducted for NBS researchers, the CROS surveyed researchers form the individual university as a whole rather than focused on a particular department or school in the university.
