GSE Profession

Induction Pack

Directory

This page provides members access to the Directory that forms part of the GSE Induction Pack. We have designed this resource to make it easy for members to access scientific and engineering expertise from accross the GSE Profession. This will help Profession members to embody science and engineering in everything they do, which is a key part of civil service reform.

To use the Directory, you can either scroll through the table, or you can use the search bar below. Results are filtered automatically whilst you type.

About the Induction Pack

The GSE Induction Pack is designed to help new and existing members get the most out of being a GSE Member. It provides members with useful tools, makes them aware of the communities you can join, explains key terms, provides details on who to contact for scientific and engineering expertise, and helps you to become more involved.
