Take part in the 2019 Biennial Researcher Pulse Survey

The Research Staff Office are delighted to announce the launch of the Biennial Researcher Pulse Survey: 

What is it?
This questionnaire combines:
- Questions from the Vitae Careers in Research Online Survey (CROS)
- Questions arising from issues that Research Staff / Reps have raised as being of concern
- Questions about the developments and innovations we are planning in the Research Staff Office

How long does it take?
We anticipate it will take 20-25 minutes of your time – but you can save it along the way and return in case you are interrupted.

Why are you running it?
We currently have ~400 staff employed on research-only contracts at the University.  The more direct data / input we gather from you, the more we will be able to make informed, credible business cases to management – to deliver the support, effect the changes, and create the environment that you, our Research staff here at Sussex want.

What’s in it for me?
As well as influencing things at an institutional level, all participants are eligible to enter a prize draw the RSO are holding to say “thank you” for participating in the Survey:

- The first 50 respondents will be entered into a prize draw for two £25 Amazon vouchers
- All entrants will be entered into a prize draw for ten £10 Amazon vouchers
- If we get over 200 (unique!) respondents, we will add a further twenty £5 vouchers to the draw.
