Ethical Employers Contacts List

The organisations listed provide one or more of the following:

  • employment for scientists and engineers in an area considered ‘ethical’
  • training courses for scientists and engineers in areas considered ‘ethical’
  • specific information concerning employment in the ‘ethical’ area in which they work.
     

If you think your organisation deserves to be in this list, please send an email including your organisation’s contact details to info@sgr.org.uk

N.B. It is important for prospective employees or students to check that any organisation to whom you might apply for a job or course is ‘ethical’ as you yourself define it. Everyone has a different definition of ‘ethical’, hence SGR cannot guarantee that any organisation listed here conforms to everyone’s personal definition.

Since SGR is a UK organisation, the main focus of this list is on UK employers etc. However, there is also a small International Section.
 


Index
