Page 1: Survey Information and Privacy Notice

A key finding of the SLSA's Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Survey Report (2022) was that trends towards precarious employment practices in the higher education sector are a concern for the socio-legal community, and in particular for PGRs and ECRs.

This survey aims to help the SLSA gain a better understanding of the challenges precariously employed members face in order to identify ways of supporting them.

The survey has 14 questions and should take 5-10 minutes to complete. Responses are encouraged from any interested member of the SLSA community - you do not need to be precariously employed currently to take the survey.

This survey has received ethical approval from the University of Leicester.
