This conference is organized by the World of Work Network – an interdisciplinary, cross- institution network which brings together doctoral students and early career researchers on the theme of work, employment and industrial relations. To join the network, please email

Our inaugural conference will be held on 13th April 2018. A truly interdisciplinary conference, we will have a mixture of traditional paper presentations and alternative dissemination sessions, meaning that even if you aren't presenting, you will still have the opportunity to discuss your research. You can find out more about these sessions on our website -

We also will be welcoming Professors Melanie Simms (University of Leicester) and Pauline Leonhard (University of Southampton) as well as Ellys Monahan from the Office for National Statistics to Bristol for our panel based plenary session.
