Salary and Benefits Survey 2020 – Coming Soon…

We will be conducting the third salary and benefits survey to location practitioners, with the help of Red Tiger Talent, our latest new sponsors. The link to complete the survey will be coming out the first week of January so do keep an eye out for that.

We hope as many of you can take part as possible. Please forward the survey to any colleagues in the site location industry who you think may also be interested in contributing. The more completed surveys, the more robust and useful the results will be.

What are the SLA Student Awards 2018 and who should enter?

The SLA Student Awards are designed to reward final year Undergraduate and Masters students who have achieved excellence in the broad field of location analysis. The award scheme is open to students registered at UK Universities in the 2017/18 academic year and undertaking dissertations or extended projects involving location analysis.

The society will award prizes in two categories:

  • The Undergraduate Award
  • The Masters Award

A winner and runner-up will be selected in each category by an expert panel. Judges will be looking for work that makes both academic and practical contributions to the field. Award winners will be invited to attend a SLA event (in October/November) to meet members, network and collect their certificate and cash prize (winner: £200, runner-up: £100 in both categories). Reasonable travel expenses will be covered by the society.
Students in any subject area are invited to apply providing that they meet the above criteria. Example subjects may include (but are not exclusive to) geography, demographics, GIS, business and management.
