Participants needed for university study

A student at Warwick University is looking for participants for their MA dissertation on how the needs of LGBTQ+ service industry workers can be met in career coaching. They would ideally like to interview between 4-6 people who are:

  • Aged 18 or over
  • Identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community
  • Currently work in a customer service role (e.g. retail, sales, bar work, restaurant work) or have done so within the past five years

Taking part will involve having a 30–60-minute interview with them about your experiences of working in a customer service role and any thoughts about how that could impact a career coaching session. All responses will be pseudonymised so anything you share will not be traced back to you.

If you want to take part, please email They will be happy to answer any questions and will of course provide a consent form and participation information leaflet to everyone who wants to take part.
