Take part in our member survey
Nautilus uses surveys as a research tool to inform campaigns and Union policy, contribute to our work with other industry bodies, produce guidance, and ensure that we are meeting the needs of members.

The Union also supports surveys run by individual members and external organisations, where their results may impact on our members or contribute to good practice in the wider industry. To speak to Nautilus about collaborating on a survey, please contact the communications department at [email protected].

The outcomes from recent Union surveys can be found in the publications section of the website. Any surveys currently running are listed below.
