Physics Graduate

View our available physics graduates’ jobs, physics degree jobs and physics graduate schemes above and apply for roles that are suitable to you.

Physics graduates can apply for a wide range of roles. Physics graduates are often valued for their analytical qualities along with their ability to do mathematical modelling – meaning that it’s not only traditional physics jobs where physicists are in demand. We have often placed physics graduates in data science roles, software and IT-related jobs.

Typically, we have found that there is a strong demand for physics graduates that possess a masters and/or PhD along with exceptional academic grades. If you are an undergraduate there are still roles available, however, many employers are looking for physics graduates with at least a 2:1.
