Science and Research
What to expect from a graduate science job
Science encompasses a huge variety of disciplines and as a leading graduate recruiter we cover many of the graduate science jobs available such as:
* Computer science graduate jobs
* Sports science graduate jobs
* Biology graduate jobs
* Life science graduate jobs
* Forensic science graduate jobs
* Pharmaceutical science graduate jobs
* Graduate research jobs
* Graduate qualitative research jobs
Depending on the type of science degree you have chosen there are a numerous paths into a career in science, whether you have a bachelors, masters or a PHD.
Science graduate schemes
There are a number of science graduate schemes available within both the public and private sector. Many government departments and agencies have science graduate schemes that can vary from healthcare to defence. The vast majority of science graduate schemes are employed by private companies, both large and small and across a number of industries from energy to manufacturing and pharmaceuticals. Most graduate schemes require you to have at least a 2:1 and some require graduates to have a masters or a PhD in a science subject.
Within the STEM industry, there is currently a skill shortage, meaning there are now a larger number of graduate science schemes; and as competition for top science graduates is fierce, starting salaries can be competitive, both in large and small organisations. A career in science can be rewarding and challenging. Many employers are looking for certain skills such as logical thinking, problem-solving and numerical skills amongst others – many of which graduates tend to learn or hone during a science degree. If you are looking for a career in science then sign up for our jobs alerts to stay ahead of the game.
As a nationwide graduate recruiter, we display jobs for science graduates from across the country including cities such as London, Cardiff, Edinburgh and many more. https://www.stemgraduates.co.uk/jobs/technology-consulting-and-project-management/
Graduate project management jobs
The world of project management is varied and fast-paced. The role of a project manager is found across almost all industries and sectors. It is also a job that does not always require a specific type of degree. While graduates of business and project management degrees are an obvious choice, having one of these degrees is not a pre-requisite. Employers of graduate project management jobs are generally looking for a certain skillset that includes:
* Excellent organisation skills
* Interpersonal skills, including the ability to motivate people
* Strong communication and organisation skills
* The ability to make decisions under pressure
* Industry and technical knowledge of the project
Roles within project management can include:
* Assistant project manager
* Business change manager
* Junior/senior project manager
* Project coordinator
* Project officer

Aerospace engineering graduate jobs
Aerospace engineering graduate jobs break down into two major overlapping branches; aeronautical engineering - which takes in flight technology within the earth’s atmosphere - and astronautical engineering - which focusses on space technology. Our specialist aerospace graduate recruiters are also frequently able to identify graduate jobs in different industry sectors, dependent upon the modules that graduates have studied. Subjects such as thermodynamic, hydraulic and CAD related modules are highly sought after by a number of employers.
Many aerospace engineering graduate jobs are with large manufacturers, the armed forces, airline companies, NASA, the European Space Agency and the Civil Aviation Authority. This is a competitive industry and many employers are looking for candidates that have at least a 2:1. The type of roles aerospace engineering graduates can apply for include:
- Aerospace engineer
- Maintenance engineer
- Manufacturing systems engineer
- Mechanical engineer
- Test pilot
- Astronautical engineer
Aeronautical engineering graduate jobs
Aeronautical engineering is mainly concerned with aircraft that fly within the earth’s atmosphere. This many include several types of aircraft such as commercial planes, military jets, helicopters and drones. Most jobs will sit within aircraft manufacturers, the military, research organisations and the CAA. With drones becoming an ever-increasing presence, there are now a number of roles for aeronautical engineers in drone companies or in organisations where drone use is a growing market (i.e. delivery companies.)
How to find an automotive, aerospace or aeronautical graduate job
At STEM Graduates, we help place aeronautical engineering graduates with companies who are looking for candidates with the qualifications and skills found within those degrees. Take a look at our jobs above or contact us today.
