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.
