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/

Forensic Science Graduate
Apply for the Best Forensic Graduate Jobs
As a leading recruiter of graduates with STEM degrees, we help organisations find talented forensic science graduates. A fascinating industry, forensic science encompasses a number of roles, both within the traditional field of forensic science and in other associated fields, where skills such as attention to detail and an enquiring mind are an essential skillset.
Forensic science graduate jobs are often related to laboratory skills and attention to detail. There are opportunities in some forensic science degree jobs to work on criminal cases as a forensic scientist, and also positions that are in other areas of biological research.
Forensic science jobs can be found in both the private and public sector. Currently, most criminal forensic services are outsourced, so many traditional forensic science roles are now with private companies. However, some forensic science graduate jobs can be found with the police force, the Ministry of Defence, the intelligence services and in universities.
What forensic science graduate jobs can I go for?
There are a number of roles that forensic science graduates can apply for, which include:
- Crime scene investigator
- Forensic recovery officer
- Forensic casework manager
- Forensic analyst
- Forensic computer analyst
- Digital forensic analyst/investigator
- Laboratory technician
- Forensic scientist
Many forensic science graduates will have learnt the skills that employers are looking for while studying their degree. A skillset that is desirable to employers of this type can include:
- Methodical approach to work
- Detail orientated
- Analytical skills
- Lab skills
- Working in a team
Another key skill for forensic science graduates is the ability to communicate, as you will have to write up reports and potentially present your findings to a room full of people. Depending on the type of forensic work you undertake, you may have to deal with upsetting and unpleasant situations.
How to find forensic science jobs
Of course, the above list of forensic science jobs is not exhaustive; there are other associated roles that you could consider, such as police officer, detective, biomedical scientist, science writer, teacher and many more. If you are looking for your first graduate job then upload your CV today.
