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.

How can a science graduate gain the edge in the job market?
Graduating can be both a daunting and exciting prospect. Whatever field your degree is in, the job market can be competitive. Whether you have a biology or a social science degree, having previous experience of working within the industry will always give you an edge. Many STEM degrees now offer a year of industry placement and it is generally always worth trying to get on a degree program that gives you relevant work experience. If this is not an option, taking part in summer programmes or gaining experience at a local company – even if it's not directly related to your degree, can make all the difference to your CV.
Another way to gain an edge in the job market is to apply for a science graduate scheme. Typically run by larger companies, you do not necessarily need to have industry experience to apply for science graduate schemes. Sign up to our newsletter to get the latest science graduate scheme updates.
