Careers fairs provide you with the chance to meet employers face-to-face, to learn about current vacancies and opportunities available, and to market yourself to prospective employers. Most of our fairs have several talks you can attend as well, about the sector and opportunities within it – and often the opportunity to get advice on your CV from professionals. See each fair booklet for further details.

If you’re attending a fair, we recommend you read our information on how to prepare for a careers fair for useful tips.

    It isn’t only the financial and academic or teaching world that is hungry for employees with advanced mathematics skills. Increasingly, commercial, government and not-for-profit sector players of all kinds are keen to employ highly numerate, analytical and creative thinkers to understand and predict trends, plan and develop strategy and deliver smarter and more efficient solutions. This session focuses on how to present your skills and experience to employers at the fair and beyond.

    15:15 – 16:00
    Data and Data Analytics is one of the most competitive areas for graduate recruiters to secure talent as an ever increasing number of companies look to gain advantage from the data revolution. It’s as much about asking the right questions of the data as it is doing the analysis, and this talk offers a fantastic opportunity to understand the range of opportunities and potential ways to make yourself stand out, whether you are an undergraduate or researcher, and irrespective of your academic background. Join our panel of representatives from companies attending the fair as they talk about their roles, what they enjoy most about their work, how they got started and the current challenges facing them and their teams.

There will be time for questions as well.
