Careers for Mathematicians

The best attended event I have been to! Thoroughly enjoyed it and spoke to relevant and interested candidates.

Sample Programme

Booking Form: Please submit a PDF booking form via Adobe. If you have problems with this form please use the RTF version. Please read our Booking Conditions carefully on page two of the form.

Please see the Joining Instructions- PDF format / RTF format - for important information about the day.

Description: This event takes place in Cambridge University's award-winning Centre for Mathematical Sciences and runs alongside a separate event, Careers in Quantitative Finance.

Open To: Recruiters whose opportunities have mathematical or statistical content sufficiently challenging to attract able mathematicians, and where recruitment would normally be mainly from that discipline or physics (e.g. actuarial work, cryptography, forecasting, complex modelling, operational research, computational fluid dynamics, meteorology, signal processing etc).

Important Information: We seek to offer our students as wide a range of opportunities as possible, so we may have to decline a booking request to avoid over-representation of a sector. We hope that organisations who have not been successful in obtaining a place will be sympathetic to these aims.

See the sample programme which includes an example programme entry and event advertising/sponsorship options.

Stand: Due to space restrictions no display stands or other floor-standing equipment are permitted, we also do not allow laptops or other A/V equipment. A small table will be provided. Please keep give-aways to a minimum.

Representatives: Three representatives per pitch is the permitted maximum. Please note that representatives at this event should predominantly be those who are working in posts with a high mathematical or statistical content. Students attending this event particularly benefit from talking to like-minded individuals rather than to HR professionals. These students often do not visit our more general careers events.

Extra Info: Light refreshments provided.

2019 Careers for Mathematicians Event Attendance: While not every student was scanned into the event we are able to say that over 453 attended (13% female). 115 were postgraduates. 331 were undergraduates and of these 154 were finalists and 129 penultimate years (mostly mathematicians but also 10 computer scientists, 7 engineers, 28 natural sciences).
