Careers in Quantitative Finance

The students were very targeted- they were asking the representatives very good questions regarding the roles.

Description: This event takes place in Cambridge University's award-winning Centre for Mathematical Sciences and runs alongside the Careers for Mathematicians event, on a different floor.

Open To: Recruiters whose opportunities have quantitative content sufficiently challenging to attract able mathematicians, and where recruitment for the roles would normally be mainly from that discipline or physics.

Important Information: This event was held for the first time in 2016 and will be expanding to two rooms in 2017, due to popularity/over-crowding.

Cost: £450+VAT. (Please read our booking terms and conditions).

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 table will be provided.

Representatives: Three representatives per pitch is the permitted maximum. Please note that representatives at this event should predominantly be those who are working in quantitative finance roles. 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.
