Careers Fair Image 2

This event is designed to broaden the horizons of career-young statisticians through showcasing the wide range of different statistical careers that are available. Statistics covers fields as diverse as medicine, finance, industry, environment, government and academia. There will be a range of talks from these areas with invaluable networking opportunities. Speakers are confirmed from Phastar, AstraZeneca, NowGen, Department of Work and Pensions, and other companies based in northern England.

The event is intended for anyone about to embark on, or at the beginning of, their statistical career, so whether you have already begun to specialise in a particular area of statistics or are still studying, the day is sure to be of great value.
