As a Mathematics Graduate you can offer many impressive skills to prospective employers including problem-solving, logical and strategical thinking, a high level of numeracy and strong IT skills. You will also have developed a wide range of soft skills which students from all disciplines learn whilst at university, including time-management, organisation, communication and team work.
Your prospects as a maths graduate are excellent as the skills you have learnt at university are highly sought after across a wide range of industries and sectors. As well as obvious destinations such as Deloitte, Towers Watson and RBS, graduates have gone on to work for a range of other companies such as Fox’s Biscuits, L’Oréal, Manchester United and Jimmy Choo. Roles that students have gone into in their first year after graduation also cover a diverse range- from the more traditional routes, such as Trainee Actuarial Student, Finance Administrator Analyst and Assistant Auditor, to other less obvious roles including English Teacher, Recruitment Consultant and E-commerce Visual Merchandiser.
Of course, many students have progressed on to further study not just at The University of Manchester but at various other Universities including Imperial College, Heriot-Watt and even The Royal Academy of Music.
