Graduate recruitment

If you are looking for Graduates with advanced quantitative and analytical skills we have several ways in which we can help.


Recruitment Fair

Our main event is an annual specialist Recruitment Fair, normally held in early November. This is open to employers looking to recruit students with analytical skills, such as mathematics, statistics, Operational Research, Business Analytics and Management Sciences.

Typically we have 15 - 20 employers and over 100 attendees from Mathematics and the Business School who are studying for various quantitative degrees in Mathematics, Statistics, Operational Research, Business Analytics, Finance, Supply Chain Management & Logistics and Management Sciences.


Employer Briefings

We like to invite employers to give our students briefings on the types of work they can expect to do using their analytical skills in the "real" world. These sessions are 45 minutes in duration, usually on a Wednesday lunchtime, and typically involve a new entrant to an organisation (often a Southampton alumnus) describing some of the projects they have worked on and contrasting this with their studies. This can be combined with a recruitment pitch. Please contact our Industrial Liaison Officer Peter Becque ( to see what sessions are available.


Advertise a Vacancy

We are happy to advertise career opportunities to our student group as they arise, inviting students to apply directly to the company and advertise the post in our Alumni LinkedIn page. Please send your request to our Industrial Liaison Officer Julie Hickman (
