The UK science industry continues to be one of the most influential in the world, publishing nearly 7% of the world’s research articles despite accounting for less than 1% of the planet’s population. jobs in science are often very specialised, with many of the UK biggest science employers being large multi-national organisations. Working in science can be demanding and fast paced, with most UK science employees concentrated around large towns and cities.

What you will be doing on a day-to-day basis in a science job will of course depend on what sector you decide to enter. Sectors include nuclear, energy, food and pharmaceutical, whilst specific science jobs can be anything from academic researcher to a meteorologist. Science job duties will often be focused around a laboratory, with you expected to work both individually and as part of a much larger team.

As you can imagine, qualifications are very important when considering working in science. For the majority of science jobs, you will likely be required to have a bachelor’s degree, often in a related subject. For example, analytical chemist positions will require you to have a degree in chemistry, likewise a food technologist would be expected to have a degree in a similar food-related area. Postgraduate qualifications, such as master’s degree and PhD are becoming increasingly valued and have become a prerequisite for certain roles. Regarding personal qualities, science employees look for candidates with methodical and analytical problem-solving skills, as well as good observational abilities and strong communication and interpersonal abilities.

Working in science has good prospects for a variety of reasons. Firstly, positions are often highly specialised, meaning your particular skills sets will be valued by your employer. Secondly, most science employers are large global companies, providing a certain level of job security and opportunities for promotion and travel. Furthermore, the UK science industry continues to show excellent growth, with certain sectors, such as medical devices, showing strong potential. It must be noted that the industry can be difficult to enter for graduates simply because of the quality of applicants looking for jobs in science. Initial salaries for science graduates can vary significantly, starting anywhere between £17,000 to £35,000 and depending on what scientific discipline you study.

There are many advantages to working in science, perhaps none more so than helping to improve human health and lifestyle. From the development of new drugs to breakthroughs in technology, science has and will continue to be vital to human development. On top of the feeling of exploration and job satisfaction you will get from following your passion, you will also have opportunities to create experiments, meet peers and travel. Science employers are often large, multinational organisations which can create great long-term job stability.

Some of the disadvantages to working in science include the possibility of long hours and the pressure to deliver results. Such pressure can be made worse when dealing with medicines and cures for major diseases. Additional cons to working in science in the UK include competition amongst peers, the pressure to publish papers, science employers being large, faceless organisation, issues around lack of funding and what is sometimes perceived as insufficient salaries, particularly for lower-level positions.
