Other opportunities using data skills
As a chemical scientist you’ll be used to handling and analysing large volumes of data; these skills can open up opportunities for you in other non-scientific areas.
The financial sector is one of the largest contributors to UK GDP, and offers numerous opportunities for chemical scientists to apply their knowledge of analysing and modelling data. The efinancial careers site lists many of these roles.
Management consultants often recruit chemical scientists due to their numerical and problem-solving skills.
Other sectors, such as the environment, healthcare, retail and marketing also offer oportunities for working with and analysing large data sets.
