1. Johnson Matthey - Science Graduate Programme

  • Where: Various locations (rotational programme)
  • Salary: Competitive
  • Deadline: ASAP

Johnson Matthey is a FTSE 100 company that uses science to make the world cleaner and healthier. On this Science Graduate Programme, starting in September 2021, you'll have the opportunity to work alongside industry experts in different technology centres across the UK, developing sustainable solutions that create value for customers and have an impact at the global scale. You'll need to have a degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Natural Sciences or Materials Science by next year to apply - if that's you, hit the link below.


Put your technology expertise to use helping to make the world a safer, better place in the digital age with the British Army. From setting up complex information and radio networks under fire or during humanitarian missions, to providing 3G networks for multinational forces – as an Army Communications Troop Officer it will be your responsibility to tackle a wide range of operations in times of peace and conflict. As with all Army jobs, you'll have access to a multitude of benefits and support throughout your career. Click below to find out more.


Did you know that there's currently a severe shortage of computer science teachers in the UK? So much so that last year only two thirds of computer science teaching vacancies were filled. Take advantage of the demand for your skills by joining Teach First and launching a career unlocking the potential in children from disadvantaged backgrounds. The earlier you apply, the better your chances of securing your first choice subject and location.


Students with a technical or engineering related degree can also join Johnson Matthey's Operations team, where you will find yourself driving operational excellence across the organisation, while working in such areas as auto-catalyst manufacturing, industrial catalysts and absorbents, precious metal products, battery systems and more. The programme starts next September, but you need to apply soon; as soon as they have enough applicants they will stop accepting applications.


As a member of Amex Strategy, you'll become part of a project team working on American Express's toughest challenges and biggest opportunities, whilst seeing first-hand how the impact of your solutions helps the company grow. Sound interesting to you? Applications are now open for the 2021 intake, so don't wait around to apply.



This is just the tip of the iceberg.
