          Helping you find a career in the physics industry

          The jobs that you can do within physics stretch far and wide. Whether you're working in research and development, teaching or even engineering you'll be using your sophisticated understanding of the world to make a difference to our future.

          There really is no typical day as a physicist - it will totally depend on what project you are working on and what area you choose to specialise in. Physicists are needed across all different industries, including (but not limited to):

          -Product development -Finance -Information Technology -Engineering -Healthcare -Geology

          Most of the roles within physics will require a degree-level qualification because of the complex nature of the industry. However, there are a number of apprenticeships available for those who do not fancy the traditional University route.

          Skills & interests required for a career in Physics

          Of course, to pursue a career in physics you will need to be scientifically minded. Many apprenticeships will require strong A-levels in science subjects to prove this.

          Physics careers require excellent problem solving skills, particularly in areas such as research and development.

          Most of the roles within physics will have an element of Maths involved and it'll help if you are comfortable working with numbers.

          Some other skills that will benefit you in physics include:

          Physics apprenticeships & other career progress routes for school leavers

          Your progression in physics will largely depend on what industry you choose to go into and there is no real standardised path. You can choose the areas that interest you the most and as you gain more experience you will take on more responsibility in your role. In time, you may take lead roles on projects or research and be in charge of keeping everything on track.

          What do Physics professionals get paid?

          STEM careers in general have the potential for high earnings, particularly if you become an expert in your chosen field. Some typical salaries in physics include:

          Data analyst: £18,573 - £40,477 Laboratory assistant: £13,193 - £21,707 Physicist: £24,384 - £54,396

          What qualifications do I need for a career in Physics?

          A degree is the best way to widen your career options within physics, but there are a number of companies who offer research and development apprenticeships in science. The qualification that you get from this program will depend on your employer.

          Many of these apprenticeships will still require strong A-levels in science and maths. Some popular companies who offer physics apprenticeships are:

          -The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) -Gen2 -The UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA)

          There are also usually opportunities available in university physics departments - so check the ones that are local to you.
