On the 2nd March 2016, the School of Mathematics at the University of Manchester held their 2016 Careers in Statistics Fair, supported by the RSS Manchester Local group – with around 40 individuals attending (http://www.maths.manchester.ac.uk/study/careers/maths-careers-events/careers-in-statistics-fair-2016.htm). The event was designed for individuals who were considering, or were at the start of, a statistical career, and included stalls from the RSS (manned by YSS committee members and Richard Emsley of the Manchester Local group), and from employers such as HMRC, Lubrizol, AWE, Ernst and Young and AstraZeneca. The day featured talks from these providers and from the RSS, and also a talk about Medical Statistics in the public sector or academia. The stalls and talks gave young individuals interested in a statistical career the opportunity to hear about the types of jobs available in the area, and also the chance to ask a wide range of people questions about their jobs, and what could help them move into similar careers in future.
