Sector careers guides

The IOP has published two guides to career opportunities in the nuclear and space industries. A third booklet on the defence industry is currently being produced.

With future booklets in the pipeline, employers can use them to promote their organisation for free by:

  • Providing case studies of your employees with a physics degree
  • Including your contact details in the ‘employer’ directory
  • Providing useful hints and tips on what it take to get into and be successful in your organisation

The booklets are promoted to over 40 university departments in the UK and Republic of Ireland, with more than 10 000 undergraduate and postgraduate students. This offers a unique opportunity to raise your organisational profile amongst the physics community.

If you would like to find out more about getting involved in future booklets, or get paper or PDF copies of existing booklets, please contact

Alternatively, IOP members can download the nuclear industry guide or the space industry booklet.
