Graduate careers in Cambridge

Cambridge is where the past and present meet the future. You’ll find age-old tradition and innovative technology companies packed together in a city that’s just fifty minutes from London.

Career city: Cambridge | Postgraduate study | Local graduate employers | Moving to Cambridge

The city is best known for its educational institutions and it’s the work of graduates from these that has led to the creation of ‘Silicon Fen’, a cluster of cutting-edge software, electronics and biotechnology businesses, including multinationals CSR and ARM.

If you’re not technologically minded, however, there are still plenty of graduate opportunities on offer within the Cambridge area, as its city-in-the-country standard of living has made it popular with a wide range of recruiters.
