Current job title: Credit Scoring & Strategy Analyst
"The content we studied in my final year was absolutely vital in getting the job I have today. The course is very applicable when applying for positions outside of university – it shows you are highly technical and intelligent, and has a broad range of different careers it can lead into.
"I am currently working as a credit scoring analyst – I work the credit risk department of a Financial Services company that lends money to consumers of high street clothing and furniture stores. I am involved in the development and monitoring of scoring models that assess the suitability of applicants for credit, and also involved in the building and monitoring of behaviour models that score our existing customers to advise how we should treat them (increase or decrease credit limits, etc.)
"Many jobs are looking for Mathematics graduates. If you're interested in mathematics I really can't recommend this course enough.
"In addition, I love Nottingham – it’s a fantastic city and I didn't have any questions at all about staying here when I graduated. When looking for jobs my number one priority was staying in this city."
