I recently graduated from uni with an honours degree in mathematics and now it's time to hit the real world (which is pretty daunting). I'm hoping to head over to London, UK, in late Feb or early March to meet up with a friend and would like to have a job sorted out by that time. Although I studied maths, I don't really want to be a maths teacher or work in the financial sector either; what I really would love to do is work in the aerospace industry working on things such as aircraft and propulsion system design which would hopefully need my expertise, but I'm worried that roles such as these would only be open to engineers.

If this is the case, does anyone know if any UK aerospace companies (BAe, Airbus UK, Thales, Rolls-Royce etc.) would give on the job training to people who might not have all of the required prerequisites but have a promising CV? I ask this because I worked my butt off at uni and graduated top in my maths class in 2011, and last year I graduated top in my post-graduate honours maths class as well, so I'm hoping that companies would take more than 2 seconds to glance over my CV and might see that I could be adaptable to a role that I'm interested in.

Apologies for the long winded post, and I hope someone will be able to help me our here. Cheers!
