Maths in the City - Careers Day for Year 12

The Year 12 A-Level Maths class visited Salesforce, a leading technology company, at their Salesforce Tower headquarters for an event held by The Brokerage called ‘Maths in the City’.

While there, we were given a tour of the offices and recreational floors by employees of Salesforce as well as being tasked with applying maths to real life situations – such as buying and selling stocks.


During our visit, we also got to interview some of the employees and learn what their roles and responsibilities were and how they made their way into Salesforce. All employees came from different backgrounds, some from different countries and professions entirely.

We were also made aware of the Salesforce graduate scheme which brought the brightest, hard-working university graduates with a variety of degrees (from History to Business Management) into the company for training in technology.


Overall, the trip was very eye-opening and comprehensive. Being able to learn more about the technology sector and how it impacts the corporate side of business was interesting. Technology, especially Salesforce, is an option all of the A-Level maths class is now considering.

Rayyan, Maths Subject Ambassador


What students said...

Adrian – “I’ve always wanted to be involved with technology, especially since I study IT at sixth form. The chance to be involved in the tech sector through an influential company such as Salesforce is something I aspire to achieve.”

Shiam – “I never really considered technology a sector I would like to have a career path in, but after visiting Salesforce my mind has definitely changed. The relaxed nature of the workspace and how the company treats their employees is very forward-thinking compared to most companies and something I would want to be part of.”

Atiqullah – “Although I primarily want to enter the finance sector, a career in the tech sector would be something I consider. Salesforce is much different to what I had originally perceived an office job and a job at a tech firm would be like.” 


Mr Grant, Maths teacher said: "Today was an excellent experience for the students. They got further insight into the numerous opportunities that are available in the mathematics field and what it is like to work in the corporate world.  They were very impressive with the quality of questions asked and the answers they provided when questions were thrown out. Everyone was impressed by our students and they truly represented Harris Boys' well.
