Simon works as a computer games developer, building scenarios for games using computer scripting language. This Department for Education clip shows how science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects can be the foundation for a career in the computer industry.

An understanding of mathematics forms an integral part to Simon's job. He says, "My official job title is Lead Scripter. As well as creating games we also test them, which is great fun."

"Maths and physics A-levels gave me a good grounding to do a games programming degree, and I use physics everyday. I did lots of computing at GCSE and A-level along with maths and physics. I love working in a fun environment with a really supportive team. It's a dream job.''
