    If the degree has a lot of maths in it, you could always go into accountancy/finance/insurance. One of my friends is doing a Physics degree at Durham, and he wants to go to London and have a financial career afterwards.

    If you mean a job that is directly related to theoretical physics then ... er ... there are probably few if any outside of academia!
