Data Science Graduate Programme

Help us humanise data

On this programme, you’ll help us tell a story with our numbers. How can we understand our customers better? Where are our risks? How are our marketing campaigns doing?

The answers are in the data. If you can find them and explain them, you’ll be at the heart of our business. Creative problem-solving is the key to data science. Here, you’ll:

  • Use the latest tech tricks (like machine-learning) to improve our business
  • Design models and experiments and present them to our senior managers
  • Put our new products and processes through their paces

You’ll need to show us an impressive CV

We’ll need to be able to see that you can sort through huge bodies of data and statistics – and clearly explain what you find. So you’ll need a Masters or PhD in something analytical. You’ll need to know your programming languages too, ideally R or Python.

We’re #11 in Glassdoor’s ‘Best  Places to Work In The UK’ list

We got this recognition by practising what we preach. We make work life informal, flexible and simple, so our people can get creative. (Although the high starting salaries and other perks are probably factors too.)

Your starting salary will be £35,000 and all our graduates also get an extra £5,000 as a starting bonus. You’ll also get a range of perks, including private health and dental care, free on-site gyms and 25 days of paid holiday.

And there’s plenty more to read about us on our website – which is also where you can get the ball rolling with your application. 

Remember to mention TARGETjobs when contacting employers!
