About the business

We have a huge asset in our data. And how we harness this to understand the world, our business and our customers’ needs is crucial to our success. In Data and Analytics we promote the intelligent use of data and make sure it’s used in the right way.

Good data engineering helps us to get to grips with the data we have, and to profile the key features we can use to power our data science models. And in Data Science, we can apply statistics, computer science and problem-solving skills together with strong research methods to test, learn and optimise machine learning powered decisions to help customers.

In Data and Analytics you can expect to be creative with data to come up with innovative solutions using new techniques. You’ll consider ethical issues and focus on keeping our customers’ data safe, understand and optimise our customer interactions, and much more.
