Our goal in Data and Analytics

We’re promoting the intelligent use of data and making sure it’s used in the right way. Data is one of our biggest assets. How we harness this data to understand the world, our business and our customers is crucial to our success.

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.

What’s great about the programme?

Every area of our business is different – they each need their own skillsets, their own challenges, their own nuances. What better way to find out what working in a business area is like, than from the people who are already working there?

Where can our programme take you?

For the full eight weeks, we’ll pair you with a ‘buddy’ and a line manager, who’ll support you in gaining valuable experience to help guide your career choices. During the programme, you’ll also work with other interns on a business project. This’ll help you develop key skills covering team working, planning, creative thinking, presenting, business plan writing and problem solving – gaining crucial experience in presenting to stakeholders.

You’ll also get time to support good causes in the communities we serve through a Corporate Social Responsibility day.

At the end of the placement, we’ll assess you on what you’ve learned. Complete this successfully and you could be offered a place on our 2025 Data and Analytics Graduate programme, where you can carry the skills you’ve learnt forward and take the next step in your career.
