What’s in it for me?
You will be working at the heart of central government and your conclusions will help shape national policy that will affect millions of people. Our analytical teams cover a broad range of remits from dealing with resource allocation, workforce planning, forecasting, performance measurement, and strategic planning.
We offer opportunities to work with a wide range of customers and government analysts; working together to impact decisions made by senior officials. You will have the opportunity to learn the skills required for professional life whilst working for organisations ranked in the top 10 graduate employers in the country as rated by the graduates themselves. The work will be high profile and you might find yourself working with requests from Ministers and other senior officials.
Who are we looking for?We are looking for bright, forward-thinking students from numerate subject areas such as mathematics, physics, operational research, computer science, statistics and engineering. Being highly numerate is only the starting point for our student analysts; we expect you to build on your technical skills and work towards successfully influencing policy decisions by presenting your analysis effectively in meetings, producing written reports and giving oral presentations.
Open to STEM based subjects (we require at least 50% numerate modules)
