Data Science Graduate Programme
Following the success of the 2019 and 2020 programmes, applications for the 2021 Data Science Graduate Programme are now open until 3 June 2021.
Teams across government have seen the effect that the programme has had, so this year we are expanding it to offer places at several high-profile public-sector organisations. You’ll have the opportunity to work with experienced data scientists at organisations including 10 Downing Street, HM Treasury, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL), Land Registry, and the Welsh Government.
