graduate training programme

2020 applications are now closed. Applications to join us in September 2021 will open at the end of 2020.

"As well as technical training, we also received soft skills training and sessions introducing us to other roles in our industry; meaning we were able to understand the broader picture and where we as statisticians and programmers fit in. Overall, I thought the program was perfect for preparing us for our roles!"
