What’s it like?

How does Yash describe his graduate job? “Pretty cool.” It’s because he gets to use technology to learn about different industries and help clients improve how they work.

How’s it structured?

Be prepared to learn a lot about data analysis as you get straight to work on projects that deal with anti-bribery and corruption, sanctions screening, corporate fraud investigation, trader surveillance, and audit and compliance analytics. As soon as you’re ready, you’ll be working directly with clients, learning how to understand their needs and working with your team to solve their complex problems.

As the programme progresses, you’ll become more familiar with handling large data sets and designing and developing solutions that use social network analysis, concept clustering, predictive analytics, text mining, data visualisation and more. You’ll have access to loads of support, and training and development opportunities. You may even take part in our annual development and skills conference, or could be offered the chance to travel abroad for an international project. By the end of the programme, you’ll likely have developed the skills and knowledge to receive a promotion and continue building a great career.
