Mainly London and Bristol, but some placements may be elsewhere in the UK, remote working and in-person.


Various options available based on graduate development requirements.

Help us shape solutions from data

Every time a customer uses our apps, makes a purchase or chooses a product, they generate data. This data is incredibly important, but how can it help us grow as the Bank of the Future and prepare for whatever the future brings? That’s where our Data Science teams come in.

We're experts in collecting and analysing large data sets, and we use this knowledge to help teams across the business spot and understand both opportunities and challenges. We design software, work with robotic process automation, integrate machine learning and more, to create data-led solutions.

Right now, we're looking for more new talent join us. If you have a sharp, analytical mind and a good grasp of coding in Python, then Data Science could be for you.

Is our Data Science graduate scheme for you?

Do you love maths and applying data analysis to make good strategic and automated decisions?  Do you want to put your skills to work in an environment where they can drive real and meaningful change? If the answer's yes, Data Science could be for you.

As individuals, we're incredibly diverse – in attitude, skills and ways of thinking – but we share an appreciation for innovation and learning. We’re always looking for new ways to tackle a challenge or trying different styles of working. And we know that collaborating to solve a problem makes for a stronger solution.

With that in mind, our graduate scheme pairs you with different business areas – to help you become a data scientist with a deeper understanding of how you can impact change.

What you'll learn on the Data Science graduate scheme

Over two years, you’ll learn to solve all kinds of business problems and become a skilled data scientist within an inclusive, diverse and collaborative team.

We want to give you as broad an experience as possible, with really diverse challenges. Throughout your three placements, you’ll work in cross-project teams to understand client and business problems. You’ll find solutions that improve the way they work, and the ways customers bank.

We’ll also encourage you to work to your strengths and grow beyond them through training and networking opportunities. And at the end of the scheme, you’ll have a portfolio of tried and tested data-led solutions that show your skills are improving the way people bank.

Running quantitative analysis to learn about user behaviours

Researching new technologies and presenting proposals to senior colleagues

Developing Python code to test hypotheses and build end-to-end solutions that could help thousands of customers

Is this for you?

What you need to apply

A 2:2 degree or above in any discipline from any university, and PhD and master’s students are welcome.

Due to the technical nature of this scheme, you’ll also need a strong understanding of Python coding techniques and the mathematical ability to analyse data and statistics using methods like modelling and probabilities.


Our graduate schemes are rotational, but most Data Science roles are based at our Bristol and London hubs. We offer a mix of remote working and in-person throughout the duration of the scheme, depending on individual development requirements and circumstances.

Our community is continually growing, however, so you may be required to do placements across the UK.

The application process

Our application process is designed to give all candidates the opportunity to excel. You’ll find everything you need to know, including stages of the process and tips to help you succeed, on our how to apply page.

Closing date

This scheme is currently closed for applications.
