The organisation only works with employers with an open, inclusive, and welcoming culture. They are proud members of Tech She Can Charter and Disability Confident Committed, and welcome graduates from all backgrounds to join them on this exciting Graduate Programme. The organisation wants you to have the best chance to succeed with them, so please feel comfortable letting them know of any reasonable adjustments they can make for you throughout the application process.

There is a shortage of women in Data and AI, and the organisation is passionate about increasing the diversity in the industry. They wholeheartedly encourage women to apply for this opportunity; your skills, perspectives and ideas are highly valued in the world of data science, and they will provide a unique learning experience with support to grow in this dynamic industry.


The Programme

The Programme is designed to fast-track you into a successful career in data science. The organisation’s collective aim is to develop you into a Data / AI professional, equipped with the following skillsets:

  • Enable the transition into a digital, rapid service to support the business.
  • Understand and use technology effectively to serve the business.
  • Help predict the impact of future business disruption.


What’s on offer

The Programme offers a 10-month, accelerated development experience. It includes a data / AI related industry work placement, a 4-week bootcamp course, and a fully funded level 7 Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Data and AI.

You will undertake your 10-month work placement at one of Wales’ most well-known global businesses or innovative start-ups including household names such as Admiral, s.a global, Principality Building Society, Pepper Money, Atradius, Hodge Bank, and more.

You will be in a strong position to apply for jobs as they arise. All of their previous Data / AI Programme graduates have secured a permanent data science position as a result of participating in the Programme!
