Data Analyst Industrial Placement Student
Life as a Data Analyst is all about having a curious mind. As a Placement Student at Experian, you’ll start by learning the basics of data analysis by delivering batch fraud services to our clients, using programming skills to manipulate pre-defined SAS scripts that extract data. Over time you will progress to use programming languages like SQL, SAS and Python to extract, manipulate and analyse data. You’ll also help to make sense of this data by deriving insights and trends! Day to day you could be contributing to data reports, MI or even working on a product proof-of-concept for future clients (where you take a sample of data from a client and assess what benefit that future product could offer them).
Throughout this placement, communication skills are important as you’ll be working with a variety of people and may have to translate technical work to non-technical stakeholders. You will also have chance to put your creative flair to use, through understanding our processes and suggesting enhancements for the future. We actively want you to challenge the way we do things.
If you want to work with interesting data, apply your analytical skills to real-world scenarios and help Experian unlock new opportunities for our clients and consumers, then this is the placement for you!
For the last 15 years, we’ve successfully trained Placement Students within Data Analytics, many of whom go on to re-join us as Graduates. It’s an exciting time, and we want you on board. If you choose to join us, you can expect industry training, wide-reaching career opportunities and a wealth of support through our Early Careers Network, buddy, line manager & mentor scheme.
Our concept is simple. We believe in expanding horizons – it’s what makes Experian a global leader and a Top UK Tech Employer.
To apply for this opportunity, you must be currently studying on an undergraduate degree, and able to undertake a year in industry placement starting in July 2024 and ending in August 2025.
Due to the technical nature of this role it’s important you have a numerate background. In most cases, our Data Analyst Placement students will be studying towards a Bachelor’s degree course with a high mathematical content (for example Computer Science, Data Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Operations Research (O.R.), Economics, Physical Sciences, Engineering etc).
Any knowledge of machine learning, computer programming, statistical techniques (eg. SAS/SPSS, or R) or data visualisation tools (eg. Tableau) is valuable but not essential to the role.
It’s also key to be an analytical thinker, have good communication skills and a thirst for learning.
Whilst we have adopted a hybrid way of working, this role is based in Nottingham and requires the successful applicant to work in the office at least two days per week. Please only apply if this location would be suitable for you.
