About the Internship

If you join our Data Science Graduate Internship, you’ll work with our Advanced Analytics function which leads the development and application of data science at the FCA. Its principle objective is delivering business value through the use of pioneering techniques.
You’ll support our data scientists on projects and help deliver innovative solutions to solve challenging problems.
