Start Date
Working on rotation, you'll experience first-hand the work of our Data, Business Intelligence and Systems team, Knowledge and Information Management team, and the UK National Authority for Counter-Eavesdropping (UK NACE). As you do so, you'll gather and assess all kinds of data and glean the insights that help drive positive change and protect UK assets. Whether you're reviewing project information, designing easy-to-understand dashboards, checking the quality of data and spotting anomalies, or analysing security data to discover threats, you'll learn to tell the story behind the data - and create meaningful reports that influence senior leaders too.

But that's not all. We'll also support you while you work towards a Level 4 Data Analyst Apprenticeship qualification. Your studies will cover the theory and practice behind data analysis and put your practical experience into a wider context. When you pass your final assessments, you'll be able to apply to be on the Register of IT Technicians. Plus, there's a good chance we'll offer you a permanent position in our team.

In short, you'll build your specialist skills, have real impact and widen your options - all with the benefits of a career in the Civil Service. So we think it's fair to say: your future just got bigger.
