Job Description

Data Science Level 6 Degree Apprenticeship (September 2022)

Did you possess a strong enthusiasm for Maths at A-level?

Were you the student who enjoyed thinking on your feet and problem solving?

Are you able to focus both on your own, as well as in a team towards a goal?

If you’re the type of person who always asks “Why” – then this could be for you.

Start your career at Experian as a Data Scientist! 

Now it’s possible you will have never heard of the job “Data Scientist”. Rest assured; this doesn’t mean you’ll be mixing chemicals in a lab.

It’s a puzzling role that brings together maths, statistics, software engineering and communication. One day you could be coding in languages such as: R, Python & Scala, the next working on modelling and developing statistical models (Machine Learning).

You don’t need to have any previous tech experience, nor education in data science. A passion for numbers mixed with a curious mind is all you need to succeed.  


What we’re looking for

  • To apply you need/be predicted 3x A-levels (Ideally grade’s A*- B)
  • One of these MUST be in in Mathematics.
  • Not have a degree in a similar subject

Direct experience is not necessary, but a passion for technology, data and programming is a must. We’re also open to hearing from alternative career pathway students who may not have the direct grades but boast relevant experience in the field.

We look for students who are:

  • Intellectually Curious: You will love to learn. To discover how things “tick”. You will ask questions and not be afraid to challenge the status quo.
  • Driven to deliver: To excel and take pride in your work. To meet deadlines.
  • Willing to contribute: You will get stuck in and contribute ideas. We know you’ll make mistakes (everyone does!) but you will continually evolve.
  • Proud to collaborate and be yourself: You won’t be afraid to help others. We want to see the authentic you, and to support you in delivering with integrity.
  • Accountable: To safeguard our future. To represent our brand. To do yourself and Experian proud. 

Whilst we have adopted a hybrid way of working, this role is based in Nottingham. Please only apply if this would be a suitable location for you.

Additional Information


If successful you will undertake your Level 6 Degree Apprenticeship at the University of Nottingham through block release.

We’ll support you the entire way, pay for your qualification and provide an extensive induction programme to help you adjust to the work/study balance. You’ll also become part of our Early Careers Network and connect with hundreds of other individuals across Experian.
