Data Scientist Graduate Programme

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

Dream big and design bigger. Adapt to change. Realise your potential.

Use your inquisitive, collaborative nature to help organisations turn big ideas into business-changing reality. Gain hands-on experience working with real clients from day one and we’ll support you as you gain valuable business skills. This is where you have the chance to build a truly dynamic and varied career, one that springboards off your potential.

What is Data Science at EY?

As part of the Consulting Analytics team, we deliver leading edge business intelligence and analytics for our clients, to drive performance improvement across multiple services and operational functions. Our team lead, research and deliver client solutions using a range of Data Science and AI technologies, and develop innovative prototypes to bring to life our capability.

What will you be doing?

  • Supporting the pursuit of new work through client conversations
  • Mentoring other experienced and aspiring Data Science and AI Engineers
  • Supporting in brand promotion activities
  • You'll be expected to work longer hours during peak times in client delivery work – this is especially the case during busy season when you’ll need to work over weekends too

No two projects will be the same, so you’ll experience a wide variety of learning and have support from colleagues along the way. You'll have access to a broad suite of learning resources to develop your consulting and technical skills including our EY Badges programme which offers structured learning leading to accreditation in a range of subject domains including data visualisation, innovation and blockchain. If you do well, there may be opportunities to be promoted to Senior Consultant by the end of the programme.

This is your opportunity to shape the future of work alongside people who believe in our cause. Get to the heart of what we do and become an active partner in our future. Define who you want to be and join us in our journey to build a better working world – together.

What we are looking for


We operate an open access policy, meaning we don’t screen out applications on your academic performance alone. You will, however, need to be working towards an Honours degree in a STEM or computer science related subject – have a minimum of Level 2/GCSE (or equivalent) in English language and maths, and three A-levels or five Highers (or equivalent) to be eligible to apply.
