We have opportunities across travel and aviation, precision agriculture, petrochemicals, HR compliance and financial services for which we are looking for the next generation of talented Data Scientists.

We want you to be curious and innovative with our data to help solve brand new industry problems with the latest tools and technologies. In exchange you will have the opportunity to become a valued contributor, learn to solve some of the most complex data problems in the world, and embed yourself within an industry leading team.

Joining a structured and well-developed graduate scheme, you will receive a blend of technical, commercial and soft skills training. This is partnered with both coaching and on-the-job experience to help you develop into a well-rounded team member. You will also be part of a wider graduate community spanning over five years, with frequent social events including charity days, diversity and inclusion events, and specific graduate and business socials.

A career at Risk Solutions Group (RSG) gives you the freedom to innovate, the trust to find your own path and the space to be original. It’s not just what you do, but how you do it, that is important to us.

Opportunities and responsibilities

We’re an agile, dynamic and forward-thinking organisation who understands the importance of looking after our staff.
