Analyst & Data Science

Why choose our Analyst & Data Science Programme?

To remain the world’s number one Building Society, we must continuously evolve and improve. We have bold ambitions but know that with change, ‘the devil’s in the detail’. If you have a love of data and like turning it into something useful, then take a look at this.


Please note, the Data and Analytics option is now full, but you can still apply for Risk and Audit.


Grow, learn and develop

We have a standard approach to managing change and we actively embrace Agile development. That said, Analysts use a whole toolkit of methods and approaches and, because every project is different, you’ll learn how to use the right tools, techniques or software for the specific needs of the business area you’re supporting.

You’ll be comfortable working with data from different sources to make recommendations to the business and alert to opportunities for doing things better.


Plenty of scope

You’ll be able to work with and influence many different parts of the business, including Risk and Audit.

You'll gain first-hand experience of how different parts of the business work together. This gives you the chance to build strong and lasting working relationships, as well as providing deeper insight and greater personal development.

In your final year on the graduate programme, you’ll be able to specialise in a part of the business that you’re really passionate about.

Be clear about what you can bring to an organisation

There’s no doubt about how important a CV is – it can speak volumes. Your CV will speak on your behalf and make a first impression about you before you even physically meet a potential employer, so it’s important to make sure its saying the right things about you.

We all know that work experience will always be of key value to any potential employer, but nowadays employers are also equally interested in taking on well-rounded individuals. The key is to diversify your CV! That’s why below, we’ve listed some tips on what you should include on your CV.

Work- based history 

The basic requirements of any CV is to list your work history and experience. This in turn, helps employers to match your experience and history to the job vacancy. Outside of your full-time and part time employment history you can also add:

Voluntary work

Voluntary work is a great way to show your employer that you’re a well-rounded candidate – it’s even more useful if you’ve volunteered for something that you could easily tie in with the job that you’re applying for. Volunteering work can include helping out within the community or an unpaid- internship you’ve undertaken. The key is to use this section of your CV to highlight the important leanings you took away from your time volunteering. Volunteering can show that you’re a proactive person, keen to look for new opportunities!

Training courses

Professional qualifications and training are important to showcase to potential employers as they make it easy for the employer to see if you’re the right candidate for the role. Not everybody has qualifications, so if you do make sure to list them as they can show an employer that you’re determined and dedicated to career development.

Academic achievements

Here, you can list your academic achievements. It’s important to keep this section brief so that it's easily readable. You can add the grades awarded to show your employer your commitment to success. As well as your work employment, employers are also interested in knowing your educational background.

Personal- based history 

It’s important to let your personality shine through your CV. So as well as work-related achievements, you can also include some of the below:

Extracurricular activities

Showing that you've been involved with clubs, societies and other activities outside of uni/college is something employers will look out for and a great way to boost your CV!

Employers often have the difficult task of choosing between candidates whose profiles often look alike in terms of education and experience. Showcasing some extra-curricular activities here can help you stand out!


If you have more career experience, you may have had the opportunity to mentor someone else. Mentorships show that you're able to have a career that involves managing others. It's a quality that can set you apart and shows you have unique experience others may not have.

It may also be worth highlighting if you’ve been mentored by someone influential within the industry as this could also set you apart from others.

Hobbies and activities

This can help the employer get to know you a little better. You can briefly discuss any hobbies and personal interests you have outside of work. Just make sure that they are positively adding to the ‘picture’ of you that you want to portray.

Good luck!
