Data & Analytics

Our data is at the heart of everything we do and is fundamental to the success of our material investment in technology. Data is critical to achieving our strategy, underpinning our digital capability, and allowing us to delight our members through improved experience and more personalised services.  

In Data and Analytics our colleagues work to predict future patterns and behaviours using data. We use data to uncover new insights and then tell that story to inform decisions for our members. We transform raw data into something truly meaningful for the business, managing and protecting it at every stage.

Software Engineering

In engineering you could be working with:

  • Front end technologies such as React, JavaScript, HTML and CSS
  • Back-end technologies such as Node, C#, DotNet Core, Java
