This role will involve working on projects and partnering with teams across People & Property using your knowledge of data practices and principles to support the discovery of advanced insights using analytics techniques, our suite of BI tools and wealth of colleague data available from our strategic Workday solution.

As a team we take ownership of the entire data science life cycle from end-to-end analytics processes covering hypothesis ideation, data sourcing and management, statistical testing, visualising and storytelling with our results.

We have lots of experienced Workday SMEs on hand to help with the art of the possible so experience with people data would be helpful, but not essential.

The role of a data scientist ...

Working in a small team you'll support all stages of a project - from exploring the problem statement and experimenting with different modelling approaches to developing industrialised applications powered by Machine Learning.

As a data scientist you'll perform the following activities:

  • Work with team members to engineer data from our strategic Workday data source, jam-packed with insights from our 65,000 colleagues
  • Develop experimental models and machine learning applications in Python and R to productionize Machine Learning models that predict trends amongst our workforce
  • Collaborate amongst the team, communicating key findings to our business partners and finding new ways to use data to tell the stories of our colleagues

Your models will have a material impact on our colleagues, helping them to focus on what matters and helping Britain prosper - together we'll make it possible …

Here's what we need from you...

The role will suit data professionals with some work experience or graduates with significant technical experience. In particular, you'll need to have:

  • A good understanding of Python, R and SQL including writing and productionizing code
  • Understanding of the full Machine Learning lifecycle including automating data validation, model training, model validation and model monitoring through to presenting insights and findings
  • An understanding of how data & insight is used in commercial decision making

We're particularly keen to hear from individuals who have a track record of delivering data projects within commercial environments, and experience working with people data would be an extra plus!

If you think you might be a good fit technically but aren't 100% on all the requirements, we'd love to hear from you so please apply!

And how will we challenge you?

You'll have the opportunity to answer our toughest people data questions! We're fortunate to have a continuous and exciting supply of work and lots of different puzzles to be solved with our industry leading people dataset.

We are on a mission to get known around the bank for the deep knowledge of our workforce we house and our team's ability to spot trends - so you'll get the opportunity to shout about your work through engaging with our partners.

You'll be able to collaborate with lots of data professionals in the bank through the growing Data & Analytics community. We'll provide you opportunities to share knowledge through self-starting guilds as well as offering you technical mentoring to develop your skill set and career path further.

You'll be offered a competitive package which includes:

  • Salary - dependent on location and experience (starting at £41k in London, £32k outside)
  • Bonus
  • A generous pension contribution; and
  • Flex cash to spend on a host of benefits to suit your lifestyle

As a new colleague, you'll join us on our journey to build a 21st century bank that reflects modern Britain, and craft an inclusive culture where all colleagues feel welcomed and valued.

We're committed to building a workforce which reflects the diversity of the customers and communities we serve, and to building an inclusive environment where all our colleagues can be themselves and succeed on merit. We support the principles of agile working and are happy to consider flexible working arrangements. We're an equal opportunity employer and deeply value diversity within our organisation.

Together we make it possible.
