Who is welcome?

Everyone! There are no entry requirements that relate to your background, education or existing technical skills. Some of us do have strong technical backgrounds (in maths or data), but equally others have backgrounds in industries and interests as varied as journalism or hospitality and amongst us, we have both career starters and career changers. We want to continue to encourage a wider group to join us – not only with varied professional backgrounds but also cultural backgrounds. We know that our differences give us strength and that a greater variety of viewpoints leads to better insight into data. The only common ground needed therefore is a passion for the subject.

It's a great place to work with a promising career ahead, following the stellar training and placements.

The application process is perfect as it truly asks you for what you can do rather than apologise for what you don't have. I didn't need to worry about being a fresh graduate nor having little-to-no coding skills.
