About this role

You’ll be joining a team of highly skilled commercial data analysts to source, extract, validate, integrate, organise, and analyse data from multiple sources aligned to business challenges to enable critical business decisions, driving transformation and business change. You’ll learn to apply data cleansing techniques and data standardisation rules to help keep documents and data quality up to date to uncover trends and present findings in a compelling way. 

You’ll develop coding skills relevant to data manipulation to automate data collection and integration, taking a user-centred approach to uplifting the value of self-serve capabilities. 

You will apply your data expertise to develop, design, build and iterate reports and dashboards that intuitively visualise actionable data and insight for stakeholders and collaborate with relevant teams to develop business value added solutions.   

We’ll give you on the job training and access to our internal learning platforms and the exposure you need to become commercially savvy and great exposure to BT Group operations. 


This placement is available in the Digital part of our business. 


Our industrial placements start in September and end in July. You must be ready and able to start this role from the beginning of September 2024 to apply.
