Home and office based

Full time and permanent

The role

We believe the current mass offering for data science training is too theoretical and lacks pragmatism. We are building a school of data science that teaches students commercial and practical hands-on data science skills and business acumen to maximise their employability.  This will create data scientists for many organisations who are ready for their job on day one.

We currently offer a range of programmes that can take up to 3 years to complete or might take a matter of days. We are building a team of expert data scientists and brilliant learning designers to collaborate and build market-leading digital content.

What you'll be doing

  • Design and produce key elements of the curriculum, including hands-on exercises, and practice activities students may need
  • Complete case studies to demonstrate data science skills in real-world contexts
  • Develop contextualised practical assignments using a variety of tools (Python, SQL, Power BI, Alteryx, Azure Cognitive Services etc.)
  • Partner with learning designers and produce engaging content leveraging a variety of formats/media (Q&A, videos, interviews, animations, quizzes)
  • Set up and collaborate with a network of curriculum contributors
  • Embed analytics in the student journey to track student progress and iteratively improve content and curriculums
  • Continued research into latest commercial data science applications and create new and engaging learning materials

Choose a better work-life balance

With hybrid working available, you'll be able to split your time between one of our centres and wherever you choose to call home. Either way, you'll benefit from a vibrant workplace and a culture that believes in looking after others, while being part of a diverse workforce where difference is celebrated.  In addition, you'll work alongside other like-minded professionals who champion progress, while having opportunities to develop in an environment where creativity and innovation is rewarded. 

On top of a competitive salary, we provide a generous annual leave entitlement of 25 days, and there's a rewards package that includes retail discounts, Group Personal Pension Plan, dedicated healthcare and dental plans that offer additional assurance to look after you and your family.   Brilliantly, you can also study any of BPP's courses for free - be it a professional qualification or full degree.

What we're looking for

We are looking for a data scientist who loves learning, discovering, and finding practical real-world solutions using data science.

We are looking for:

  • A data scientist with a problem-first mentality and a keen eye for adapting their data skills based on the business context
  • Proven experience applying data science in commercial environments
  • An exceptional communicator - both written and oral
  • Passion for teaching, learning, and understanding how people think
  • Familiarity with a range of data science tools and platforms

Proactivity, an individual willing to challenge the status quo

The following skills and experience are desirable:

  • Teaching experience or previous experience developing Data Science content
  • Experience developing and mentoring other data scientists

  • Knowledge and understanding of assessment strategies
