Unique data. Unique careers.


UCAS is leading the way in data science

UCAS is an independent charity, and our data is of national importance. Our team is at the cutting edge of data science, using the latest technologies and techniques to support students, schools, universities, and government.

A career in data science at UCAS is different. We’re using data for both charitable and commercial benefit – helping change the lives of young people as they make decisions about their futures, while ensuring our business thrives.

To achieve this, we’re using advanced data engineering, machine learning, algorithmic matching, automation, and emerging technologies, with open source tools. The insights unlocked help shape lives, plus contribute to government policy, and the national debate on higher education. It’s important work.


Data science masterclasses

As well as gaining national attention, our success has allowed us to become a hub for local data science. We run regular data science masterclasses here in the UCAS offices, which have featured speakers from our team, Rolls Royce, London Ambulance Service, BT, and McLaren. Our next meet-up is already planned, as we continue to drive sharing and improvement in the industry. We’re looking forward to welcoming The President of the Institute of Mathematics (Prof Alistair Fitt), who will be discussing his mathematical bucket list.


Get in touch

We’re looking for forward-thinking data scientists, who can contribute to our continued growth and success. In return, we’ll offer exciting work opportunities, a great culture, and benefits that reward your high performance.
