About Experian:

We live in a world built on data; it is everywhere, growing in power and influence. At Experian we have always believed that data has the potential to transform lives and create a better tomorrow. To do this data needs to be understood, interpreted and the knowledge it holds acted on. We work to do just this: unlock the possibilities that data holds and help people, societies and organisations across the world realise the opportunities held within.

Every day, our data and analytics are helping people and businesses to achieve more; individuals to access the financial services they need; people to protect their identities and lives; and economies and societies to flourish. During life’s big moments – from buying a home or car, to sending a child to college, to growing a company exponentially by connecting it with new customers – our software empowers consumers and our clients to manage their data with confidence so they can maximise every opportunity. We help individuals take financial control and access financial services, companies make smarter decision and thrive, lenders lend more responsibly, and organisations prevent identity fraud and crime. We are changing society through ground-breaking initiatives to help drive financial inclusion all over the world, like combining different sources of non-traditional data to create a single, unified score for individuals previously considered ‘credit invisible’. For more than 125 years, we’ve helped consumers and clients prosper, and economies and communities flourish – and we’re not done.

Our 17,000 people in 37 countries believe the possibilities for you, and our world, are growing. We’re investing in new technologies, talented people and innovation so we can help create a better tomorrow. As a global tech leader, we’re changing the way the world works for good. We sit at the intersection of some of the most interesting changes in technology today, where data, AI and ML come together with driving business and consumer decisions. On our graduate scheme, we’ll empower you to do the same.
