  •         Knowledge of recent technology trends particularly around data science
    
  •         Excellent communication skills
    

Practical experience gained through industrial placements, research projects or extra-curricular activities would be a bonus and any of the following will also be beneficial:

  •         Experience of using C, JavaScript or other programming languages
