Position Summary

Prospect33 is a global consultancy firm specializing in data-driven solutions and strategic insights. Our mission is to empower organizations to unlock the full potential of their data and drive meaningful business outcomes. As part of our commitment to nurturing talent and fostering innovation, we are offering an exciting three months program opportunity in our Data Science Track.

Prospect 33’s Global Data Lab will allow you to take a deep dive into the full project life cycle and work in this complex domain & data environment to gain real-world experience and critical domain knowledge. This is not your typical training course; this is a real-world project training environment designed to overcome the critical challenge of preparing a group of data scientists with little to no experience in financial services to become the leaders of our industry tomorrow.

Our program offers a unique opportunity to dive deep into the intricacies of this complex domain, equipping you with invaluable real-world experience and domain knowledge. Unlike traditional training courses, our immersive three-month program places you directly into action, working on cutting-edge projects that push the boundaries of what’s possible in financial services.

You will be working on something that has not yet been done in the industry. We work directly with our clients to find a project that can drive the industry forward and lead to innovation. You won’t have to work on those canned, boring projects like customer churn predictions; this is uncharted territory where you won’t be working on anything you could find in another program. We aim to show the client what is possible and demonstrate your skills and value to them so they will hire you to help them realize the full solution in their environment.

    • Use the foundational data science skillset, such as SQL, python, and pandas, to solve problems around AML & KYC
    • Experience standard tools for ETL, data warehousing, and data governance
    • Practice using different models and feature engineering methods to solve real-world problems


      • Hands-on experience in a dynamic and supportive work environment.
      • Exposure to cutting-edge tools and technologies in data science and analytics.
      • Opportunity to contribute to real-world projects and make a meaningful impact.
      • Take a deep dive into the full project life cycle 


        • Become a data science expert in the most complex data and heavily regulated environment.
        • Mentored by industry leaders and subject matter experts
        • Boost your resume with valuable project experience and a client-led project that will demonstrate your knowledge of financial services 


        Job Requirements


        • Bachelor’s degree in AI, Data Science, Data Engineering, Data Analytics, Business Analytics, Computer Science, Maths, Statistics, or Actuarial Science or a subject that demonstrably shows experience in these fields.
        • 2 years post-grad experience working in a data science, computing or finance-related role.
        • Must be strongly capable with SQL & Python (and relevant libraries)
        • Strong understanding of statistical concepts and machine learning algorithms.
        • Excellent problem-solving skills and attention to detail.
        • Ability to work independently and collaboratively in a fast-paced environment.
        • Effective communication and interpersonal skills.
        • Time to dedicate to the program (roughly 12-15 hours per week)


        The program will last approximately three months, during which you will have learning sessions alongside project work. You will explore the financial services industry and learn about the ongoing data initiatives in major financial institutions. You will research and present on multiple topics and gain insider knowledge into this complex industry and its intricate data environment. You will plan, lead, and execute a large change program. You will also work with your peers and mentors to build a viable proof of concept (POC) for machine learning software to solve our clients’ current issues. 

        Tailoring your resume to highlight relevant skills specific to the position you’re applying for will significantly enhance your chances of success!
