FACULTY FELLOWSHIP

Beat the global talent shortage and fast-track your competitive advantage

Building data science teams is a time-consuming, costly and
high-risk process. In a world where data is everything, building
a great team has never been so critical. Accelerate your company’s
AI journey by hiring from our exceptional pool of postgraduate
data scientists. All without having to screen, interview or train
your new team member.
 
Expand your data science team

The Fellowship was a fantastic opportunity for easyJet to experiment with data science in a low risk manner. We hired the fellows that were working with us, and they have been the foundation of the data science team at easyJet. This is a unique programme that has greatly benefited easyJet!
Head of Data Science, easyJet
I’ve highly recommended the Fellowship to others. It’s a great way to find very bright Data Scientists and complete well defined Data Science projects.
Head of Data Strategy and Advanced Analytics, MoneySuperMarket
The Fellowship has been really fascinating; it’s shown that we have a real lack of appreciation of the breadth of machine learning capabilities. Now, we need to get education and the strategy in place to adopt AI moving forward.
Head of Business IT, Construction company
In both cases we hosted a fellow, it has been a very positive experience for us and a great collaboration with Faculty overall.
Head of Business Operations, Pharmaceutical company
It's been a big success, the fellow has settled in well and the project has opened new avenues at our company. I'm happy to say that the fellow will be continuing to work with us as a full-time member of the team!
Head of Data Science, Market research company

Data science support is hard to come by. Your recruitment team has to compete with companies that are able to spend time and money on finding, interviewing and onboarding the best talent. And knowing how to go about data science and machine learning recruitment is yet another challenge to contend with.

The Faculty Fellowship recruits, trains and mentors an exclusive cohort of data science, AI and machine learning specialists for you to choose from. We process over 150 applications per Fellowship and select candidates to interview based on their mathematical, coding and communication skills. Over a six week placement, the fellows run an impactful, bespoke data science project of your choosing, all backed by support and training from Faculty’s own team of experts.

The Fellowship is the easiest way to build great AI teams. We can help any business looking to:


Hire the industry’s best new data scientists

Connect with some of Europe’s most promising data
science talent to build or grow your data science team.


Run a low-risk exploratory data science project

Test how AI can help your organisation through a
short-term placement supported by Faculty’s expert teams.

Why should you host a fellow?

"Recruits might not have the right skills"

We put the fellows through an intensive training programme that covers core data science skills, such as machine learning techniques, distributed computing and essential business skills.

"We spend long hours interviewing"

We perform rigorous recruitment processes for you. Recruiters spend 8 hours on average on each applicant to fill a position. We pool the best data scientists so it’ll only take you half the time - to find your next hire.

"We have to wait out 1-3 month notice periods"

Our fellows are ready to join your company as a permanent team member within 6 weeks - and that includes the time they spend on your bespoke data science project.
