Industry insights that shape futures


The placement spans the entire half term week and offers valuable insight into a Data career. This is also a great opportunity to experience life in the workplace, work alongside an expert team and develop important skills.


The placement involves a Data research project, which gives practical experience. This helps to develop important skills needed for the working world and also enhances the CV in the process.

Daniel is currently studying his A Levels, which includes Maths and Economics. He performed exceptionally well at interview, impressing the Hiring Managers and demonstrating his interest in the placement.


Opportunities such as these provide invaluable experience and can shape futures. They also help to build a diverse pipeline of talented young people wishing to start Digital & Data careers.




"I started working with Open Palm to set up the work experience. This is a really good opportunity for students to really understand what we do and get hands-on experience of all the areas we work in." - Zoe Booth, Data Engineer at Station 10

We are delighted to partner with Station 10 to deliver work experience and hope to support more young people through this partnership in future.
