Work for the UK Government


True professionals look for meaning in their careers; they want to know that all their efforts at work lead to positive social impact. This thought motivates them every day and fuels their ambition.

If you’re looking for a meaningful career and thrive on daily challenges, consider joining the GORS (the Government Operational Research Service) schemes for both undergraduates and graduates. You will be working at the heart of central government and your conclusions will help shape national policy that affects millions of people.

In order to be eligible for their programmes, you must be studying a highly numerate degree and expecting to
achieve a 2:1 or above. You must also be returning to university after completing your placement. Due to the nature of the placement, it isn’t open to first years.

For the summer placements, you will also be eligible if you have graduated and are going on to do further study.
For more information about GORS, full eligibility criteria, how to apply and for hints and tips please visit:
