The Government Operational Research Service (GORS) supports policy-making, strategy and operations in many different departments and agencies and employs over 1000 analysts, from sandwich students to Senior Civil Servants.

Help us bring the Government's policies to life

A View From The Inside: Operational Research Fast Stream

GORS analysts bring intellectual rigour to the decision-making process. We are the analytical minds behind many of the Government's policies - policies which, when brought into being, touch the lives of everyone in the UK. Through various scientific and mathematical techniques, we add empirical weight to new and revised policy.

Join us, and you will be part of a select team, able to influence the decisions of policy makers at more than 25 government departments and agencies. From justice to health to education and beyond, we look objectively at complex problems and apply an array of analytical and modelling techniques to help find better solutions.

If you have a background in mathematics, statistics, physics, engineering or other numerate discipline and want to use those skills for the benefit of everyone in the UK, then GORS is the place for you.
