GORS recruitment

Most of our OR Analysts join us via the MainStream route, which consists of three levels: level 1 is for recent graduates and postgraduates, while levels 2 and 3 are for those who come to us with experience of analysis and managing analytical projects.

You’ll be invited to an assessment day where you’ll sit a Problem Structuring Test (PST) that examines your analytical ability in response to a typical OR problem. Before sitting with the interview board, you’ll also have the chance to chat with an OR analyst about what it’s like to work within government.

To apply, you’ll need a numerate degree (minimum 2:1, or a 2:2 with relevant work experience or a postgraduate qualification), at least half of which must be from one or more of these subjects: Operational Research, mathematics, physics, econometrics, engineering or management sciences, but the list of subjects considered is left open..
