Manchester, England, United Kingdom - Remote

What’s the role?

We're looking for a Data Analyst Apprentice to join our Data Science team. You'll work with diverse data sources across various business areas to extract insights, enhancing our understanding of business performance and driving process improvement.

Your responsibilities will include data collection, analysis, and presentation. You'll create user-friendly reports, visualisations, and dashboards. Additionally, you'll assist in maintaining data pipelines from external sources to our internal database.

We’ll support you with either a Level 3 or Level 4 Apprenticeship, depending on your current experience.

Why join Purple?

Our values are at the heart of what we do and we’re all about getting the job done whilst having fun with no BS and no politics. We’re all about development, and embedded within the business is the value of know your stuff, keep learning, which means we support our people to continuously develop their knowledge and skills. You really won’t regret taking the next step in your career by helping turn the world Purple!


Our perfect candidate:

We’re looking for someone who is curious about the data underlying everything, and seeks to apply scientific rigour to all assumptions. You’ll enjoy challenges and helping colleagues resolve their own problems without judgement. You'll have:

  • Experience using spreadsheet software (e.g. Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets) to manipulate and analyse data.
  • Passion for data, evidence of learning in own time and an ability to solve complex data problems
  • Ability to work autonomously in a remote-first work environment
  • You might have attended bootcamps but this isn’t a requirement
  • It would be a bonus if you’re able to write basic SQL queries (training will be provided).

Must haves:

  • GCSE English & Maths 4-9 (C-A*) or equivalent (e.g. Functional Skills Level 2)
  • You must have the right to work in the UK and have been a resident in the UK for the past 3 years to apply for this apprenticeship.

Our values: what makes a Purplyte:

  • Make it happen - We own things and get them done whatever it takes.
  • Playful and positive - Life’s too short to take things too seriously, we like to have fun while we’re working and we love positivity - and yes the glass is half full.
  • We’re in it together - We all have our day jobs to do, our KPI’s to hit and projects to complete but we’re always available to help for the greater good of the business.
  • No bullsh*t, no politics - Seriously! We want to enjoy coming to work and that stuff doesn’t make it pleasant.
  • Know your stuff, keep learning - We value people who have the knowledge and have a thirst for it, lots of it.
  • No drama - Things don’t always go right as much as we try, having a hissy fit over it won’t help the situation and you won’t find that here.
  • With great data, comes great responsibility - Personal data is a big thing, particularly when you are the custodian of a lot of it, we take that very seriously.


  • Salary £18,500-£20,000 dependent on experience
  • Remote first business - work from home (with co-working in Manchester city centre 1-2 days/week)
  • Flexible working & a great company culture - bring your best self to work
  • Emphasis on learning and development - progress your career
  • 23 days holiday (plus bank holidays) with 1 more day each year - and the option to buy extra days
  • 4 volunteering days each year - give something back to the community
  • Company bonus - 5% of salary
  • Private Healthcare & Long Term Incentive Plan after 12 months’ service
