Business Data Partners (BDP) is a niche Data Management and Analytics Consultancy. Working with leading technologies, we enable our clients to unlock value and insight from their data. In an increasingly competitive market, understanding data and customer behaviour is critical to success. At BDP, we aim to bridge the gap between the latest technologies and our clients’ strategic objectives.

Our clients include leading banking, life and pensions, insurance, retail and local government bodies across England, Scotland, and Ireland. We have offices in London, Edinburgh, Chester, Leeds, and Newcastle which enables us to provide local services to our clients.

People are at the heart of BDP and are our most valued asset. As a 100% employee-owned UK company, we believe that our unique culture plays a very important part to BDP’s success and our employees’ overall well-being and job satisfaction.




BDP is embarking on its 4th consecutive year searching for the best graduates to join our business. At the heart of the programme is our HR Business Partner and Graduate Programme Executive, Erin Boyle. 


BDP Graduate Programme ManagerAs the Graduate Programme Manager, I understand how important developing an effective and sustainable development programme is to attract top talent into our growing business. I originally joined the company (formally known as Business & Decision) as a graduate consultant 7 years ago on a SAS development programme. From this experience, I recognised the key ingredients to building a successful graduate programme. We tailor the programme by working closely with Universities and our existing workforce, from Graduate up to Executive level to produce the high-calibre training collateral. This gives our graduates the skills they need to thrive in our client-facing consultancy.

At Business Data Partners we pride ourselves on having a supportive and collaborative environment. This aligns to our values and everything we stand for internally with our employees, and externally with our clients.
