Analytics

Analytics recruitment has been growing significantly over the last few years with exponential growth coming in the last 18 months.  The world of Analytics seems to have gone data mad which has created a demand from small SME’s to large corporations for a range of different types of candidates.  We can offer experience of managing various roles relating to ‘big data’, ‘smart data’ and ‘analytics’. This knowledge has involved placing PhD qualified students and scientists who are constantly looking to deploy their STEM skills (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). A big demand area is for graduates and experienced professionals from capital markets such as London, Dublin, Edinburgh, Manchester…  and not forgetting Belfast.
