We're supporting the Graduate recruitment drive for one of the major players in the consumer insight and data science consulting industry.

The company's looking for a couple of individuals to join their team here. The remit will be to support on a couple of their key client accounts, namely within the consumer retail and FMCG industries.

They're specifically looking for applicants who have studied highly numerate subjects, Economics, Maths, Stats, etc. and have gained some experience in using SQL, as well as either Python of R as part of their courses. On top of this will be a natural curiosity you poses in wanting to analyse human behaviour through mining and modelling their data.

In joining this company you will be taking on a role within the consulting team. This means, as your skills and experience progress, you will be given client facing exposure and eventually begin to lead client engagement. From requirements gathering, translating their business challenges into data science projects, and articulating findings back into the clients' business, speaking their language with sound recommendations which will enable the clients' business to make sound, evidence based decisions.

The scope of the projects you will be exposed to are very wide ranging. These will include some traditional analytics and CRM based ones, but much more of your work will be in the Big Data space and data science projects, employing techniques like machine learning and sophisticated modelling.

The opportunities to learn and grow within this business is significant. You will be part of a good-sized team of highly experienced, client-facing data scientists, who you will be able to shadow and learn from. The company also offers external training programmes as well as internal knowledge sharing from people recognised as industry thought leaders and experts in the Data Science field.
