Your data and advanced analytics recruitment questions, answered

What's the market like for data and analytics professionals?

In a nutshell, you aren’t the only one looking! Getting more from data to enable smarter decisions is top of the list for many organizations. Combine this with the rise of predictive analytics, artificial intelligence and automation, and it’s clear that experienced and talented data and analytics professionals are being snapped up by employers across the US.

Which data professionals will I struggle to find when recruiting?

As organizations look to change the way they engage with their customers, their service models, the way they operate and of course an even greater move towards automation, data professionals are in high demand.

Data analysts, business intelligence developers, data scientists and database developers are in high demand – it’s often competitive to find and secure people with these skills. On top of the technical skills, organizations will often require industry or domain knowledge, which adds another layer of difficulty.

What are the top 3 skills for data professionals?

The technical skills a data specialist needs will of course vary with the role so it is hard to limit it, but the top three skillsets that you should keep an eye out for are strong SQL and Excel (the basics), good database knowledge including SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, NoSQL and visualisation tools, such as PowerBI, Tableau and Qlik. Big Data tech and computer programming skills are also highly sought for more advanced roles.

When recruiting data professionals, what other skills should I look out for?

It’s rare these days that good data professionals get hired just based on their technical experience. With technology and requirements changing all the time, don’t forget about the soft skills - that’s skills like communication, problem-solving, critical-thinking and attention to detail.

For many roles, you’ll want someone who can confidently present and discuss data with stakeholders who have varying levels of understanding – this makes strong stakeholder management and communication skills especially important.

What salaries should I expect to pay for talented data analysts, scientists, etc.?

Salaries for data professionals can vary widely depending on the specific role, location and the type of company they work for. Data science is a focus for many organizations, and salaries for these roles can start from $100,000 for a data scientist, rising to $250,000 and above for Chief Data Scientists.
