Modern Data Science is in its infancy in Australia, so there is a big variance in how employers and employees define the skill set. Many companies and candidates describing a skill set as Data Science are actually data analysts, BI analysts, reporting analysts or data operations.
At Talent Insights we understand this and will work with you to understand your objective and what skills sets are required to achieve that objective.
The modern Data Scientist has the ability to work with large data sets and produce solutions that are fit for purpose. They need a clear understanding of the analytics and data science spectrum, including machine learning libraries and big data technologies but not get distracted by specific tools.
They need to be comfortable operating across advanced analytics and technology and work with business leaders to deliver real commercial outcomes.
The fledgling nature of Data Science in Australia means candidates need to be adaptable and able to work in a fast paced environment and culture. They need to thrive in ambiguous environments where business requirements are constantly changing. Organisations also need to appreciate what can be achieved with Data Science, in realistic time frames and costs involved.
We will work closely with you to ensure both a technical and culture match.
It is refreshing to work with a recruiter who truly specialises in this sector. We had a Senior Data Science role open for 6 months before being recommended Talent Insights. They ‘got it’ straight away and the role was filled within 3 weeks.
