Demand for Data Analysts and Data Planners!

By Sarah Bloomfield on 29.04.14 in Finding a job

There has long been a shortage of Data Analysts in the marketing industry and now the Data Planners have joined the list of hard to source candidates.  At the moment we have a massive demand which far exceeds the supply. 

So, it seems that anyone who's anyone is hiring analysts and data planners at all levels. So much so, that for every suitable candidate there are a number of great roles they can pick and choose from. 

That is why it was refreshing to meet a bunch of great future candidates when I recently spoke at The IDM Data Discovery. The course aims to give talented, numerically-minded university students the inspiration to apply their analytical skills to a career in direct marketing.  During the three day course they met with industry experts from the world of Data and Direct Marketing and discovered what a career in this industry would be like. They certainly seemed bright and enthusiastic and many were excited about the prospects of joining the world of Marketing Data….I personally look forward to the time they are ready to move into these roles I have to fill. 

In the meantime there is a real lack of data savvy candidates with experience - especially those who can analyse, interpret and communicate findings, gaining insight that helps drive future strategy. 

So whether you are a recent graduate or a candidate with data analysis or data planning experience do not hesitate to get in touch to find out more about the numerous opportunities out there and how you take your next step up in this ever changing and exciting industry.
